Great article! It depends if there was a prior relationship or not. Sometimes, estrangement is caused by others and we're just in the way. Inheritance disputes certainly cause lots of cut contacts. No surprise there - money $$. In my opinion, if there is no danger in trying to re-establish relations, one can always try but just once. If the estrangement was about cutting contact from a psychopath - then it's best to use the ''no contact ever again'' strategy. You can't fix psychopaths, so just cut them out of your life.
