Success Rate when trying to contact people from the past to make amends

Hello Everyone,


I am currently working on Step 9. My sponsor suggested I begin with living family members, so I contacted my two brothers and sister-in-law. They all agreed to chat with me on Zoom, and the amends went very well. Now I am trying to begin the process of contacting friends to ask if it is OK if we chat on Zoom (I live overseas, so most of the people on my list live in North America). Some of the names on the list are people I have not seen or talked to in 30-40 years. I am getting a but frustrated since I have found their contact details using Google/Facebook/LinkedIn, or contacting a mutual friend; however, with many of these people, I have not received a reply to my email request for a chat in order that I can make an amend to them. I am not sure if this is normal, since so much time has passed? I have a lot of names on my list and am wondering if I am been too thorough and that it's only natural people have moved on with their lives, and since I left North America 30 years ago, I have kind of fallen off their radar. Any advice or experience you have had would be appreciated.
