Will a person's repentance be accepted if he stops talking to another Muslim?

Q: If a person is not talking to another Muslim then their repentence is not accepted. If this is true and a Muslim isn't speaking to another because he insulted him or a loved one and hence isn't talking, and repents to Allah for his past sins, his repentence and sins won't be forgiven by Allah because he isn't speaking to a Muslim?

If that is the case then how can one get their sins forgiven. Everyone has atleast someone they don't speak to because of something they said or did.

What if the Muslim he isn't talking to lives far away and he repents to Allah for  sins, will his repentence not be valid?

Is it true that Allah won't accept someone's repentence because they aren't speaking to another Muslim?

A: Allah Ta`ala will forgive him, but the forgiveness will be complete after they have corrected their relationship.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
