we had an LDR
I broke things off due to my depression, and because I felt that the distance between us and her religious upbringing (Muslim)
would prevent us us from ever actually being together
she did not take it well at all
and convinced herself that she hated me.
how do you think I should approach reconnecting with her?
even just as a friend? I just miss talking to her. She was a really great friend before everything else

Eh no point, you hurt her and I doubt she'll be interested in reconnecting. Just move on.

If all you are interested in is being friends with her again, I am afraid that won't happen. You cannot go back to how things were before you were in a relationship just like that.
The best you can do is to shoot her a short message asking how her life is going. Don't write a huge message explaining you miss her, that will scare her off for sure. Just a simple, short message allows her to decide whether she wants to talk with you. If she does not reply, you have to accept that that is her choice. If you continue messaging her after that, it will seem very pushy of you.
