This was a difficult topic for me.. mainly because I’m the one who drifted.
I don’t keep up with old friends nearly as well as I should.
I have realized that I’m one of those people who will think of people and want to talk to them but always figure they have better things to do than to listen to me ramble.
Folks tell me all the time “call me if you want to talk” and I almost never do. It’s not that I don’t want to talk, I do. The problem is that I don’t want to bother people. I don’t want to call them when they are walking out the door, or having company, or taking a rest, or having dinner, or whatever.
I know this probably sounds stupid. And it is. It means that by the time I finally get up the nerve to call someone, it’s been WEEKS or MONTHS since I last talked to them and tons has happened and it takes a while to catch up!
I RESOLVE to do better…
