I normally am not the person that reaches out to others, not to friends or family. So, I’ve decided that it is something I need to work on. I have friends that reach out to me, and I only sometimes respond to them. It’s important to be the one who reaches out first because I want my friends to know that I care about them. I feel the same way about reaching out to my family.

Even a simple text message let people know you are thinking about them. Sometimes, just a text message can ignite a conversation. It would be great to talk to friends and family, but it is sometimes extremely hard for me to send a text message. I’m going to write it on my to-do list; if it’s on my list, it will get done.

  1. I’m the same way. I’m trying to work on this too. I understand that people around me want to invest time in getting to know me. But I have a hard time putting that same effort in investing time in them. I’m working on it though.

  2. I understand this completely. I rarely even answer texts because I don’t want to answer all of the questions. How are you? Do you want to do something? Why don’t you ever do anything anymore?

    1. Those are hard questions to answer. I made some friends from the support group I used to go to. They understand when I don’t reply or don’t know how to answer a question. It’s nice having friends that understand what we’re going through.
