I’ve been overextending myself lately. Calling more, reaching out more. Making myself appear eager, when all I want is genuine friendships, honest relationships.
Maybe I care more, maybe not.
Maybe they’re scared, maybe we all are.
It’s tiring. So much so that I’m really close to letting go of those relationships, no matter how enjoyable they are.
They do not serve me beyond the now. They do not initiate, or try enough to make me feel that there is a genuine reciprocity there.
Rule of thumb, call sometime, communicate first, check in, invest more. Cause beyond being a real friend, that’s what decent human beings do.
