I used to underestimate the importance of relationships. I enjoyed spending time by myself more that spending time with others. But I really didn’t give other people much of a chance. I held onto pain and held grudges. I didn’t realize I was the one missing out. I didn’t realize until now that good relationships endure.
A friend of mine told me that sometimes people just want to hear from you. This never occurred to me. I never thought of people being happy to hear from me even though I am often very happy to hear from others.
I’ve been in a weird space for a while where I undervalue myself but I’m working my way out of that. One of my new goals is to strengthen the bonds I have while seeking new ones and focusing on learning how to share my life with others. I’ll try not to let overthinking get in the way. I know now that any other way of life is not really living.
