Monday Motivation – Friendship

It’s much easier and less effort to ‘delete’ a friend than it is to try and understand and empathize with them on any situation. Aside from loyalty issues, infidelity, physical harm or emotional harm a reason someone would not want to be friends with another person could be due to their own inability to be tolerant of another’s perspective or perhaps they themselves have an inner conflict which they need to tend to. We all have them and should always be working to better understand ourselves.

When someone does not respond to a text or phone call or even initiate communication we automatically assume that something is wrong with us and that leads to a downward spiral of distorted thinking.

We should all be more kind to one another and practice self compassion when life challenges occur. We should also try to see the world from someone else’s perspective which may give light to our own.😊

I think it’s more that people are so caught up in their own lives that they forget how important human connection is and they just assume that everyone is doing OK and don’t take the time to reach out and communicate except behind the face of social media. I’ve always been one that at least acknowledges any form of communication sent to me. Some people just don’t do that which is totally on them.

Never ‘think’ of yourself as insignificant because people are not calling or texting or emailing you or think you don’t cross someone’s mind. Those thoughts are only thoughts and they mean nothing… unless you assign meaning to them. 

Remember…. We cannot control what other people do or say or how they respond to us or if they leave us with no response. We can only control what we put out there and how we respond to others.

I believe … based on the posts that I often see …the majority of people on social media could actually use a ‘real’ friend or two and if someone doesn’t want to be your friend for WHATEVER reason… Let them go!! 💕😊
