Now more than ever is this goal important to me… 13 months ago

I don’t know how it’s happened, but sometime in the past few years, I’ve become the friend who’s better at keeping in touch as opposed to the friend who’s hard to keep in touch with. Weird. 2 years ago
One of my new years resolutions this year was to get better at staying in touch with my family. In the past I often felt I was always the one doing the reaching out to keep the miles not seem as far apart. I said I would make that extra time to make the phone calls, send the messages and so on so that the people in my family knew I was thinking of them and just maybe then they would take that time to pay it forward. Although my plan hasn’t actually worked as well I had hoped for I know in my heart that I made the effort because I wanted them to know how much they meant to me. 2 years ago
I always thought that facebook was a stupid website used by people who wanted to increase their popularity. However, I’ve now learned that, when used with good intentions, it can actually help you stay connected to important people. I have cousins that I haven’t spoken to in years, and we’ve been able to catch up and exchange numbers via facebook. I’m so thankful to have my family in my life. I’m gonna do my best to keep in touch with them 2 years ago

I haven’t actually done much in the way of making an effort to go and meet up with people or stay in contact. A message here and there but I never liked forcing the connection/friendship or whatever.
But lately since I’ve eased up more on the “why won’t anyone talk to me?? does nobody like me??” whininess in my head – people have been coming out of the woodwork. Some who I’d given up on I’m bumping into and having great chats. Others I hadn’t heard from in an age are facebooking me again. And I’m in a relationship that (for once) I’m not freaking out about.
AND not only is it the people that I really would like to have contact with again Not only are none of the ones I’d deliberately sloughed off for various reasons turning up. But also I’d say it’s at a time that I’m most open and relaxed to receiving people. Not while I’m still in a bogged down state
I’m really gonna have to re-read The Secret 2 years ago
Talked to KR about possibly meeting up when I am visiting my family. 2 years ago
