I've become so accustomed to technology that I've become completely reliant on sms, email, and chat as a means to stay in touch with people. Never really realized that some people, especially if they're close, don't consider that as an acceptable method! They expect an occasional phone call to ask about their health and how life is treating them.
By the time I'm done with work, done with family obligations, I am so wiped that, most of the time, I don't have it in me to hold a proper conversation. I need some peace and quiet. So friends whom I love, I end up using technology to let them know that I'm thinking of them or asking about them. I never really realized that this is sending them the wrong message until today.
So, if you're one of my friends whom I haven't called recently, please know that it is NOT because I care any less for you, don't think of you, or don't consider you important. I promise to put in more of an effort, if you promise to kick my butt and let me know when I've become distant again.
Friends help us through the roughest of times. Nothing is worth losing them over.
Anyone else have a similar problem?
