    Now people not replying to me was one of my biggest bugs bears for sure and still irks me a little. So adopting the above attitude has been great for my personal growth in that area*

    Like some others of you have said I too donít really buy the ĎToo busyí excuse. Really? With todays technology....

    I just tapped out this post on my iPhone. Took me probably less than 4 mins....

    :)
    I think the too busy comes in when the friend wants to find a block of time to properly catch up and can't manage to do that so instead she simply goes MIA (which I don't do but I get it). I also have friends who send me texts where they forgot to click send - weeks later -has happened to me too. Kind of amusing because it's such old news.

    I have/had a friend who Iíve known for over 35 years. We were very close and went on many adventures together. He drove 4 hours to be at my wedding and I did the same for his*

    Since my divorce and subsequent break down he became distant.

    Iíve sent him 3 messages in the last 3 months and got nothing in return...Itís ok. I get the hint.

    This is something Iíve experienced with about 90% of the people I knew since my divorce and it hurts a bit when itís someone who I considered quite a significant person in my life.

    I guess itís something we all deal with differently and thatís evident even in this thread....

    Itís taking me a while but Iíll continue working on not letting it get me down too much....

    Love n Light*

    Thanks Bataya* Thatís very kind of you*

    What I have found is it seems a lot of people only want to know you when things are good.

    I kind of understand though because that same lot of people just arenít equipped to know how to handle it if and when the dark night falls*

    Just to be clear I am not like that at all. I'm there no matter what as long as I am being treated with respect.
