When you are busy busy busy, sometimes the people you care about the most fall through the cracks. It’s not intentional, but sometimes life just gets in the way.
I care about you. I also miss spending time with you.
You are important to me. You are the most important people in my life. I enjoy spending time with you and I want to be with you.
I promise you are a priority but the things I do are important to me.
I know it can be frustrating when I say I am busy but it is because I have so much on my plate.. I’m not blowing you off. The things I do are a priority to me; they are a significant part of my life, just like you. They are not as important to me as you are, they can’t take the place of you, but they are important to me.
We might not see each other every day.
My schedule sometimes doesn’t allow seeing you every day. Sometimes I need time alone to concentrate on things to meet deadlines; sometimes I don’t have time in my schedule to see you every night, face to face. However, when I do see you, I promise that you will have my undivided attention. What matters to me is how we spend time together.
Sometimes I need some time to unwind and relax after a long day. I deal with long days and very little downtime. While I love what I do, it can be exhausting. In those cases, I sometimes need to turn on Netflix and relax, or just have some me time.
While you are important to me, there are others who are important to me as well.
I might need a girls night (my friends are like family to me), I might need to spend a night with my guys, and when I go home I might want to spend time with my family. Every person that is in my life has there own significant impact on my life, and I need them just like I need you.
Please don’t ask me to change.
I understand that sometimes I really act like I am the only busy person. I take on more than I can manage. I don’t say no enough sometimes. But this is who I am. I have a "keep me busy" personality.
This is what I do. Please don’t ask me to drastically alter my life. All that I do really does have a purpose in my life.
Being with me can’t be easy, but please be patient with me.
I know it is very easy to say "busy" when someone needs you and very painful to hear "busy" when you need someone.
I know it can be stressful and frustrating being with me sometimes but please be patient with me, I really do care about you and I need you.
I do know that it is not about" having" time; but "making " time.
I know that if I work hard enough, I can be internally happy, having brunches and talking about our amazing lives we worked and struggled for. And that’s truly what gets me up from bed every morning.
