Have you ever heard the phrase, "It is a two way street"?
This was a phrase used to me often when I had to call my mom at any time after she never called me. This is also the phrase now I use for the same person who never contacts me.
This person taught me that it IS indeed a two way street and well, that two way street has been a one way street for far too long.
Stop trying to mend relationships and I am positive that you will not hear from people ever again. Instead, they will post about other peoples' accomplishments, completely forgetting the fact that they have other people they should be proud of.
Yet, your phone is constantly dry.
You see their posts, you want to reach out but instead it builds up inside you. You start wondering why in the world some people are more important than others. In all honesty, it makes no sense at all.
Why should you constantly make an effort in order to be close to someone and have that relationship, when effort is never given back in return?
Have you ever just been completely sick of seeing some things people post, so you think about blocking them completely? Not just from social media but also your life.
That has been how I have felt on so many occasions the last few years.
There comes a time when it is no longer your responsibility to try and make amends when you are not getting anywhere from it.
You cant text and call constantly, but it never gets you anywhere.
You can check in, tell them you are okay, and it never gets you anywhere.
You can try texting them daily, scared to stop because you know that if you stop trying, you will never hear from them again.
It is time for you to let go, do you and do you so good that they wish they were still in your life.
They will regret not being around during your accomplishments. They always do. That is why they will always come back after you no longer want or need them around.
