Is it the depression? Could the social anxiety be to blame? Perhaps its the complete lack of self esteem. No matter what is actually to blame, keeping in touch with people is difficult. Perhaps it is difficult even if you don’t deal with the issues listed above. Perhaps it becomes more difficult when you look around and realize you have accomplished little to nothing in your life, and the idea of communicating with someone more successful is a bit embarrassing.
Occasionally, on a good day, I find myself sending messages and emails, hoping to reconnect with those who I have allowed to slip through the cracks. Then, by the time they have replied, remember these are busy kinds of people, I don’t care to communicate anymore. Maybe I’m lazy. It could be the fact that small talk is boring. Or I could be lazy.
I believe these types of issues should be attributed to the fact that we are all human. Everyone has things they struggle with. No one has it all together, no matter what their Facebook or Instagram may portray. No, we all have our faults. Fortunately, our faults make us no less valuable and no less important as human beings. We are awesome, flawed, imperfect, beautiful people. Everyone has something to offer.
Of course, human nature should never be an excuse or reason to just not try. I must work on communication. I don’t like it, but it is one of my weak areas that needs some attention. Weakness doesn’t have to be death. We can do the thing. Whatever your thing is, no matter how many things it is, you can do it. My list of weaknesses is longer than you have time for today. But I can do it. You can do it. We can do it. He can do it. She can do it. They can do it. Encourage someone else to do it. And we will all get it done together. Now I need to take a nap. Cheers!
