Asalaam Alaikum/Hi all!
Is it just me that is sick of hearing that?
Yes I know people can get busy but are they really so busy that they can’t keep in touch with friends? Does it really take too long to send a quick text every now and then to say hello. To ask if you are ok?
I have a friend from uni who I am close to. We can go for months without getting in contact if I don’t make the effort to stay in touch. However every time we do speak it is like we just chatted yesterday.
She sent me a message yesterday (after about 4 months) asking how I was. So I used the line everyone seems to use…..Sorry I was busy.
The reply was, so busy you forgot about me?
Um no….I think it was the other way round.
For once I couldn’t be bothered.
For once I thought stuff it.
People have my number. They know where I am.
Yes I know people have busy lives. I work, look after my munchkin, look after hubby, look after the rabbit, look after the budgies, run around on errands for my parents, cook and clean.
BUT it doesn’t kill me to send a couple of texts now and then to my friends.
I used to make the effort. Now I am close to just not bothering.
If everyone else is busy then so am I.
