I've always been one to have a lot of friends.
I like having friends.
It's always fun to get together with a big group of friends and just shoot the breeze and sometimes its just as fun to get together with just one friend and take time to simply catch up.
However, these times are few and far between as everybody is so darn busy. Lately I feel that I don't have time to connect with anybody.
I find myself feeling kind of lonely actually, yearning to sit down and just chat with my pals.
I know I am to blame in part for this loneliness though because to be honest I don't feel that I've been doing so hot at being a friend. For some reason I've been finding it difficult to just talk. To check in, to see what's new, to find time to have people over in the evening.
I want to be that friend that remembers the birthdays, the special occasions, checks in to see how the days going, sends a little notecard just because, but it just seems like I keep failing.
So I have to ask, how do you maintain your friendships?
What do you do to be a good friend??
