do you regret not staying close with anyone?
I reach out to talk to people too much that never reach back out to me. If someone wants to be closer with me, THEY need to make an effort. I’m done always being the one to start a conversation. The way I do things is I’ll start 2 conversations initially if I want to be friends with a person. If they never initiate any form of conversation afterwards I never talk to them again until they do. I’m not trying to be the only one attempting a friendship with that person; I’m not needy. The one time I did that I got really hurt multiple times (mostly on my own accord) for looking too far into everything, so I mostly removed myself from that person or persons to protect myself. Yet, it’s good advice to never like a person too much.
