I’m going to make a commitment to reconnecting with old friends. At least one person a week. I want to make a conscious effort to see what they’re up to, chat with them, maybe get dinner or hang out in some way. My circle has gotten too small. I cling to what/who I’m comfortable with too much! I see the same people every weekend.. which isn’t a bad thing but it’s not the best thing for a young person. I had a lot of people I was really close to before, we’ve grown apart for many different reasons, some of it was because of time and distance, some of it for more difficult/hurtful reasons. I’ll save the harder ones for last I guess, but I really should reconnect with old friends.
That being said, I should also try to connect with acquaintances, people that I’ve hung out with a few times but never really got close to. I’ve been trying with a few people, it’s a little bit awkward but if they put out the effort to come hang out with me then it’s worth it to keep going!!
A little bit at a time, at least one person a week!
