They say relationships go two ways, and when one side stops responding or stops giving, you should let it go. Anyone who doesn't make time for you isn't worth holding a spot in your heart for, right? I can't stop running this through my head. I have a really hard time letting go of people and just dropping the relationship, even though it hurts me to try to keep the contact alive because it's such a one-way street.
I've gone through a lot of close friends in my life. And it's me. I'm harsh and I tell the truth too much and I forget to sugar coat things. Or I choose not to; whatever. I don't have this group of friends I've had since I was little, and sometimes it makes me sad. So I think it makes me hold onto the friendships I have now too hard, to the point where it hurts my feelings to be the only one showing any interest but still refusing to let it die. Person calls once in a blue moon and I make time for them, catering to their schedule just so I can see them, only to not hear from them again for another month or two. Texting and calling and trying to make plans in the meantime, to be ignored.
How do you just let go? How can I stop myself from being the person who is constantly calling and trying to make plans, only to have said person (or persons) just ignore that relationship entirely? It's currently killing small pieces of my heart to hold on but I can't let go. Is it just me?
Here's a somewhat related song I cannot seem to stop listening to.
