I’m thoughtful, I can get trapped in bad habits in terms of feeling unwanted. Sitting in silence not busy enough. Oh, so optimistic – except when I feel rejected by the world. I swing between these thoughts and thinking it is my world. I’ve written I’m winning – I’ve felt I was a champion. Backed into a corner, out of options – how close am I to quitting?
I’ve learned every time I think why do they leave my call unanswered? It’s a sign I have a lot of time to think and perhaps an indication that my self-love isn’t through the roof – if I need their response as proof that I have value as a person. The text and messenger generation and I can see if they have opened my messages. Then it burns if they don’t reply.

If you aren’t on the list – they can make you feel small like you don’t existEric Maganga
I even take a traditional form of communication at times – a good old-fashioned call with no answer. But what I’m learning is these are just thoughts – they aren’t always in correlation with reality. It’s all relative and they don’t owe me anything – in their approach if they aren’t my relatives. I can’t play the blame game or question why these friendships transform, and they don’t treat me the same.
Question: Have you ever gotten frustrated with someone who didn’t reply to a message, only to get embarrassed when you hear they had a perfectly good reason? Leave a comment.
It’s a constant battle – internal, the world is how you perceive it. But don’t fool yourself into thinking if you give love you’ll always receive it. This is a key – you’ll always have friends that you designate as favorites. But the thing is, so do they. If you aren’t on the list – they can make you feel small like you don’t exist. But really you do exist, and an unanswered call doesn’t need to mean anything at all – he can reply at any time and render my concerns irrelevant.
