    I Don't Keep In Touch...

    If someone hasn't talked to me in a while I usually wont seek them out, actually for most people I assume they've stopped liking me. I actually love it when I can be distant friends (or whatever you call it) with somebody, so when we do run into each other we get along just like...

    A few weeks ago, I was told by a friend from

    back home that I forgot about her when I went off to college. I knew I hadn't, but our definitions of forgetting about people are different. During this conversation, she started saying things that actually hurt my feelings, and our relationship as friends. One thing that...

    I Get Anti-social

    I tend to get pretty anti-social if I stop talking to people, say over summer break, and this makes it harder to speak to people.. it's a pretty bad cycle :P  However, I am pretty honest and open with people so when I do meet up with old friends it's as though...

    Big Reason

    I guess that's why I have so many problems making friends.  I allow my present day life to intervene with trying to keep up with those that I have shared a portion of my life with.

    My Fault........

     I don't give a lot of thought to "keeping in touch" & tend to wait for someone to contact me before I start replying. I usually feel like I'm boring my friends & that they have much better things to do with their time then listen to me belly ache about my life or whatever.  I...

    Just No Time

    Of course I have PLENTY of EP time but yeah not phone time which seems to be what they all want. There just aren't enough hours in the day anymore to chat all night and ppl work all day.

    Every time I move to a new place I lose contact

    with my old friends, no matter how close they are, even when they try to keep in touch. It's always been that way, I want to talk to them but I always end up procrastinating-ironically-by thinking about what to write to them.

    Means A Lot~

    Everyday I think about the people I pass by, that I come into contact with... It blows my mind how many I let go, just like that. One moment of interaction, a passing glance, a shared smile, could lead to something else. Yet, with the people I have made my connection with...

    If one of my friends leaves my school,

    I never keep in touch with them unless they instigate. My therapist said its because I'm used to loss. I guess that's a strength.

    If you ask any of my friends.

    ..I'm horrible at keeping in touch. It's pretty much "out of sight, out of mind" for me. Isn't that horrible??? One of my best friends moved away last March & she gets mad at me because she always has to text me first. Then I will text for a bit, then I'm done. One of the...

    Why?

    I have been horrible at keeping in touch for my whole life. When I left high school and moved to do the uni in a different town my friends back home were always asking me: "keep in touch, don't forget to phone" and so on. Well, I did not keep in touch. People back in my home...

    Regrets

    I see all these inspirational little quotes about living a life with no regrets. Dance like no one is watching.  Go out of this world with a bang.  All my life, I let those quotes basically filter through my mind, then pretty much get flushed away without giving it a second...

    Yes, I Am Terrible At Keeping In Touch.

    I don't know why, but when it comes to keeping in touch with friends, I just can't seem to do it. It's not an issue of forgetfulness, it's just that, for some reason, I feel that they probably don't want to hear what I have to say anyway. Because of that, I rarely initiate...

    Just last week me and my family go in this

    little trip to a place called Christmas Village where they decorated this almost barren area into this cute pictorial site of Christmas cheeriness and fake bubbly snow (since there wont be any falling snow in the tropics any time soon). It was sort of a farewell party for my...

    Complex

    My biggest problem is my inferiority complex. I figure I'm not really important to people anyway, so I don't want to bother anyone by phoning or harrass them by showing up at their door. If I do call someone and it sounds like they are eager to get off the phone, it will take me...

    Like The Worst

    Seriously. I don't go on facebook, I don't like to call people and I never text people first. I must be some kind of amazing because it's surprising that I have friends. Even when people text me half the time I won't reply. I'll look at a text and think "I'll reply later" and...

    Excuses Excuses

    I tend to isolate. I also convince myself that people just don't want to know me despite the opposite being true when I do pluck up the courage to get in touch. I fret and worry for too long but I realise this is silly behaviour for someone of my age. Oh what to do what to do...

    New Email

    I don't know what it is that makes me terrible at keeping in touch. I'm a very private person but in all truths I want to keep in touch but with anxiety it's been a hard struggle to do so. I made a new email in attempts to better keep in touch. If we've been friends on here for a...

    And something more horrible

    than that is the fact that I don't 'response' when people trying to get in touch with me. I don't like social media (that you can't go anonym). If it's possible, I don't want to have even one account. When I change my phone number I usually 'forget' to notify people. Then, there...
