    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Because I Don't Keep In Touch, I Often Worry Someone Will Believe I Just Don't Care Enough About Them.

    I have been derelict in this duty all of my adult life.  You see I have Narcolepsy, and it causes ongoing, long term sleep deprivation.  I haven't had a good nights sleep for 40 years.  I APPEAR to be sleeping EXTREMELY well...which involves hyper-somnia, because...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Though no wonder... When you do get attached to

    people and try to get involved in their lives they usually disappear in the blink of an eye when they decide to move on in their lives.

    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...

    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...

    I Shy Away From Phones

    There was a time in my youth that you couldn't pry me away from the phone. I needed that social interaction. I'd call up friends just to chat about anything and everything. Then I noticed that I was the only one doing the calling and I wondered why. Come to find out, they...

    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...

    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...

    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.
