Miss Kitty, that actually made me laugh out loud.Originally Posted by misskitty;2704242;
About the whole losing touch one with friends and relatives issue. I have a bit of the other side of the story I think. I was always a relatively successful person, someone you could call if you needed a favor or a shoulder to cry on. And I was really comfortable in that role. Then about 7-8 years ago, I hit a really rough patch, and I stopped keeping in touch with people because of embarrassment/shame. I was the person who always had it together, and it was hard for me to be the one with problems. I really didn't know how to open up and tell people about the stuff that I going through, so it was easier to just avoid them. Now I realize how stupid that was, and how much time I lost with some really good people.
Not that I'm saying that any of the people in the posts here are not keeping in touch for a similar reason, but sometimes people are just too caught up in their own bullcrap to notice when someone else is trying to reach out.
