“Don’t let someone become a priority in your life when you are just an option in theirs.”
Wow, I saw this quote on someone’s status on Facebook last week and it struck a huge chord.
Why spend so much time and energy trying to talk to others when they’re not making the same effort trying to talk to you?
I know it goes both ways. There are people in my life who make way more effort than I do. They realize perhaps that I don’t have the same amount of time for them as they do for me, and I can appreciate that. It’s cool they still put in the effort. And sometimes you have to be the one to put in more effort.
But on a regular basis? And why should one person have to do all the work in a relationship? They shouldn’t. Relationships which are one sided are not healthy relationships at all.
And so with that, it’s time to prune.
