I’ve come to the realization that I’m definitely the pursuer in relational situations. I’m the one who checks to see if a person is ok. I make an effort to talk to them and I make time for people. However, it’s never reciprocated. This year I’ve decided to stop running after people who would never do the same for me. I’m tired of going out on a limb and not getting anything in return. I think that this just means I need to be a bit more selective about my friends and also take the time to do fun things for me–at least once in a while. It would be nice to have a significant relationship that embodied more of a “give and take” type of approach.
