“But what about my close, close friends?” I ask myself. Being a self-contained person, content with my own companionship, I can easily slip into my own world and be peaceful. Fine for me, but not always the way I want to be for my friends, without whom I wouldn’t have this comfort.
In some ways we can take our friendships for granted. We know we will be there for one another. But that’s not an excuse for sliding off the daily radar screen. So, I apologize for not keeping connected as personally as I want to be. In truth, I am apologizing more to myself than to you. And so, I forgive myself.
The gifts we give each other help us be our best selves.
