Cup Half Full: Molested as a Minor

73. Organizing friendships

What isn't working has to be organized. If there is a friend who is showing that I am the lowest on the totem pole of priorities more than a couple of times, then maybe it is time to adjust how I feel, and how I allow myself to be sucked into being the lowest on the totem pole of priorities. Maybe spending less time with this friend, and showing this friend how it feels is the way to go. But then the game, or dance of making appointments to have an hour or two together becomes once every four months, instead of once every two months means I have to take stock. Why am I investing in a friendship that doesn't seem to be working? Why am I letting myself be in a relationship that is so distant in caring? There are a lot of people out there, and I am capable of being friends with more people. Some of those people may like what I like. God, some of my ideas of what I deserve, and how close I want to be with people are slow to be important. Show me to ask myself what would be better, to work on relationships, or figure out that they are ending.
