New friendships…Day 16

Have you ever wanted to get to know someone but was afraid the person was just too busy to want to sit and chat with you? Quite often I will make excuses to avoid going over to anyone’s place to visit. I can come up with many reasons, such as, I have work; I have kids that I need to take to testing for home school; I have to take someone to an appointment; if invited for dinner, I have sensitive food allergies; but most often used, I’ll check with my husband and get back to you. Often times, I will not get back to you.

The best way with me is to get me to commit to a day. This happened to me the other day and I followed through with going over her house for a visit. It turned out to be a nice chat and I am glad that I committed and went. But then I struggle with, Did I talk too much? or Did I listen enough? Because I am an introvert, I tend to be uncomfortable with sharing too much. But yesterday was nice. I hope that may I have a new friend…and if you know me, you know I don’t have many. But when I do make friends, I hope to make lasting friendships…in due time.
