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.
