I told someone the other day that what means the most to me from others is consistency. I have thought a lot about that since the pandemic started. I knew something wasn’t feeling right from some people, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.
When people need me… I am there on their time. When I need people, if they are there, they are there on their time. Hmmmm… something is not right here. It’s not their fault though… I set the tone for how I allow people to treat me.
I have control over ME, and I choose to be consistent for others. I do not ever want anyone to feel alone or as if they don’t have anyone. There are limits of course, but I err on the side of being there for others vs. not. You never know what someone is going through, and that they reached out means they NEED you. The courage it takes to reach out for an ear to listen, shoulder to cry on, arms to hold them… should not be taken lightly. In this girl’s opinion, it’s pretty crappy to allow someone to muster up that courage and then dismiss them. What if all the courage they had in them, they used up on you?!?! Anyway, that’s why I take it seriously. Everyone has moments when they need someone, and I hope that the next time someone does NEED that person, you consider that it might be YOU❤
