I remember the time where you can just call your friends most of the time and talk to them on the phone for hours without getting bored. Nowadays, it seems so hard to even message them, even if they are in the same university.
Is it because of other commitments? As we grow older, we have a lot of important things to do. Classes, exams, partner, spouse, work, family, kids....it never ends. Perhaps we all wanted to talk to our dear friends, but time and space won't allow us too.
Maybe it's because we think that our friends are busy, and they have the same thought about us too. You know, the feeling of "well he might be busy right now, shouldn't bother him". He thought of the same thing, so you both didn't bother trying to contact.
Perhaps it's our ego, telling us we can live with keeping most of the thing to ourselves.
Why can't people be more honest and just express their feelings accordingly? I am pretty sure most people will appreciate when we try to reach them, as long as it doesn't reach to annoying level. I sure wouldn't mind if people try to contact me first.
The last sentence made me laugh when I think about it deeply, as in "why?".
