If You Want Someone In Your Life….Just Put Them There

Some things are out of our control. We can’t control other people. We can’t really control work. The weather, that’s out of our control. The thing is, if you want someone in your life, you will find a way to put them there.

If you want to see your kids, you will, and you will be on time. You will ask to see them…if you want to see them.

If you want to date someone, you will find room in your schedule for a date….even just coffee on your lunch break.

If you want to be someone’s friend, it is so rude to only call them when you want something.

If you want to show someone that you respect them, you WILL respect them. There is no way to have your cake and eat it, too.

If you really want anyone in your life, you will make yourself available. You will find time, even if it cuts into your personal time because that person deserves your time and your attention for a little while.

You will  not treat them like they are a task that needs to be completed. Like there are priorities above them.

…and if you keep treating them like they are the 3rd or 4th priority in your life, get ready to watch them walk away.

It’s not that complicated. Don’t talk about it. Don’t try. Just do it. There are no excuses, and you can’t make people unfeel things that you made them feel….so fix it before it’s too late and they’re gone.

  1. Kadie, this is so true. Words are nice but they mean more when they’re followed by action. A great reminder for all of us not to take things for granted…
