People don’t understand what it means when I say I want someone to care about me.
Don’t wish me happy birthday just because Facebook reminded you to.
Don’t post words of encouragement when I post despair just to have that be the only communication that ever happens.
Be in my life.
Talk to me face to face at least once a week.
Text me on a regular basis asking about me and telling me what’s going on in your life. I want to be in someone’s life and that’s what I would do.
But I can’t initiate it. I can’t start being the friend I need someone to be, because I don’t think I’m really wanted.
But I do know that over time, if someone starts being in my life, I would become actively in theirs.
But I couldn’t do it until I knew for sure that they wanted me there.
And that would take some time.
