Re: People really do tell you where you fit in their lives; if we'd only listen!

Don't necessarily write someone off. It may be true that a person isn't their priority at present. It doesn't mean that they don't care or that they are avoiding that person. It may just be that:

They are distracted by a sudden life change
Working hard just to make ends meet or make sense of a situation
Too worn out to socialise
Dealing with personal pain or illness
Tired of having to pretend to be okay around others when really they're doing all they can to survive

I have copied this from a meme I shared on Facebook but it's so true. At one point or another I can identify with any or more of these points. Especially the worn out one. We never truly know what's going on in someone else's life and where one might think the least they could do is reach out and be a support, they may well be also needing support and feeling the exact same thing. Only the expectation is always on them to give it and not be the recipient.
