Priorities. We all have priorities in our life. When people tell me they’re too busy, I secretly add in my head “because it’s not important.” When people decide something is important, they do it.
The same goes for you. If someone decides you are important, he or she will commit to you. The person will make time for you. The person will want to be with you. The person will have no lame excuses as to why he or she isn’t available.
The same goes for “things.” If being healthy is important, people will make time to be healthy. If being kind is important, people will be kind.
Actions delineate priorities. This makes it easy to see who really cares about you.
People who would rather be with you then be with many partners or alone, care about you.
People who say they’d rather be alone or with many people, don’t give a flying f*ck about you.
Friends who show up when you need help, care.
Friends who reach out and want to connect with you, care.
