You ever have a friendship/relationship that changed and you couldn’t figure out why? Everything is different and you just…know…you did something/said something wrong even though you can’t point to what…(consequence of the socially awkward alert!!)
And you want to make it right…so badly and you would…make it right if you just knew what you did to $#%@ it all up in the first place. But the silence of the wrongdoing is powerful and the sign of demise is ever present…and you just want to scream out “Tell me what I did wrong and I will make it right” because all you really want to do is please that person and make it right.
But there is just silence and you know…just know…that no answer will come even if you request it and things will never…ever…be the same.
Request it anyway!
If it is over you have nothing to lose…and if it isn’t then you can…maybe…save something special.
Swallow your pride and own your actions. Sometimes you can do or say things without realizing the consequences. But do you really want to lose something by staying silent? By not admitting that…however inadvertently…you might have fucked up?
If you feel like you are losing someone you want in your life – reach out – hold on…and hope…
