Have you ever been so busy that you just lose touch with your friends and family members? And feel like you are failing and sucking at life?
Well you are lot alone!!! Many people go through phases in their lifetime where the tasks and work they have, consume majority of their time, leaving little, if any for themselves, let alone others.
But, it does not mean they do not want to see their friends and family, it just has a lot to do with the timing.
Sometimes the availability is so limited that they choose certain people to spend that time with.
Does this mean as a friend or family member, that you are of lesser value to them in their life?
The answer is No! Simply put, it usually has a lot to do with convenience. The person with the busy schedule was just caught at the right time to schedule a time with the other person.
Now Dear friend, if you are the person with the busy schedule, do you think you need to apologize for not having the time?
If you have true friends and an understanding family, absolutely not. Never ever do you need to apologize for doing you, and focusing on the daily needs in your life.
If anything, be proud of yourself. Why you might ask? Because everyday you get up.
You may be tired and exhausted, spread thin, and over worked, but you still get up every day and grind.
This says a lot about someone. Despite the struggles, despite how much you might hate getting up to do the same thing, despite what the outside world sees, you are making progress. Be proud for how hard you are trying.
Now, how inspiring is it to see that even with everything else going on in this persons life they still manage? Super human perhaps?
Now manage is a relative term, but one used to otherwise emphasize their best efforts.
Best efforts to perform at work or school, best efforts to take care of the household, best efforts to take care of their family, all while trying to apply their best efforts to see all their family and friends.
At the end of the day, the main concern should first and foremost be about you, as you are your longest commitment. Everything else should follow.
I personally would like to say that I have so much respect for all the people out there doing their very best, with no recognition.
Life can be a struggle, but having the right people in your corner can make all the difference.
As a busy person, you need all the support and understanding you can get. Probably more so now then ever before.
So, to all the grinders, hustlers, and super humans, I recognize you. More importantly, you have my understanding, support, love and respect!!!
The balance can be overwhelming and trying to explain it all can be daunting. If you feel like you need something, planners have made all the difference in organizing the day and figuring out where you can find the time, if that is something that would make your life easier.
Key take away here is……. you certainly and undoubtedly do not suck!
