Technology plays a huge role in today's society. Which means a lot of us have cell phones and we use them quite often. Talking on the phone takes time and you might no be able to talk at all times. But texting? lets be real more than half us text during classes, while eating, at work and even meetings. So saying you do not have time in today's world it is just an EXCUSE!!!
If you do not make time for them they will not stay around forever. I mean why would they if you are giving them a reason not to. You make time for those you love, you care about and those that you want to CONTINUE TO HAVE IN YOUR LIFE. This is like a flower, you stop giving it water and it will die no questions ask. When you do not give a person the time of day you stop putting effort to the relationship. Which ever relationship it might be, even friends. Giving someone your time a day is essential for you to continue to grow in a healthy relationship and keep it flowing in the right direction.
Also, if you only contact a person when you need something is NOT making time for them, it is making time for what benefits YOU.
Please remember that a person will ALWAYS find a way to make time for you if you mean something to them. When you are important to another person that person will find a way with NO excuses, NO lies and NO broken promises.
