I can almost Believe or Suspect that Everyone at some Point had Endured or
Experienced this Kind of Issue coming along your way,
That would be – Someone you Know making regular excuses in canceling your plans…
I was Listening to the Radio; if I can remember this one correctly,
They spoke about that People regularly cancel the plans they’d made.
Not only that, but these would be the Ones they said Yes to in the First place? ? ?
Most of these people at the End have something to do
OR by then their plans did Change,
Yet they didn’t tell you that they would be Busy or Possibly didn’t want to come along with your Arrangements made with you, to begin with.
I cannot say that I’ve met many People in this regard,
But I’ve seen a few people who I could easily do this.
What I have encountered,
When either You’re planning something or have an Idea about something,
There are ALWAYS those people OR Friends,
Wannabe Friends who would Jump at the Opportunity in getting IN on the Action,
But when Push comes to Shove,
They’re never there in the least bit!
Not ONLY is this One of the Single Most IRRITATING things I can Imagine myself,
When you talk to them afterward – Making plans with them,
They would Act like there wasn’t a Thing wrong
That they didn’t Drop the ball!
I must ADMIT,
At times when I was Really Tired and just needed to Unwind,
AS an Example;
When I was invited to the Family for a Lunch or Such,
I went, but didn’t really have the Energy for that,
As Life would teach you –
YOU Most of the Times NEED to have that Camaraderie with OTHERS,
Helping you to Blow-off some Steam!
Family – it doesn’t really matter which one of the Two you take,
If you know that Friend who ALWAYS forfeit on their plans with you,
You might not want to Leave them Be…
They’ll Always fall into that Rhythm of keeping out of the Loop if You don’t keep at them,
Keeping them in the Circle!
Some People weren’t Born Socially Savvy,
Other’s have to Learn to do this,
SOME have to battle through this Issue…
ONE thing, We are People at some point who have to Experience that Connection,
Even if They don’t believe they need it!
As I said,
One of the things I’ve learned over the Years as well;
Seeing this Exact Premise in a Film or Two,
Having Seen and Experienced this in parts of my Own life…
People who aren’t that Socially Programmed sometimes find it hard to Reach out in this Regard.
They become So emerged in their Own Lives, Living inside their Own Heads that they don’t even Miss what Life throws their way and Lives obliviously past it…
Such a pity!
When I was Retrenched,
Out of Work for SIX Months,
I found just how Deep I got Emerged into my Craft,
Having finished more work than I’d suspect;
YET through all of this,
I was also quite Cut off from those around me.
Take it from me,
Calling a Friend,
Asking a Brother or Sister to come for a Visit,
That might Mean for more to them than THEY even can Imagine.
The saying goes;
Get out of your Head…
Head out of the Clouds…
That’s very easy to say,
It’s NOT one of the Easiest things for Most people to do,
Having Good company when there’s NO Pressure,
That would help Your
Just keep in mind,
There’s be BIG difference between Socially Awkward People
AND someone just being Rude to you,
Blowing you Off because they cannot be Truthful
And Other’s a bit Unsure of themselves…
I do Hope that we can ALL see and recognize those who just waste your time
AND those who just need a Little Encouragement…
Be kind when you can be.
