At the beginning of this year I set only one resolution, something I’d hoped I could reasonably achieve. It was to form one or two meaningful friends that would endure over time.
So many people drift in and out of my life, I wanted to have a friend that would stick. I joined a penpal site. After a few months I was happily exchanging letters with three people.
When one stopped writting I wondered what was wrong and left it at that. Then a second stopped a few months later and not long after that the third stopped.
I do not know why. I thought to write but thought that it might be pushy or invasive to persist. A friend suggested I just leave the ball in their court as it were.
I’m not sure what my resolution will be for the coming year, maybe something not so lofty and more achievable.
