Failed resolution

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.
