"I think part of the reason why we hold on to something so tight is because we fear something so great won't happen twice." Sad thing is that holding on will also keep a greater thing from coming. Fear should never be a motivation.
This is so true in my life. Not sure why I always have to be the one to reach out first. I'm done being that person, friendship is a 2 way street. If you don't have "time" to contact me, then don't expect me to contact you.
