I think it is safe to say that time seems to be a concept that is dwindling in its nature the older we get. I’ve certainly noticed how time seems to slip by faster than it did when I was younger, and I think a quickening in the pace at which time passes is a direct result of how busy most of us are on a daily basis.
Because time seems to be such a fickle thing, it’s important to allot and designate time to do things we enjoy, and further to spend time with friends and family. This can be difficult depending on how busy our schedules are, but its importance is distinct.
Unfortunately, some of us are better at making time for these sorts of things than others, and it isn’t a pleasant feeling when you come to the realization that time isn’t being made for you in any given context. Whether it be in a friendship, a family environment, or with a partner, feeling like you’re not important enough to have time set aside for you and a specific person isn’t overly fun. It makes you feel insignificant, or perhaps excluded, and I try my best to refrain from making anyone feel this way.
As humans, we aren’t perfect, and it’s easy to get caught up in life and forget to make time for the people in our lives who truly matter. But, repeated occasions in which you fail to designate time for someone will more than likely backfire because they very well could get fed up with being put on the back burner.
I suppose that what I’m getting at in this post is that is really is essential to make time for the people in our lives who are deserving of said time. We only get one life, so why not make time to spend it with the people we love?
