Today, I let go of some pettiness I’ve been harboring. Over the past few years, distance has grown between a good friend and me. Our lives diverged, and I begrudged her for not putting as much effort into our friendship as I believed she should have. In recent months, we lost touch completely. I rationalized: If she didn’t try to make contact, why should I?
A conversation with a different friend put matters in a different light this evening, and I decided enough was enough. I reached out.
Why should I? Because there’s no reason not to.
