Who Makes The Call?

  Have you ever made plans to call someone and either side did not call the other? Let me break it down clearly. Person "A" tells person "B" that he or she will call the other person before 12 lets say. This time comes and goes and then when the callee asks the caller what they did not call, they reply by saying that they thought that you were busy or that you were perfectly able to call too. Now just to be crystal clear, I have been on both sides of this equation. Things happen and we all get distracted and forget to call people and so on and so forth. So in your mind, who is responsible for making the call? This is a subject that is up for debate in many ways. I am just putting it out there.

   Now what about the people that you call that never pickup your call? Have you ever been out with them and they are always on their phone? Sit with that one for a moment. Wait for it, wait for it...I'll leave you be while that settles.

   In closing, I wrote this short post because I believe that we wait for things way too much that we could get closer to if we just applied ourselves and didn't wait. When someone is supposed to call us and they don't, sometimes it's not a bad thing to just reach out to them and just check in just in case. Many times the call was not made because of things that are out of their control. I have been that person who was not called when I was told that I would be. I have also been the person that did not call. I make it a consistent practice to own up to my not calling if it happens. Life is not perfect for sure. Lastly, I tend to believe that we hold certain individuals higher than others. It is a truth that I don't speak about all of the time. In other words, there is a solid reason why we do not call certain people back or at all. I let a call go to voicemail just yesterday. The painful truth is, I know exactly why I did it and I have to be real with my decision. Stay authentic, its easier.
