One thing that hurts me is knowing I’ve ignored messages both intentionally and unintentionally.

I strive to respond and reply to everybody in a timely manner.

I’ve forgotten about people. I’ve fallen short.

I don’t like being ignored and forgotten about, so I try not to ignore and forget about anybody.

I don’t want to be left behind. I don’t want to leave anybody behind.

With text messages, phone calls, multiple email accounts, and multiple social media platforms, it’s hard to keep up.

Sometimes life gets busy and crazy.

I strive to be available, accessible, reliable, and responsive.

It gets exhausting. But that’s no excuse.

Although overall I believe I’ve done a good job, I’m always looking for ways to improve.

To those I’ve forgotten about and haven’t gotten back to, I’m sorry. I apologize.

I can’t change the past but am going to do a better job going forward.

Helping others is important. So is protecting our peace.
