I’m guilty of treating random strangers better than I treat my own family and friends.
I probably take my family and friends for granted. I just think they’ll always be there.
It’s easy being nice to random strangers. These interactions are usually short and sweet.
Relationships on the other hand take effort and work. It takes time picking up the phone, making visits, and giving our time, energy, and attention.
Relationships are two-way streets. Somebody has to make the first move.
How much do we truly care? Do we even want a relationship? Will we make an effort?
