Remember that show, used to air on Future a couple of years ago? Game show, tested your knowledge at high speeds and the competitors got to vote off anybody with brains.. ring bells?
A friend of mine is reading “Blink”. I have not read it yet, not my style, but might after today’s chat session. Anyways, in a part of the book he supposedly discusses the different types of people. She says one part reminded her of me, he was discussing people who worked hard at keeping strong their weak ties. Make sense? He was talking about investing in maintaining a large network of acquaintances and working hard on maintaining it and keeping in touch with these people, calling, mailing, seeing them every now and then.
That kinda rang true, being honest wallahy, only part that bothered me is that meanwhile I’ve been not working on my strong ties. My really close intimate circle of friends know this the hard way, we seldom call, we seldom e-mail; we seldom meet, my schedule is insane, we end up seeing each other only on special occassions. Yet those are the people who know me the most, who have known me the longest or the most intensively. They are the people who mean the world to me. The ones who upon meeting after 6 months of nothing can resume conversations where we left off. The ones that you call when life has kicked you in the shin, or when you need some serious advice. The kind who get you without you speaking. The ones you are sure are joyous for your good news and broken up over your sad. They type who live in your heart and mind, even if they don’t cross your path as often as you’d both like.
You know who you are and I hope you are reading. For all those really important people out there. I know I don’t say it enough, nor do we see each other enough, but I love you, you girls/guys rock my world, I’m a better person because of you and you are always on my mind whatever I do. Will work on reversing the trend, of this you can be sure.
Miss you all molto molto, till soon isa.
