Cherish your relationships before the holidays
It is important not to wait until the holidays are here to begin to cherish your relationships. The holidays are a stressful, but exciting time to honor your friends and relationships. Also, I believe the holidays present the perfect circumstances for relationships to fail. I think I read somewhere that a lot of breakups occur close to and during the holidays. I do not remember where I read this, but I am starting to think there may be a point to this. I am guilty of taking a new relationship for granted. I am guilty of neglect and not putting in the time to make this relationship grow. I neglected this relationship because I was afraid. I was afraid to tell him I was scared of committing to making this relationship grow. Now, I feel like an idiot because I lost a friend and a lover. I am sorry for hurting this guy's feelings without just cause. I am trying to explain this to him, but he will not talk with me. He believes that I have someone else because I have neglected him. I cannot blame him for thinking this, but it is far from the truth. Plus, there is a language barrier. He speaks English, but he does not understand women. So, I think I will write him a letter in his native language so he will know exactly what is going on with me. I do not care if he wants to be my man, but I do care about his friendship. So, my advice to those of you that have relationships is to show your partner more attention especially before and during holiday seasons. Cherish your relationships before the holidays and during the holidays. Then, you will not have to worry about how you can get your friend back.
