It feels shameful to admit that, sometimes, staying on top of communication with friends can seem more like a chore than a pleasure—just another piece of after-hours life admin. These are supposed to be your friends, after all.
Great read and thank you for @vasta for sharing it. So many things in this article struck a few cords. I do feel like a bad friend a lot of times when I either take forever to respond to a message or haven’t touched base with a good friend for a while — even family.
