I think I'm at the point where his stupidity regarding the importance of showing them that they matter to you instead of assuming they should "know" that they do is enough to just make me want to not try.
I feel bad some days of wanting to part ways from someone I used to be able to call a good friend and be confident in that and now I'm just labeling something that isn't true anymore.
Not that he's a bad friend he's just always been bad at developing any kind of relationship wether it be familial, dating, friendship, professional he never makes it obvious that you matter. He will go hours or days not reaching out to you and then wonder why you don't want anything to do with him.
can you blame the guy for having that as a fault? I don't know but these are the kind of thoughts I've been having for months.
I don't know if its time to let go but I don't want to have a conversationw ith him about it because he just won't get it. I know he won't.
So I either have to be patient with him and lead by example or I have to some how let him go.
The other problem is, if I let him go... how can i do that effectively when I met him through our career. I see him everyday 40-50 hours a week.
So what should I do? I can provide more explanation if requested.
- Be patient and lead by example
- Let him go
- Have a talk with him even if you don't want to (Miracles happen)
- Don't let him go but do what he does to everyone back to him
