Every day we think about people. We think of people we love. People we miss. And we might get very sad doing that. We might get sad if we know we are thinking about people who are not thinking about us.
That is the worst.
Knowing that you are spending your time and mental energy thinking about someone who is not thinking of you in return. Missing someone who is not missing you.
And you might get angry with yourself for doing it. For thinking it. But it is impossible to stop. Because if people matter, they will fill your mind.
And opposite. The same goes for mattering to them and filling their minds. If you matter. You will. If you don’t. You won’t.
That is the sad part.
But there is no point in being angry with yourself. Give yourself credit for allowing people to matter to you. For allowing yourself to care for them. Nothing wrong with that.
Remind yourself that every day is different. You might be thinking of someone today who is not thinking of you. But tomorrow it might be reversed.
And remind yourself that every person is different. You might be thinking of someone who is not thinking of you. But I guarantee you that someone is also thinking of you without you thinking of them. And I bet there are more than you think.
So don’t feel sad. Someone is thinking of you. Maybe someone you would never imagine. Maybe someone you have never noticed. Maybe a stranger. Maybe a friend. Maybe a lover. Maybe.
And hopefully someone is thinking of me too.
