These people have made room for you in their lives from the day you were born; do they even know how to fill up this space UR leaving behind?
It would be best if you moved forward with UR dream, which is the law of nature.
Pause from time to time; think of their feelings, which makes them happy or sad.
Are they okay, do they eat their meals on time and are they able to pay their bills?
If you just found yourself saying ‘Oh Yes I must’ then ask yourself, when is the last time you called UR loved ones? More than a quick ‘All good?’ Type of call, calling a dear one and receiving a call from them brings in different emotions.


Ask yourself what UR friend circle is like now? Did you get so busy in UR quest for professional success that there was no time left for anyone? The hair on UR head and UR close relationships have they both thinned with time?


Ways to Make Time For UR Loved Ones
• Make time to talk to UR loved ones anytime you can; via email, phone or any other source of communication.
• Visit them when U can, check in on them, see how they are doing and what they may need.
• Show care to others and they will show the same to you.
• Concern is always appreciated by the one in need.

In UR formative years, you had lots of friends. U can count UR pocket money, but not UR friends. Ask yourself what UR friend circle is like now? Did you get so busy in UR quest for professional success that there was no time left for anyone? The hair on UR head and UR close relationships have they both thinned with time?

What U Can Do
• When is the last time you stayed home and spent a quiet evening with UR family?
• You don’t need to plan much. You could give each other a shoulder massage, or watch a show with a glass of wine.
• Set aside a ‘Walk and Talk time’ with UR loved ones a few times a week.
• Sit with a child and work on a school project. Sometimes chatting with nephews or nieces may show you if they are really comfortable and coping well or is it just a show.

URLife should be planned like a pie. A big wedge may be reserved for work, ambition and other aspirations. This can only give you joy if you’ve focused on the other equally important aspects of life. Share more than just the four walls with the people at home.

Get in touch with URself, UR friends and loved ones. Check how they are doing. or does anyone need a shoulder to lean on? Make sure UR journey does not leave you alone and isolated. Reach out and you will have the joy of being reached out to!
