Been trying to come up with a template for an email I can send out to folks that basically says, “Sorry I’m a poor friend and have not replied to your requests for a get-together or talk-soon but when I get overwhelmed in life I find those the most difficult to do though they are likely what would help the most and it’s something I would like to be better at and work on but my brain often makes that hard, nay seemingly insurmountable, and enters me into a terrible negative feedback loop just thinking about it so I just put my nose to the grindstone of life’s other things and avoid it but do know that the desire is there, right next to the guilt, and I hope to correct this soon.”
