Firstly there are those whom you have to politely ignore, no matter how kind their words are. You don’t want them to see you at your worst; you have some sort of image to uphold. They’ll probably try to show up anyway.
Then there are those whom you will probably have to restrain yourself from calling. You know that if you get a hold of them, you’ll be begging them to take you away. They’ll visit and you’ll enjoy their company but you’ll probably spend the whole time complaining and when they’re gone you’ll feel so alone.
Finally there are those you’ll really want to visit and they’ll politely ignore you. It’s not their fault. They don’t know how to handle what is going on in your life. They don’t understand it. They want the image, not the truth. They might send some supportive text messages but they’ll do their best to avoid your calls. They know how needy you get when you’re locked away and they haven’t got the time or words to help you.
