Thank you for your response. Yes you are so right — “it doesn’t make you (or them) less valuable”. I don’t respond quickly for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with them. I hope the people in my life who I don’t respond to quickly never feel that they aren’t important to me. Everyone is valuable in my life and my responses, or lack thereof, are circumstantial and based on what’s going on with my life in the moment.
Sending love your way,
