If you wandered in here, then it means that the cosmos wants you to get a wake-up call. THIS is your wake-up call.
If you’ve got a friend or a romantic partner who keeps blowing you off, missing pre-arranged dates, breaking promises, mostly being absent from your life, and worst of all, bringing toxicity into your everyday, then it’s time to take a step back. Take a good look at your relationship and see if it’s still healthy. If it’s not, it’s time to recognize that you deserve better.
Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently. – Wall Street Journal
A man in love with you can’t stay a day without hearing from you. No man is too busy for the love of his life. Don’t be fooled.
Never be so busy as not to think of others. – Mother Teresa, The Joy in Loving: A Guide to Daily Living
The real reason why you are hurting? You’re attached to people who have been distant with you. You’re paying attention to people who ignore you. You make time for people who are “too busy” for you. You’re too caring to people who are careless when it comes to you. Let those people go.

Nobody is too busy. It’s just a matter of priorities.
If he’s not calling you, it’s because you are not on his mind. If he creates expectations for you, and then doesn’t follow through on little things, he will do same for big things. Be aware of this and realize that he’s okay with disappointing you. Don’t be with someone who doesn’t do what they say they’re going to do. If he’s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn’t respect your feelings and needs. “Busy” is another word for “asshole.” “Asshole” is another word for the guy you’re dating. You deserve a fcking phone call.
Nobody is ever too busy. If they care, they will find the time.

People don’t abandon people they love. They abandon people they were using.
No one is ever too busy. You’re just not important enough.
I hate when people say they’re “too busy”. It’s such a lame excuse. Like no, it’s all about priorities. I’m busy too but I make you a priority in my life while I’m just an option in yours.
Most relationships fail because one person was being loved too much and the other wasn’t being loved enough.
A man who actually gives a fuck about you will never be too busy. – r.h. Sin
If you really care for someone, you will make time to make them feel special. Distance is not an excuse, and no one is ever too busy if they think you’re worth it.
No matter how busy someone is, if they love you and care, they will find a way to make time for you. Even the smallest text message or the quickest phone call can say a thousand words.
Why is it that I’m always there for everyone else, but when I need somebody, everyone’s too busy?
It’s not about “having” time. It’s about making time.
Those who are wise won’t be busy, and those who are too busy can’t be wise. – Lin Yutang, The Importance of Living
If the person you love is always too busy for you, it’s time to put your time, love and affection somewhere else.
Never be too busy for the ones that love you.

Busy with the ugliness of the expensive success
We forget the easiness of free beauty
Lying sad right around the corner,
Only an instant removed,
Unnoticed and squandered.
