I called and left a message.
I sent an email and haven’t heard back.
I took a small action and now it is in that person’s corner to get back to me. It isn’t my fault now, it’s theirs. Tag, your it.
I have a problem of taking a step and then not following through, relying on that minimal step being taken.
If we want something, even if it is for another person who we care about, it might take follow through. Sometimes more than one call or email. To be true to ourselves we can’t rely for two long on that first initial tiny step.
