Understand your social priorities
It is okay to admit that some friends are more important to you than others. If you can finally just admit that, then you can prioritize them better. Why are you seeing that one friend you only have a moderate connection with once a week, while you’re only seeing that close friend you get so much joy from just once every couple of months? Figure out which friends mean the most to you—which ones enrich your life the most—and treat them that way. Schedule them that way.
