Why does this one letter give us so much anxiety? That letter, especially paired with the abrupt punctuation, says more than an entire paragraph. Regardless of what that text really means, the damage has been done.
So why are virtual messages so easily misconstrued? When we communicate via text, a lot of that gets lost in translation. One of the most useful tools in your toolbox is an emoji. Since tone is audible, we need to find a way to replace it with a visual and sometimes all you need to send is an emoji, or two, to describe your mood. The same can easily happen over text. Take a minute to cool down and think, rather than responding in the heat of the moment.
Unlike in person, you can draft, edit, delete and change your answers before you press send. If this is just too difficult to do, this may be a that this conversation should be had in person. Some things just need to be said face to face, but also in a healthy manner. So, how many texts are too many in a day?
Sometimes in a relationship, there are expectations that you have to be in constant contact with your partner. Or, give them specific times of the day that you can text so that they know when to leave you be and when they can check-in and say hey. I stare at my phone waiting. And waiting. Then, the type bubbles appear.
Then disappear. More stress.
To minimize this stress, try to be mindful and respectful of the other person. So if you know you want to have that important conversation, manage your expectations of how that might look over text. And if you find yourself constantly staring at that read receipt time stamp, knowing full well your partner is intentionally ignoring you, that is not necessarily healthy communication. A healthy way to let your partner know this is simply by telling them. It is a lot easier to ignore a text and forget about it than to ignore someone in person.
But remember that there is a person on the other end of that phone waiting for a response, wondering what happened. No one likes to be ghosted. Let them know exactly what you need.
Respecting your right to space also means your partner is using social media to make you feel guilty. Space in a relationship can be tricky when our lives are shared online, but remember that both you and your partner are allowed to take your space if you need it. The healthiest way to get that space is to clearly and kindly communicate it to our partners. Texting is one of the wonderful conveniences of technology that have given us so much to be grateful for: pizza emojis, group chats with our BFFs to make plans but mainly to have pointless and endless convosand no more waiting to share the funniest thing you just saw at the store.
