There is nothing worse than sending a caring text message to a friend and not getting a response.
Thoughts that run through your mind!
~ Am I not important to you anymore?
~ Do you not respect me?
~ I know you have your phone with you every where you go!
~ What did I do to make you upset with me?
~ Are you playing mind games with me?
~ I don’t believe you when you say you just forgot to press ‘send’!
~ Oh, alright, you think you are better than me, do ya? Well, two can play this game.
~ Friends off, I hate you, my ego has been tarnished by this lack of timely respect. I now declare a text message war on against you!
~ I forgive you, but I never forget. Watch your back!
I think the sad part is that we are all guilty of this lapse in communication judgment, so why do we react so harshly when it happens to us? It becomes a personal attack to our worth when we don’t get a response within certain time limit.
Slowly we detach from traditional forms of communication, such as face to face dialogue, and we let our emoticons and exclamation points relay our thoughts and ideas. It no wonder we get lost in translation.
Here are a few insanely accurate reasons why we don’t respond to text messages. Yes, you are guilty of the same irrational thought process. Take the high road out of this childish banter and separate yourself from the reactionary ego-charged behavior.
TOP 10 REASONS PEOPLE DON’T RESPOND TO YOUR TEXTS
 They are getting back at you for ignoring one of their text messages.
 They find your text message dialogue really boring and are on social media looking for something better to distract themselves with.
 They are playing mind games with you, full well knowing that by keeping you waiting for a response will cause you bitter frustration and they get a kick out of it.
 They are lazy and don’t respect you enough to respond to you.
 Very rarely, but some times, their battery dies. This is usually an excuse……go back to reason number 5.
 Some people work for a living, get off their back! They are WORKING… smarten up, the world doesn’t revolve around you.
 They just installed the new iOS and lost all their contacts (yes, even your precious contact info). They don’t recognize your number and are worried that your text might be from that person they gave their number to the night before.
 They are upset with you and decide to be passive aggressive with you instead of facing the problem head on up in a mature forward thinking fashion.
… and finally… did you actually check to see if you pressed send after you finished writing your emotionally charged message? This is the worst feeling ever and really makes you look at yourself as a super self-centered individual, realizing that you are the only one to blame for getting all upset over nothing.
Which one of these apply to you? More than you’d like to admit ?
Don’t want to live with regrets?
Well neither did I, and here are 25 of them I lived with for far too long.
