The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
With so many cellular features at our fingertips, it is hard not to engage (or disengage) with another person in the blink of an eye. There are many advantages and disadvantages of modern cellular communication, but it is important to be aware of how and when to use these features.
If you enjoy talking a lot and find yourself going on for hours at a time, talking on the phone can be a great relationship booster! It is much easier to express yourself by talking than through texting. Talking over the phone can help you learn more about the other person and be more understanding of their emotions, concerns and struggles. It can be used as a continuation of conversations that occur in person, making the transition much easier.
If you are not the type of person who enjoys long chats or are awkward speaking on the phone, then do not utilize this feature; it can potentially ruin a relationship. Unfortunately, talking on the phone is becoming a lost art. Many people prefer to text, which is taking away our opportunity to hear the other person’s voice, emotions, laughter or pain.
Beware of texting! It can either boost a relationship or throw it in the dumps. If you and another person click via texting, then you have nothing to worry about; continue typing away. The issue that presents itself with texting is that your words can be misinterpreted by the other person, resulting in an outcome which you did not intend for.
An important point to make is to always be yourself! Unfortunately, we live in a society where selfishness, manipulation and “ghosting” have become the norm; many people are too self-absorbed. In result, your innocent and friendly texts can go unnoticed, leaving you wondering what you did wrong.
But you did nothing wrong! This is the problem with modern-day texting. It’s hit or miss: either you have people who you can rely on without the worry of them vanishing or you message people who transform into ghosts and disappear from your life. People cannot be changed nor should it be your agenda to change them.
No matter what the positives and negatives of modern cellular communication are, the most important point is to be yourself, live with dignity and focus on bettering your life. Do not waste time and energy wondering why someone is ignoring your calls or not responding to your texts. Live your life on your terms! Find a path that anchors you in a stable mindset and keep moving forward towards success!
The people who are meant to be in your life will stick around or will come back at the right time. Do not chase after people; chase after happiness, excellent physical and mental health and prosperity!
