Some good morning or goodnight texts, or any texts actually, should be filtered and not sent. If you need to write it to get off some steam then do so and delete; this is probably safer on paper, but just remember the correct button to hit!
A text that was sent, but really needed to be re-thought can cause so much grief to everyone involved. If the information must be communicated, is texting the best method? To make sure, think of three reasons why texting is the best method and five reasons why not.
So often we think about how we could have behaved differently and how the outcome would have been. Due to the fact that we lead busy lifestyles, we often communicate in a hurried, spontaneous way, about matters that need more thought; therefore, my advice is: think of a time when a text has gone wrong for you before you do it again!
Playing it safe when texting is the best way and leave details to be spoken about. Texting can be positive in setting up get-togethers and for arranging events. However, using texts to blame others or express yourself in the deepest way, is probably not going to produce the most effective outcome.
Text: “I can’t believe you said that to her…Do you ever think?”
Now that text sounds angry and many people would take it that way. Funnily enough, one of the dangers with texts is we are never sure how someone will receive it because we make personal judgements, based on our life experiences, when reading texts.
