Behind the Text

In today's world, it's so easy to text vs. pick up the phone and have a conversation. Why are we a society that craves social media likes, gaining more followers vs. a voice-to-voice?

Then the pandemic hit, people became angry with the restriction imposed. I am guilty as well of texting vs. picking up the phone.

Now there was a need for human touch, feelings, contact.

My frustration is when I have to text a long conversation with someone when it is so much easier to pick up the phone, so I would stop texting and call.

I love hearing the voices of family and friends.

Speaking with that special someone, hear their voice.

I crave it every single day.

Am not sure they understand what pain and trauma I endured for the 2 1/2 years?

A prisoner to a ding on notification on the phone the source of the connection.

How do I reach the heart of a text?

How do I explain the rare emotions?

There are so many people I wish I could speak with on the phone who are no longer alive.

Have we become our own worse nightmare?

How do I reach the heart of a text? You don't! Unless the text says, 'I LOVE YOU,' The level of inferences is off the roof. Especially after you make that call to explain the misunderstanding - that's a bummer. I won't do long texting PERIOD! I will send you an email or call you. I told someone via text that I deleted their text because it was too lengthy; they needed to call. When they called, the person had the nerve to have an attitude. REALLY! However, all in all, this is a new era we're in.
