During this pandemic, we have been stuck with having to FaceTime, Zoom and text people as opposed to having face to face contact. Occasionally we may have forgotten to reply to messages.
There are some people who naturally take longer to reply, but when we have friends who are so quick with replying and then they don’t we question whether or not they are okay?
We see people taking social media breaks and naturally this is the same as taking a break from replying. The difference between a social media break and a texting break is that we just don’t announce it.
Rather than calling people bad friends for not responding, the best thing to do is to drop a quick message to see how they are or let them know that you are there for them.
We need to make it okay for people for people to not feel pressured into texting back.
