Have you ever 'forgotten' to text someone back and then see them unexpectedly? For me, this scenario has happened more times than I would like to admit. It's so very awkward. I want to say: "I promise I care about our relationships it's just that I didn't care enough to text you back". But then I realize that would be a terrible thing to say. I've also been on the other side of the conversation wondering: "I know you care about our relationship, but obviously not enough to text me back".
Going ghost on people (Disappearing via text/call) has been a wonderful way for others to naturally lose trust in me. If someone can't count on me to come through, they won't trust me with their frustrations, hopes or dreams either.
I've realized that it's better for EVERYONE involved if I lean towards over communicating rather than under communicating.
To those who go ghost often:
I've been there and I've lost trust with friends, even when I thought they didn't care.
Loving people through text is important in 2018.
P.S. It's okay to go ghost if you have set the expectation with the person that you don't always text back within the same day. I've done this with many relationships.
