Over the course of the last decade and a half, texting has increasingly become a constant part of waking life.For most people these days, it’s tough to imagine waiting for something or sitting idle without checking your texts, social media, etc.
And if you haven’t discovered this yet, it will be at these moments that you discover one of the necessities of modern relationships is to remain undisturbed when it does happen.
I mean, could you imagine being bored in today’s world? Plain and simple: It is within moments of space where we are most able to connect with ourselves and the life within us.
The most sane thing you can do for yourself is to start bringing space into your life as much as possible. Our outer world of smartphones and social media is a constant stream of unending noise and a frantic freight train of activity to react to.
When it comes to relationships, treat your actual physical time together as your quality time.
It is infinitely better than text messages, there’s no room for misinterpretation or miscommunication like there is in the limited medium of texting and it takes the pressure off both of you.
