What I would like to talk to you about is how you can mindfully interact with the people you care about despite these platforms that seem to encourage mindless chatter.
In an age where much of our intimate communication happens via text and the written word, it is essential to be forthright and courageous in our typed and texted interactions. It matters not if you are single, in a long-term relationship, in an open relationship, are poly-amorous, or are just plain confused: open communication is a necessity. Communicating effectively in all intimate relationships is important because conversation and sharing thoughts is a big part of said intimacy.
In modern dating and even within established relationships, there seems to be some unwritten (or in some cases, written *cough Buzzfeed cough*) rules about texting. What we cannot do is have a one-size-fits all definition of how loving communication works or what it looks like.
In previous forms of communication between lovers, hand-written letters were exchanged in between each rendezvous.  There was none of the instant gratification of an immediate response to soul-baring display.
There’s a perception that we can do something to be worthy of someone else’s affection and attention or that if it’s not there, then f*ck it, I’ll find somewhere I do feel worthy. Well, that sense of worthiness, deep-seated knowledge and wisdom, true worthiness doesn’t come from another person’s validation and attention. Remember, it’s tough to change ourselves and our own attitudes, but it’s impossible to change other people.


It’s no secret that if we allow it, we’re constantly bombarded with notifications, tags, and newsfeeds.
Just because we bared our soul in a 4 paragraph text message, doesn’t require a response or an acknowledgment on other person’s part. This doesn’t mean sharing every detail of our day or laying out the contents of our brain for the other person to examine. Just because we want to share some detail with someone doesn’t require them to receive it and respond.
Defining our own personal truth – what we think, our morals and philosophies – requires time alone. If the goal of these relationships is to love genuinely and feel love in return, why are we playing games and wearing these texts and rules as armor to guard our fragile hearts?
Often, in a texting, messaging, or emailing conversation, we’re anticipating where the conversation will go, or wondering whether or not to say something.
Develop and cultivate a relationship with yourself and watch your other relationships thrive!
We must dare to shine a light inside our mind for just a moment and reveal that which makes us fully human. It does require us, the writer, to release our words to the other person for them to mull over and receive in whatever capacity is true for them. It means treating each relationship and each person with the dignity and respect that they deserve, which usually means different things for different dynamics. I’m not here to admonish the direction in which we’re going and I’m not even here to tell you how to manage it or do a social media cleanse.


While we are so busy living out our own truth, we cannot deny that same right to those that we love.
You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.” In this space, we have the freedom to explore our own needs and wants, and to fulfill them on our own. If we miss them, they hurt us, they’re bombarding us, let’s put aside conventions and get real and honest and genuine. We can either spend this time agonizing over the impending response, or we can continue on our personal quest for knowledge and truth in our books, our minds, our journals, our personal practices, or whatever it is that keeps us living.
This is of course pertaining to texting and written communications, not face-to-face conversation. Treat each form of communication as if you were sending out a love letter with a man on horseback and can’t begin to guess when a response might come.
