Text messages…. don’t you just love them!!

by S1m

So this week the bubble finally burst on what has been a crazy time of late. I received some news I certainly wasn’t expecting at a time that caught me very unusually off guard. Hotheadedness mixed in with slight shock (and also slight  ok… total inebriation) collided to form a series of texts that should never have been sent.

Ahhhh… text messages, don’t you just love them! So instant, so easy, so convenient and yet at the same time so dangerous when you factor in emotions.

I am sure we are all guilty of sitting there writing the first thing that pops into our minds and hitting send without a second thought. Just as I am sure we have all spent time carefully constructing witty, well considered masterpieces which are sent whilst breathing in deeply and squinting through one eye.

Always seeming such a good idea at that particular time, do we ever consider what will happen 5 minutes later, or even 5 days later? No not at all. I know I certainly did not consider anyone else’s feelings except my own when I opened an unwarranted can of whoop ass via text. I have almost certainly cemented my nutter status now!

How do you go back though? You cannot erase a text once it’s sent, although that would be extremely handy! Nor can you ask the recipient to simply forget about what you wrote, once the words are out they are most definitely out there.

So, for my friend, who received unnecessary words from me this week, if you are reading this… I am sorry.

Those three words were not written in a moment of hotheadedness, shock or affected by the amber nectar. They were carefully constructed, well thought out and published without squinting through one eye. x

I’m sure many a true word has been said in haste via text message which cannot be erased. I’m not a big fan of them myself. x

Saying sorry is often the hardest thing to do so it shows alot of strength to be able to do that, especially publicly. Texts can be such dangerous things but also so handy! Exactly why I’m not taking my phone into hospital with me because I know in my emotional state I could easily get myself into alot of trouble!
