Public Service Announcement: “Good Morning” Texts
There’s something about waking up each day to a “Good morning” text message from someone you like/love. It makes me smile and (briefly) warms the frigid borders of my heart. Gives me all the feels. Puts a little pep in my step.
However, there’s a catch to the “Good morning” text, and it’s rooted in motive. When sending a “Good morning” text, two questions should come to mind:
- Am I sending the text because I care?
- Am I sending the text because I feel that I’m obligated to do so?
Once you work out the motive, you move to the second phases: the follow-through. Once you send the “Good morning” text, make sure to do the following:
- Ask him/her how he/she is doing.
- Tell him/her to have a good day/evening/night.
Also, when someone shows you who they are…even if it’s in a text message, believe them. If they don’t care enough to make text messages count, do you really want to invest more time and/or energy to get to know this person?
Until next time,
