When I don’t hear back from someone I used to have the default position that it is because they are either upset with me or I am not important to them. Technology makes it almost too easy to stay in touch so we think people should answer us within 10 seconds of sending a message! Here’s the truth: It’s not about you. People are busy, there’s bad cell reception, or maybe they want to think before they react. All good reasons to take a deep breath and know that you will get an answer at some point, and if the person makes a habit of not communicating well then you may want to think about why you have them in your life.
“Today I will give people a break and know that my worthiness is not tied to their timely response.”
