hey!!! just a little reminder
don’t ever get upset with someone because they reply late or don’t continue a conversation or something
because they might just not know what to say!!! or they might not be good at replying or they might just be busy with something
and it isn’t very nice to get angry or upset with them if they forget to reply or something!!!
so just keep that in mind i guess!! just try to think about they are feeling
thank you and have a wonderful day/night!!!!
hmm I don’t fully agree with this. The person not replying should think about how they’re making the other person feel. Fair enough if the person is really sick or hasn’t seen the message or has no credit or their internet cut out or something, but just not bothering with it is rude. I always reply to people as soon as I see a message regardless of how bad I’m feeling or what I’m doing (unless I’m in the bathroom or something of course!). Unless you’re weighed down with essay deadlines or are working all day I don’t think there is such a thing as “busy” - it takes a few seconds/mins to reply to someone, everyone has time to go to the toilet, eat a meal and shower everyday and if you have time to do those small things then taking an extra few seconds/mins to put the effort in and reply to someone is really not going to make that much of a difference to your “busy” day. Everyone can spare a few seconds to type some words. Otherwise it just makes it look like you don’t value your friends and can’t be bothered with them, if thats the case you shouldn’t bother making friends in the first place. It’s not really good in any case, but fair enough I suppose if its just with acquaintances, because they probably won’t expect you to be very chatty or eager to reply anyway, but actual friends for example, people should really put in more effort and if you are feeling stressed or bad then at least tell your friends that, saying something is better than saying nothing, just say “hey, sorry I’ve been feeling really upset recently about some things and am finding it hard to cope, we can talk later/I’ll reply properly later”. Manners! That’s what I would do anyway, just need to be a bit thoughtful. I wouldn’t say hold a grudge against someone who hasn’t replied or hasn’t replied quickly, but you have every right to be peeved and potentially upset, it can make you feel like the other person can’t be bothered with you, which is horrible if they’re your friend. Just needs to be more balanced - the receivers need to maybe check up on their friend and ask if they’re ok and make some allowances, and the non-replyer needs to be more thoughtful and at least say something, even if its quick, or at least apologize later. Appreciate your friends - they might not be there forever.
