I fully believe that no one has to earn the right to talk to anybody. If you want to talk to someone, just message them. I often feel like I’m annoying because I can send like 5 or 10 snapchats to a person without them even opening the first one, and when they finally do they don’t really reply to them. I also feel like I bother people a lot by messaging them and that’s why they don’t reply to me sometimes.
But here’s the thing. You don’t owe it to someone to reply to their every message either. It’s okay to not wanna talk right now, doesn’t mean they’re not your friends or you don’t wanna talk to them ever. And it’s okay to be retweeting and liking posts on Instagram while not replying to a message someone has sent you. It requires a different focus, different energy, different moods to talk to someone than it does to sit on your phone browsing social media.
Really, what I wanted to say with this post, like the headline says, is that it’s okay. It’s okay to overly message someone if that’s what you feel like. It’s okay to not reply if that’s what you feel like. In my life, I’ve always been told that it’s important to think about other people, and people who focus on themselves a lot get called egoistic and other words with negative connotations. But the thing is, it’s important to focus on yourself too. You are the only person who has to be around you 24/7, it’s important to take care of yourself, and to do things you want to do. If you want to tweet, snapchat, Instagram your life, or send 15 messages in a row to someone on Facebook, do that. If you want to be alone and not converse with other people, do that.
This concludes my little rant for the night. Julie out, goodnight ❤️
