RE: 📱surviving life without texting on the low phone diet📱

in #mindfulness2 years ago

If I didn’t answer texts, I would get fired. When you work with friends, lines get blurred, text expectations become blurred, and accountability gets confused. Over communication has a time and place. It’s good to take a break. Not a break from text to scroll infinitely on the FBook, more like a break into reality.

True, friends will still be there. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Oh and by the way, if you only use Godzilla GIFs to respond to text messages, most friends will probably leave you alone/text less.

yeah that's rough. it sucks when a job requires you to have your phone all the time. do you have to answer texts even when you aren't "at the office"?

No, I don’t have an out of office reply, but I want to get the auto reply that kicks in while I’m driving. I think iphone has it, not sure.

Anyway, I don’t even have an office. If it’s late at night, I usually check the text and then ignore it if it’s not urgent... if it wakes me up. 😁
Theoretically, as a musician/freelance, I should be extremely responsive to the phone and possible gigs... If I miss the gig, then I guess that’s just the way it is. Better not to stress me and loved one. I’ve never missed a gig like that though. My “boss” is compassionate.

That's cool, makes sense that you need to do that. I do miss picking up shifts sometimes when my phone is off, and its always annoying.
