Let’s talk

by surrender884

This week I was messaging with a friend on Facebook. This friend I had never met face to face. We had the same interests in poetry. So no there was not any human contact ever made. When using electronic communications without a voice or screen shot of the other person it loses so much sense of what is trying to be said. Face to face is always better because body language gives a clue to what may be felt. Anyway so I am trying my best to convey my message and the response was not what I hoped it would be. In the confusion my choice of words was way off base. This didn’t help one bit. It actually became quite irritating  for the other person. The lesson learned was don’t ever, ever assume the other person reading a message is interpreting it how I wanted it to be. To make it worse I lost a friend who inspired me to blog.
