Nothing brings up all our garbage thoughts like dating.
Our self-doubt tells us we might be doing it wrong.
Our self-worth flounders a smidge. Or a lot.
So, when you go out with him, and he doesn’t text you back afterwards, your brain is going try to make sense of it.
Your brain may say:
- There’s something wrong with me.
- I must have done something wrong.
- I must have said something wrong.
- I’m not enough.
- He’s a jerk.
But none of those things are true.
The only truth is this: You have a cell phone. He hasn’t sent a text message to your number.
The “why” is none of your business.
And if you really must have a “why” to calm your brain down, here it is:
He doesn’t want to text you.
That is reason enough.
If you want to text someone, you text them, right?
If you’re feeling upset because he hasn’t responded to you, get on a call with me. I know how to help.
See you there.
