The Magic Of Making Up: Text Message Terrorism
One of the more harmful activities following a breakup is for you to seek constant contact regardless of the feedback you receive.
Text messaging has become an integral form of communication, often replacing in person or over the phone conversations. The problem with text message terrorism, as TW Jackson explains, is that you are in emotional distress and are very likely to say something you'll regret.
It's also counter productive to the principles taught in The Magic Of Making Up. In order to get your ex back you need to re-establish your worth and value in the eyes of your ex. You need to make your ex want you back.
What kind of image are you portraying if you send text messages every twenty minutes?
Needy. Desperate. High maintenance. Do you think those traits will help your cause? Definitely not. If anything it will create a new barrier and push your ex further away.
So put the phone down, stop text messaging, and follow the recommended steps for the first 30 days of the plan to get your ex back.
I know it's difficult. There's a craving, an urgency to reach out. You want acknowledgmentent from your ex, even if it's negative. You want to know that they haven't forgot about you.
It's a difficult impulse to resist, but to accomplish your ultimate goal of getting back together you'll need to control your need to seek out contact, especially through text messaging.
