✋👀🔥Maybe they just didn't hear you. Or maybe they heard you just fine and have decided that you're an idiot, not even worth responding to.
Maybe they got your message but are simply too busy to respond. Maybe they're just quietly thinking it over and still haven't decided. Maybe they're so apologetic that they don't know what to say. Maybe they're just having fun leaving you dangling.
Whatever it is, it has been longer than you expected. The silence is deafening. What does it mean?
Maybe you should resend your message. After all, if they didn't hear you, they'll be glad you resent it. But if they're just busy or quietly thinking it over, then your pestering them could turn them against you. And if they think you're an idiot, maybe it's better to let sleeping dogs lie.
Or maybe, if they've decided you're an idiot you should defend yourself. If they're going to be that disrespectful, let them know what you really think.
But again, what if they never got the message in the first place, or they're busy or just thinking it over, or are just feeling bad. If that's the situation, then giving them a piece of your mind will prove that you're an idiot. Lincoln said, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt." That probably applies to responding to silence too.
Better to just wait. They're probably just busy, right? Be patient... Wait... Maybe forever. Wait for people who probably think you're such an idiot that they don't need to respond.
Or just ask them, maybe. Ask them what's up. They won't mind. Unless they think you're a pest. A needy pest over-anxious and supplicating: "Did you get my message? What did you think? I desperately need to know what you think." #narcissistic #narcissisticabuse #narcissisticpersonalitydisorder #narcissisticmom #narcissisticquotes #narcissisticfamily #npd #childabuse #flyingmonkeys #enablingfather #scapegoat #goldenchild #bulling #gaslighting #nocontact #no #malignant #manipulation #recovery #stopviolence #silenttreatment #triangulation #chronicpain #survivor #health #endurance #depression #anxiety #mentalhealthwarrior #adultservivorsofchildabuse
