Prompt: Do you communicate differently online than you do in person?:
I don’t feel that I do. While growing up, my mother always said, “You’re never going to know who you are.” 🤔 That really annoyed me. It upset me moreso, though, because the way my life was going, it was completely true. I had no time to be a child, explore hobbies, participate in clubs or groups. I didn’t have the freedom to make mistakes and learn. That’s shit my parents couldn’t deal with because they chose to have 8 kids.
To slide away from the cynical, it wasn’t until I was much much older, that I decided wasted time is too expensive for me. I decided that I’m going to use clearly articulated communication as much as possible.
And, since then, I have. I know what I mean when say something. I am specific to the color of a period at the end of every sentence. Haha my friend recently confirmed my theory with, ” You put the 10 in 100.”
With that being said, I don’t feel I communicate differently. The difference is, I write more online than I talk in my real life. I don’t like people so I keep to myself. Haha!
