We say nice things without knowing how to communicate, we buy our children gifts as compensation for our lack of attention, and we make empty commitments, not realizing that the key to successful relationships lies in loving, consistent maintenance. Sometimes it’s because we want to avoid facing and expressing our challenging emotions, who likes to make time to discuss their biggest fears? We all write birthday cards and leave nice comments on our friends pictures on social media.

Using texts to make important decisions or settle disagreements is associated with lower relationship quality from women’s perspective; for men, lower relationship quality seems to be linked with texting too frequently. By writing long, focused emails, we were able to go deeper and access complex thoughts that we would never be able to reach in a text or a short conversation; as a consequence, writing those emails also served as a self-reflexive (and sometimes meditative) practice, allowing us to learn You get to touch, hold, feel and smell that other person’s message, which brings a whole new level of intimacy into your exchanges.

One of the best ways to use my “powers” for good is to remind people how wonderful they are, because I’ve loved writing stories and letters from a very young age. As long as it’s legible, no one cares how neat or messy your handwriting is when you’re writing kind words. It might feel vulnerable, raw, or unnatural to put sentimental thoughts on paper because you may not be used to sharing clear and meaningful messages. Even though a pre-written message can fall flat, one penned in your own hand, your loved one isn’t going to be analyzing what you say.
My goal with a thoughtful note is for the recipient to feel appreciated for who she is, a unique, unrepeatable individual! If your friend is celebrating her 32nd birthday, you should write out 32 things you love about her.
The words begin to flow when we are free from the paralysis of staring at a blank page. Adding your signature to a store-bought card takes more time than writing a letter. It’s worth it when you think of the joy you’ll bring to a loved one.
