If you get long-winded emails, long letters or long comments from people — you should consider that a good thing, because it shows that they care about what they’re trying to get across to you; which means they actually care about you and what you think of them. If all you ever get from people (ever), is one sentence responses or one word here and there — it shows that they do not really care to communicate with you. This is really true if you stop and think about it. Think about all the communication you have with your friends. Which ones can you honestly say contact you (or respond to you) with any amount of depth or thought? I think if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll be able to count those people on one hand. Value your long-winded friends. If they didn’t care about you or what you think, they wouldn’t spend so much time trying to get stuff across to you.
