We are the most vulnerable during the night when we're alone and all is quiet. It is during these hours that we often hit our lowest points. Why? I think it's because there's more time to think. There's more time for thinking negative thoughts and missing people we shouldn't miss. It is during these hours that we often stop caring about what others think of us and stop caring about our own pride.

The day is over, so who cares? The day is almost over, so I might as well. I might as well cry and let it all out, text certain people, or wish for tomorrow to be different. Despite how bad things get at night, it seems as though everything will be completely normal by the morning. In the morning we will be surrounded by others, and many of our thoughts will be stopped by the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

But you can't pretend that the night before never happened. If you sent someone a message, you can't delete it. Yes, we are vulnerable during the night, and it's healthy to let ourselves feel, but we can't lose control during those hours.

So, here are 11 questions to ask yourself before you text him or her in the middle of the night:

1. Will I regret it tomorrow?

2. What's my motive?

3. Would I text this person if it were 2:00 in the afternoon?

4. How does this person make me feel?

5. Do the pros outweigh the cons?

6. What will we talk about?

7. Will I regret it if I DON'T reach out?

8. What are they most likely up to?

9. Would my friends support this?

10. How will I feel if this person doesn't answer?

11. What do I want to get out of the conversation?
