By doing this in a journal and not communicating your feelings directly to your partner you’re setting a precedent that their behaviour is okay. Of course they’ll do it again. By being silent you are essentially saying “I don’t mind when you suddenly go AWOL on me, keep doing it.”

This is terrible advice. We need to be clear on setting our boundaries, our needs and expectations in our relationships. If you’re not, then you can’t expect change and you can’t get upset when someone treats you like you aren’t even worthy of a 5-second text response.
