Jonas  remember that when you communicate with other people, they only get what you write and not all the thoughts that are just in your head. So you have to write enough so that others can understand you, just from the words you write. Perhaps it would help if you play a little "game" before you hit send, where you imagine you are a complete stranger who is going to read your communication  try to work out what the stranger will make of your words, bearing in mind he doesn't know all the thoughts you were thinking when you wrote them... (Also, the stranger does not know what you've been doing lately, and if you're looking at a picture of something when you write, the stranger is unable to see that picture...)
