What did we do before texting? We talked!! We could hear the voice of the person we were talking to on the phone. The tone of voice could tell us if the person was sincere, if they were joking, or various emotions they could be feeling. The tone of voice would set the standard for the communication and how the conversation would go. Texting has no tone of voice, so that is when communications may become difficult. Next time, talk before you text. I guarantee it will decrease your anxiety, improving your communication and relationships.
