Texting can often lead to misunderstandings and stress, as the lack of nonverbal cues makes it difficult to interpret messages accurately.

For individuals with anxiety, the ambiguity of text messages can exacerbate feelings of worry and negative interpretation.

Which is why the Huffpost says you should avoid texting: “Can we talk?”

Therapists recommend being specific in text messages to avoid unnecessary anxiety triggers and misunderstandings.

So in this case, tell the person your texting exactly what you want to talk about.

Clear communication and avoiding ambiguous messages can help prevent misinterpretations and alleviate anxiety in text-based interactions.
