Advice: Dealing With Someone Who Has Text Message Meltdowns

Hello Everyone!

How the hell are you doing this evening!? Now that Super Bowl Sunday is actually tomorrow, do you have plans? I’m heading over to my buddy’s spot to watch the game. He has some other friends that are joining. As I asked in a post prematurely before, who are you rooting for to win?! If you are outside the United States, let me know if you even watch American football?? Now, I’m sharing my son John Collazo’s desire to build his, “Call To Action Marketing” #CTAMarketing brand and get into becoming a marketing expert. I’m sharing his brand logo and profile picture that can be found on his social media platforms down below the advice. I appreciate the help with networking with him on social media. He is very intelligent and logical thinking and will be a future advertising/marketing executive if he keeps it up. John is my marketing manager and will become my future manager. If my book becomes a movie, tv show, play, etc., he will be my manager. John will also be marketing his brother’s video game streaming channel Tswoooh23_ on YouTube. We spoke about him earning his MBA in marketing in the future. Let’s shift gears again and talk about advice. Your New York homie found another question for your reading pleasure on Quora. My kneejerk thought, when I stumbled upon this question, was frustration with the person’s sensitive communication style. It’s frustrating to deal with super sensitive people. It’s a challenge to feel like you have to walk on egg shells around a person. A person tends to be concerned about the person over reacting to a simple conversation. Perhaps letting the person know ahead of time that you are just saying what you feel is necessary ahead of the chat? Are they super sensitive or is the other person just a bully? It is impossible to tell without reading text messages and listening to personal communications. Then again, some people are rather rough around the edges since they had very unforgiving life experiences. This makes it a challenge to communicate with a sensitive person who often cries and has melt downs at the drop of a hat. It is possible that both sides need to tweak their approach in order to make some progress. The question would be how exactly to both toughen and soften up each party in need? Do these two people even need to maintain a relationship? Is the person who is having melt downs in desperate need of therapy to help sort out and manage their emotions? In some situations, melt downs are temper tantrums and a poor way to communicate their dislike for the subject matter. Melt downs can also be a form of manipulation. I am not a fan of people who use melt downs in order to manipulate others. Clear and direct communication is a tall order to request from many people. Without giving away the store, here is the posed question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“How do you deal with someone who has a lot of meltdowns over text message?”

By Veronica Thornton

MY RESPONSE:

“It’s hard to tackle this question without further information. If you are at work, as co-workers, and this co-worker keeps having meltdowns while at work and after responding to their text messages, this person may need to be spoken to by the manager. If this person can’t conduct themselves properly, this person either needs to stop reading texts during work hours or go home every time they disrupt the co-workers. If this situation is a private matter between two parties, you have to ask why is this person having a meltdown? Is this person taking everything that is said super personal? Study the triggers that cause meltdown person the emotional stress? When in a face to face meeting, does the other person always appear to cut the meltdown person down? Does meltdown person have a sense of inferiority? A bad temper? Do they jump to conclusions? When texting, it is hard to gauge the temperature of the message. This can cause a person to take a harmless text to a whole other emotional level. If you are the person texting the meltdown person, you will need to be super clear with your intentions each and every time. You may have to offer way more data in advance of a text conversation than you would normally. You may remind meltdown person that what you are about to say is either how you feel or that you are just joking with this person. You can’t control how another person reacts. You can only work on your end to try to be as clear as possible with your intention of your words. At least you know that what you have to say has a deep impact on the meltdown person. They would not react emotionally if you had no impact whatsoever on their life. Hopefully, you don’t take advantage of meltdown person’s emotions. I wish you better luck in the future with your interactions with the said meltdown person. #ConstructionTales”

Hopefully my advice blog post is helpful today. Let me know if you agree or disagree with my advice? If you hold a different position, why do you believe the way you do? Hopefully, I helped the author with managing another person with a sensitive communication style. Anyways, I’m also sharing my latest (8) podcast episodes that are listed down below from The Verbally Disastrous Podcast, via links for Spotify & YouTube down below. If you are into reading on a Kindle, check out my newest short story release that belongs to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library short story series on Amazon down below. This new short story #11 is entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. The previous short story is #10 is entitled, “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. If anyone has read any of my other previous short stories, by all means, let me know what you think? Check out the links for my book #ConstructionTales down below. Hopefully, I will hang out and do some fun activities with Melissa this weekend. I need to go focus on a little more pimping out my content on social media, some tasks, and then tackle my painting and my children’s audio book. Enjoy your Saturday now that we finished grinding out the work week. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a restful or productive day!

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
