Normalize talking by text messages when someone is overwhelmed and doesn't seem to be able to answer/express themselves

(Talking about people in the same room)

Even better, make sure texts can be answered with single word replies or emoji.

LBT: Sometimes Jalan needs to be silent and we do this. Please and thank you, my ex got super upset about my need to do this for the longest time.

Also it's a hell of a soother if one has a history of being gaslit to literally have a transcript.

@dustyqueersheep legit my partner just told me today "when you have trouble talking just text me instead of getting frustrated by not being able to say the words"

it was the best thing
