Step 327: Sometimes, text before you call
This is a thoughtful thing to do for people who might be expecting bad or serious news. My family got in the habit when Grannybarb was really sick, and every time my phone rang I was terrified that it was a Serious Call.
So when we just wanted to chat, my mom and sisters and would text the other person ahead of time, so we knew that it wasn’t serious and we didn’t have to drop everything to take it/steel ourselves emotionally/get to a place where we could flip out if need be.
This is also just a generally good practice. Phone calls are incredibly anxiety inducing for me, even when I’m not expecting awful news - they’re just intrusive and they always catch me by surprise. I pretty much only accept calls when I know they’re coming; it’s too hard to be in the right headspace without some prep time.
