Text Fighting

May 13, 2015

You are mad. Really mad. And frustrated, confused, & distracted.

You can't believe that he/she has picked a fight right now.

Doesn't he/she realize it's the night before you need to compete?

The text messages keep rolling in. Back and forth. It's ugly.

It's text fighting.

Text fighting is more common than you think. 

Ask an athlete if he/she has been in a text fight lately.  He/she has.

Here's a way out: Call/Skype/FaceTime the person.

Texting is NOT talking!

It's amazing how face to face verbal communication will resolve conflicts better and faster than texting. 

Stop text fighting. Start talking.
