You need to have this one simple rule in every relationship you have.

Note that when I say “relationships”, I mean any relationships, whether it’s romantic, friendly, or otherwise.

It’s a fairly simple rule, and one that shouldn’t be too big of a deal for anyone to agree to.  But it’s vital.

Ready?

If anyone starts getting upset in text or e-mail, stop immediately and switch to voice or face to face.

It’s simple. It’s also super important.
