We all have bad days. While on some days it is impossible to even get out of bed, on other days we feel drained out and our concentration fluctuates takes a beating. This might make it impossible to focus on work and if you are an overthinker, consider all your time gone in creating scenarios in the head. Be it a fight with a loved one, dealing with personal loss, struggling with anxiety or just having no motivation to move a muscle, it is perfectly fine to feel low. The pandemic has made it worse and has robbed us off the pleasure of meeting our friends and loved ones. Meeting someone has gone digital and virtual hugs have taken over. In such a scenario, here are 10 text messages you can send to someone who is having a bad day and let them know that everything will be fine.
Do you wish to chat or call?
Sometimes people don’t reach out on their own. It is best to assure them that you are just a text away, as they call or message you anytime they feel like.
I am sorry all this is happening. I am here for you always.
If someone you know is going through a tough situation or going through a personal loss, you can let them know that they aren’t alone in it.
Hold on and stay strong. Always know I am here for you. Keeping the hope alive is one of the toughest things to do, when going through low phases. Give your friend the much needed strength and shower them with positivity.
Let me know if I can do anything for you
Always extend a helping hand and ask the person in distress if you can help. This will not only give them the surety that you are with them but might also solve the problem they are facing.
It is okay to have bad days, you will sail through like a pro!
The person must be constantly reminded that it is perfectly fine to have bad days and everyone goes through them. Let them know that they will easily get through this as well.
Talk to me about it and let it all out.
Lend your ear and ask them to let it all out. Sometimes people don't share what they are feeling which might vent up over time and lead to an emotional outburst. It is okay to vent, cry or howl as long as you are letting it all out.
Watch a movie and treat yourself with your favorite food!
Suggest them a movie you like or a feel-good movie which might uplift their mood. Ask them to get their favorite food to eat, as comfort food has the power to reverse any type of bad mood in a jiffy.
Group video call
In times like these, when meeting in person is a bit tricky, one can always resort to video calls. Plan a group video call with the closest friends and make your friend feel loved.
You will figure everything out, give yourself time.
You need not figure everything out within 24 hours. It is okay to give yourself time. Ask your friend to give themselves a break and relax. Everything can be figured out if your mind is calm and relaxed.
You are the strongest one I know, this too shall pass.
Instill this confidence in your friend that he is strong and this phase too shall pass. Such texts might not make his mood happy but will for sure give him the strength to go through the day.
