Leave it until you feel ready. Don’t pressure or rush yourself to answer. and if you feel anxious about not replying then respond with: “thank you for your message, at this moment I am unavailable to respond to messages. I will reply as soon as I am available. If this is an urgent, please text or call again” or something like that. Just a script can be edited to your liking 🙂
I like to reply straight away but take too long typing or thinking too much about how to write the text so they can understand what I mean and not misunderstand my way of speaking; sometimes is better to leave it until I feel ready.
