How do you "get rid of" some of the values being passed between steps? [SOLVED - "Nothing" Action]

I was trying to make an ETA shortcut that I could send to members of my family selectively. I ended up using a manual list of phone numbers (names + searching contacts was dog slow)

Here’s a screenshot:

But the issue is the selected phone number say “+1 (123) 456-7890” gets passed in as a filename, “+1 (123) 456-7890.txt” and attached to the message?!?!?

Is there some way to get rid of that value so the “Send Message” step would just send the message itself…?

The “Nothing” action will prevent anything from getting passed to the next action in the shortcut.
