Textmate adding symbols to txt/rtf file

Hey everyone, I know some may have moved on from Textmate, but I'm using the textmate 2 alpha/beta whatever it is and I still like it. Anyways, I went to open a text file and some selection came up and I pressed enter... my mistake. Now when I open a txt or rtf file in text mate, it ads all the coding w/ it to.. here's a snippet:

\f0\b\fs28 \cf0 Description
\fs24 \

\b0 This sample shows how to make the most basic of VoIP applications for making an outgoing call or receiving an incoming call.  You'll need a PHP server for serving up the Capability Tokens and responding to requests from Twilio when calls are received.  \
You'll need to create a Twilio Application in your account, put 
\b Server/auth.php 
\b0 and 
\b Server/basic-call.php
\b0  up on a PHP-capable server, and then point the Twilio Application at 
\b basic-call.php
\b0 's public URL.\
Any idea how to fix it and have it open as normal? I don't know where to look for the setting of who it's interpreting it.
You will forever be remembered Multimedia

That looks perfectly normal if you are opening an RTF file; those are RTF control codes. Are you getting this behavior with all files you open or just a couple of them?
Make life easier if you have a programming question!
