I have a small aversion to talking on the phone. I can’t remember a time when making phone calls didn’t give me pause. It’s an odd anxiety, and I have no idea where it came from or why it exists. The good news is that it doesn’t stop me from doing the things I need to do. It doesn’t affect me at work. The bad news is that it is the root of some of my rampant procrastination that manifests in my day to day personal life.
I tackled a few calls this morning. I felt myself starting to cry when I had trouble making one of my appointments. Then I felt silly for a little while because of it, before moving on and finishing the things on my list. I feel okay about the things I got done.
Humans are funny creatures.
