I’m incredibly awkward

I’m uncomfortable a lot.

I give a lot of one-word answers when I’m not comfortable.

I’m not good at small talk.

I’m bad at letting people know when a conversation is over.

I’m not good at reading people’s emotions.  I might be slightly autistic.

I have trouble finding the right words.

Sometimes I st-st-stutter.  I trip over my tongue.

I’m not friendly.  Not because I don’t like someone.   I’m not sure what’s appropriate, so I err on the side of caution.

I get wrapped up in my own thoughts.  I don’t like being interrupted.  I get annoyed.

I don’t like talking to strangers.  It’s stressful.  It’s uncomfortable.

If you hi to me on the street and I don’t recognize you you’ll probably get a strange reaction.  Don’t take it personally.

I’m just incredibly awkward.

I hate my job

I hate talking on the phone.  I’ve been doing professionally for twelve years.

I’m an extreme introvert.  Talking to strangers on the phone all day is DRAINING.

I’m shy.  I avoid talking to strangers.

I’m incredibly awkward.  I’m no good at small talk.  Sometimes it’s hard to end conversations.

I’m sensitive.  I talk to angry people.  They take it out on me.  I take it personally.

My job doesn’t leave me energy to do what I want to do.

I’m afraid to quit.  Talking on the phone is my only real professional experience.  I hate it, but I need to pay rent, bills, etc.

I’m not sure how much longer I can take it.
