Last Friday was my last day at my job.
This is good news and bad news.
Good news: no more annoying phone calls.
Bad news: no income.
More bad news: taking annoying phone calls is the only thing I have any real experience doing.
I want to work for myself. That’s going to be difficult. I have no experience.
I’m going to have to get another job.
Not a phone job, though.
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.
