No more phone calls

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 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.
