I need a lot of time to myself. Being around people drains my energy. Being alone recharges me. When I don’t get time to myself I get tired, frustrated.
I generally prefer small groups when I am with people. I enjoy being around my family the most.
I don’t like dealing with strangers.
I’m not good at talking. Especially small talk. I’m better at writing. It gives me time to think about what I want to say. I can go back and edit/proofread it.
Talking on the phone is the worst. I lose the benefits of talking to someone in person without gaining any of the benefits of writing.
A lot of the things I enjoy are one-person activities: video games, programming, surfing the intarwebs, reading, model building, drawing, writing, etc.
I need to tell my story. Or at least my side of the story.
I’m a terrible speaker. I forget most of what I want to say.
I’m an introvert. Writing comes more naturally to me. I can put down what I remember. I can add more later. Then I can make it make sense after that.
I’m not trying to accuse anyone of anything.
I’m not trying to “out” anyone.
I don’t want to embarrass anyone.
I don’t want revenge.
I need to be understood. So I’m telling my story.
I avoid naming names. I don’t want to embarrass anyone. I leave out details to avoid that.
Some people’s feelings get hurt anyway. I’m sorry about that.
I’ve made a lot of bad choices in my life. I guess my blog’s no different.
I hope I don’t alienate anyone.
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.
