Communication Epiphanies of the Last Week

So, I’m not going to post the post I was going to post.

I thought it was pretty good after I wrote it, but on 2nd thoughts. Nope.

I mean it’s not not good, but it’s not the message I want to add to the world.

Silence can be annoying. It can be perturbing, but I find it the preferable alternative.

For years, I blamed a disorder for my lack of speech, my lack of words.

My blog almost further proves it – the long gaps, and the insanely long time it takes for me to reply to comments.

Any foray into social media – tumblr, twitter, blogging – spells out the same story. I’m quiet, and take very long to reply to things addressed to me.

I didn’t know what to think – The people around me usually have a ready word, the bloggers who do share several similarities to me write back within the day.

Then I learned that it seems Fi keeps its feelings to itself and stuff started to make a little sense.

How to Survive a Communication Scare

If you have been around me at all in the last 4 years (since I started talking about it) – you know one thing about me.

IĀ freakkkk out about my words. I am not kidding. Blahdy blahdy blah – I could go on for all sorts of reasons, and why and various things, but mainly this. Words have effect, and I’m terrified my effect will be not good.

(Language – warning!) —

Sometimes, this (in the reverse – someone else’s words back to me) will have a negative effect on me causing me to shut down.

I want to curl up in a cave and never come out and talk to anyone ever again, because I believe that their response indicated that this is what I should do.

Procrastinating – I do it, too!

I’m not usually a procrastinator.

But today I was.

I procrastinate most often when I have calls to make.

I hate making calls! My adrenaline spikes, I get shaky, and hot. I freak out on the phone, and speak at 100 mph. My voicemails are completely unrecognizable as English.

Gru_the_phone_the_phone_šŸ˜ƒ

I have TWO calls to make. And I don’t waannnnnaaaa!!

So, I’m catching up on Season 1 Good Mythical Morning and not doing:

  • deciding where my life will go
  • reading the 7 books I checked out of the library yesterday
  • catching up on World news
  • the dishes!
  • making a call that may (or may be a royal fail) determine my life future (I’m not even kidding on the importance of this call!)
  • writing my friends

Yes, I also procrastinate on writing my friends back. šŸ˜¦ Terrible. I’m so worried about disappointing them, and hurting them. Yes, I realize this is terrible.

But, I did do some pressing research I needed to do while I was watching GMM.

These things will get done. I have to trust that I will get the resources I need to conquer this list. I’ll probably start on them (not the calls!) as soon as I write this post.

And hey, knowing what I procrastinate on, might help me do #1. Decide where I want my life to go. šŸ™‚

Here’s to you workers and fighters of procrastination. Big thumbs up.

And to you who procrastinated – good job for giving yourself some time.

Q&A:

Did you procrastinate today?

How do you get comfortable making calls to total strangers?
