PHonoPhobia..?

Standard

Phonephobia. Is that a thing? Well, yes, it is!! Google it for proof.
Sad to admit that I have it..!
For all the (silly) people who thought and still think that I don’t give them enough importantance or I’m least interested in talking with them :- let me explain myself. I know many of you think I’m making lame excuses. But, I’m not! Get this straight- I hate talking over the phone . Period.
I don’t dislike you; I don’t find you boring ; and I am certainly not making lame excuses to avoid you. Trust me!!!

I have no issues with texting: I can text all day with you if you want. I have no issues with talking face-to-face too. What I totally abhor is Phone conversations!!! Ughghgh I hate them so damn much! :/ Iam not “abnormal” as I recently found that this is not very rare. (Thank God 😉 ).
So, why exactly do I dislike (and fear) talking with people on the phone?
1. I become extremely nervous and anxious. Don’t know why.
2. The fact that I can’t see the person’s facial expressions makes it too difficult to carry out a normal conversation.
3. I go blank. I keep searching for something to say..Most of the times all I manage to say is “hmmm” or “exactly”… Henceforth, people think I’m a reallllly good listener. 😉 :p
4. I feel uncomfortable.

Well, that’s my story. My friends are always complaining that I never call them.. They accuse me of being a stingy person. I wish I could make them understand. I just hate telephoning pals!

Do I share this disorder with anyone else? I would LOVE to kniw 🙂

:’) Another Must-read piece

Standard

Someone shared this piece on Facebook.

In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the question:
“What kind of man are you looking for?”

She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye & asking, ‘Do
you really want to know?’
Reluctantly, he said,”Yes.”

She began to expound…

“As a woman in this day & age, I am in a position to
ask a man what can you do for me that I can’t do for myself?
I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any
man…or woman for that matter.
I am in the position to ask, ‘What can you bring to the table?’”

The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money.

She quickly corrected his thought & stated, “I am not referring to money.
I need something more.
I need a man who is striving for excellence in every aspect of life.”
He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, & asked her to explain.
She said, “I need someone who is striving for excellence mentally because I
need conversation & mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple-minded man.

I need someone who is striving for excellence spiritually because I don’t
need to be unequally yoked…believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe
for disaster.

I need a man who is striving for excellence financially because I don’t
need a financial burden.

I need someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a
woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded.

I need someone who has integrity in dealing with relationships. Lies and
game-playing are not my idea of a strong man.

I need a man who is family-oriented. One who can be the leader and
provider to the lives entrusted to him by God.

I need someone whom I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must
respect him.

I cannot be submissive to a man who isn’t taking care of his business. I
have no problem being submissive…he just has to be worthy.

And by the way, I am not looking for him…He will find me. He will
recognize himself in me. He may not be able to explain the connection,
but he will always be drawn to me. God made woman to be a help-mate for
man. I can’t help a man if he can’t help himself.”

When she finished her spill, she looked at him.

He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said,”You are asking a
lot.”

She replied, “I’m worth a lot”.
