I'm a bit anti-phone.
Maybe it's because I'm an introvert. Or because I feel more comfortable writing than talking. Whatever the reason, I typically don't enjoy talking on the phone.
I just hung up from a 37-minute phone conversation with a struggling missionary in Cape Town. I'm glad that she felt she could call and vent (I mostly listened), and I hope in some way I was a strength to her. But I got off the phone feeling completely drained.
How can something as silly as talking on the phone be so challenging (and even stressful) for me?!
