I’m in the process of accepting that writing is the best way for me to communicate, even though calls and visits are the normal social standards. In my emails and notes, I feel in control of what I’m saying, v. in social situations or on the phone, I often don’t. I find that my nervous feelings, and people’s impressions of my nervousness, make things too awkward for me to feel comfortable or understood. This has always been true for me, but I’ve never recognized it as fully until now. More later.
Writing works better for me . . .
