Recently I've been getting invited to Skype calls or have been asked to add people on Skype, so I thought I'd address this in some permanent way. I felt a blog post would be best, that way I can refer to it in the future.
When asked about Skype, unfortunately I have to decline. It's not that I don't like any of you, I promise! I just don't feel comfortable communicating via Skype to people I don't really know. To be honest, I don't actually talk to family & friends on the phone. I'm also ridiculously shy in real life, which I'm sure a lot of people can vouch for. It's probably my anxiety or something, but sadly it just stresses me out.
You may not understand & think it's "dumb" of me to feel this way, but you have to realize that not everyone is wired the same. I simply cannot help it.
I might overcome this awkward feeling in the future, but for now I'd rather just stay a little more sane, & communicate through my normal social networks <3 Please try not to take it personally, it really is just me, not you :)
