One of the additional tasks of our office is to conduct "Kamustahan" (knowing the situation and addressing the needs or concerns) and sometimes does counseling to COVID-19 positive patients in the City. Since we cannot do a face-to-face interview, we have to contact them through phone calls. Calling them is already a challenge for me knowing that I have to talk for a couple of minutes to a stranger. Hence, most of my calls are direct to the point.
I did have a conversation with one of the contact tracers last Thursday about a patient's concern. Though I started the convo through messenger chat (since it's the only contact I have, because I intentionally looked for his name in FB 😂 after meeting him personally). Well if it's for the sake of the client/ patient, "kapal ng mukha".
I think Mr. Contact tracer has a lot to explain at that time that's why he asked for my number and suggested to call. (NO, this is not a love story, though that would be great, in case ... hahaha)
After him explaining everything through call, I thanked him for clarifying things and he ended it with "thank you din po ma'am and keep safe po always". (Awww, how sweet).
After that call, it made me realize:
How we end calls would leave an impact on the receiver.
I actually felt better after hearing those words. Telling someone to take care is just a simple phrase since we may not know the impact it gives to the receiver.
Why can't I do such anymore.., Most of the time, when calling COVID-19 patients I usually end the call by thanking them for their time. When I'm in the mood, I usually include "pagaling po sila" which is seldom and kinda forced in such a way.., I think I still talk with respect though, but in terms of sweetness, I'm having a hard time.
I think I'm not like this before. I would often hear my friends say before that I'm too sweet, that my soon-to-be boyfriend would be lucky to have me since I'm a sweet talker. An ex also asked me before, why am I too sweet?
What happened then..? Did I spent all the sweetness on my exes...? Did it left my body as I grew older...? Or it disappeared because it was not being utilized..?
Am I not taking enough sweet foods..? 😂🤣 But I have a sweet tooth.
What to do then..?
