You know the issue, you’re waiting for an important call but checking the phone frequently does not encourage people to call you.
The level of desire for something to occur is completely under our control. But how much our feelings towards the action in question influences someone else’s actions is open to debate.
‘Checking the phone frequently does not encourage people to call you’ could also be a statement relating to taking a proactive instead of a passive approach to life. We can ‘gently’ express our interest in receiving the call, bringing with it news about this or that.
Possibly our silence is not perceived by those who ‘should’ be making the call as a polite position of waiting but rather an indifference on our part. Showing our interest, again without being pushy, could move things along to the point of getting the phone to ring.
