losing your voice

I lost my voice for half a day at a company function.When communication takes too much effort, we tend to retreat into ourselves and become isolated.

I learned two things: one, be sparing with your voice (you didn’t need to talk so much anyway), and two, some people are without a voice every day (be more sympathetic).
