I Always Say Stupid Things

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,477 People

    A majority of the time it's

    when I'm with anyone attractive. I get really nervous, intimidated and either babble complete nonsense or don't say a word. Otherwise, it's when I'm extremely tired or stressed.

    I do say stupid things

    and I have lost friends because of the things I have said. But on top of that I ask stupid questions.

    I tend to not think before I speak

    and I ask the most random questions sometimes :) If people think I'm stupid then so be it, I'm just a curious soul.

    and the teacher asked for a date before the civil war for this timeline assignment we were doing, and I got confused and said "1900's" and everyone laughed. I think they laughed because they thought I was just being funny, but it actually took me a minute to realize the civil...

    I Say The Dumbest Things!

    Really, I do. It's always in situations in which I feel uncomfortable in, such as when I have a meeting with my supervisor, or if I am trying to speak my mind. First, I get extremely nervous and anxious: heart racing, face flushed, hands shaking, etc- then I usually respond...

    Always

    Sometimes, just whatever I'm thinking at the time flies out of my mouth. No filter, no matter how offensive, awkward, or flat-out weird. I remember one time Especially early in the morning. Talking on the internet helps with that quite a bit, gives me time to reread what I typed...

    I have serious diarrhea of the mouth.

    Stupid **** just flies out of my mouth and I can't stop it. There's no way to tell when it's coming just suddenly [BLECK!] it's uncontrollable. Is that a condition? Just [BLECK!]

    It's because I don't think

    before I say stuff a lot of the time. Some times I say things then I realize it was something bad, but it's too late to take it back it's already out there and it's already been said. Even a sorry won't fix it sometimes.

    When I'm talking with someone

    and I don't have nothing to say and/or there has been a long silence I feel nervous and pressured to say something, so I say something without thinking much about it, and it makes me seem stupid.
