I Am Always a Bit Quiet

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 929 People

    I've often found that in any group situation,

    you'll find someone who is loud. Someone who is chatty. Someone who seems to take a dislike to any other opinion. Me? I'm the quiet one. I let everybody else express how they feel. I'm the one who'll sit and listen.

        People say I'm quiet as a mouse, but I'm really not. I only talk when someone is saying something interesting. But I'm a good listener. I guess since only being an only child I'm use to not saying much. I'm trying to break out of my shell and talk to people. EP...

    I've always been kept to myself

    since a very young age. I'm naturally shy and quiet. I'm coming outta my shell, I think. Though people still tell me I'm too quiet.

    Quiet

    I am more of a listener than a talker.  Or for the internet more of a reader than a writer.  When I am around people I never really say much, but I am always intune to what others are saying.  It isnt that I do not have much to say, but that I just enjoy listening...

    Am not much of a people person, because for certain reasons I get scared. Not to the point of becoming frantic - just quiet & try to forget about everyone around me. If I'm at a party with friends it's a little less stressful. Little more relaxed.

    I am a very deep thinker

    and I think that can be both a blessing and curse. A blessing because I can better make decisions once I have thought about it thoroughly (though I have made many very stupid decisions when I WASN'T thinking) and a curse because I space out a lot and can seem aloof and cold.
