    I'm quiet because I like to listen and observe. I like to be respectable and polite. I don't feel comfortable expressing myself by putting attention on myself. I'm very talented when it comes to being quiet. It just comes easy to me. I've come to realize...

    In real life I am a very quiet person.

    It depends on who i'm around though and how comfortable I am with expressing myself around the person or people I'm with.

    I love peace and quiet

    so that I can think sometimes. So many people have to have the radio, TV or music in the background all the time, even when travelling or walking along the street. I don't think we were meant to have our ears assaulted every minute of the day, and some modern stress issues may...

    it may seem like i talk alot in reality

    because i post and answer so much but if ep was something real where people would get together and talk i'd be the person in the corner all by myself probably scrolling through my phone not saying a word and a little nervous because of the crowd

    It's True!!!

    Not online and on this site! LOL! I tend to be "noisy" here, with all of my stories and postings! XD But offline, in a group, I am always known as "the quiet girl in the black". Or sometimes it's shorten to, "the quiet girl". It's not that I am...

    When I wake up, I frown. It's just me and me alone...But when I'm sleep, I'm surrounded and laughing with my friends.When I look twice, they're all in front of me and walking off...Screams turn to wails and I silently fall down...only to figure out I'm all alone again.Now, I...

    Hi. So i'm quiet but others confuse it

    for shyness. I'm not shy, i can talk to whoever the **** i want. i just have no motivation too. Ya know how you really want something yet a part of you can't find the motivation? I want friends to hang out with, call, and meet up after school but i can't just go from quiet to...

    I've always been a quiet person. The one thing teachers told my parents at parent-teacher conferences was that I was such a good student, but so quiet! Some people act like it's a bad thing, but I don't think it is. I prefer listening to people than talking or just silence...

    I Just Felt Like Telling This....

    Sometimes its better to keep things to yourself and stay silent. Somewhere in the silence i guess you'll find things are more intersting in listening.I realised, i've learnt alot in listening rather than talking and understands more. :)I guess a little silences helps..Yet...

    Beyond Quiet

    I am pretty much silent through out my school day. It's been like that since the start of elementary, yet people started to recognize it in second grade (I know, not that far from the start of school). Some people have come up to me and told me they have never heard my voice, and...

    I'm so quiet in school.

    I go to do my work & get out. I don't have time to make friends in school. I go to do my work & be independent you can't rely on people.

    I Wonder If You'D See Me

    Would you notice me, sitting in the corner of the room, my drink sitting on the table, cigarette smoldering in the ashtray- would you see me? I see. I think. I notice things. If you did notice me, what would you think, that bloke, sitting there, alone, quietly contemplating...

    It Never Occurs To Me That Other People Are Quiet As Well

    I am the typical introvert, I say a lot of things about how little I say, I'm not weak, I'm just quiet, I'm just different, I, I , I,, etc.Then every so often I meet someone and I like them and I want to be friends with them, they seem nice, and reserved in a way that I...

    I Spend A Lot Of Time Thinking

    As a child I spent a lot of time by myself, playing in my bedroom, with just my toys, no one to talk to. Because of this, I got used to playing and working quietly. I didn't have a lot of friends when I was a young child, although, I developed more when I got older. And even as I...

    Inside my body there's a personality with every characteristic imaginable, and nobody knows it but me.  I feel like a voice that is never heard, never allowed to escape my body in the form of any social speech or action.  I want to escape, but it is like I'm trapped by walls on...

    Two Different Worlds

    I am quiet, I have always been quiet. I have been described as so many things from shy to absent-minded. As a child my parents, teachers, or classmates would call me these things. But, I never listened to their words because in my mind was a world of my own and I didn't feel...

    People are so annoying with their never ending

    questions. I just want to be left alone, and not be judged. You get judged if you talk too much or too less. I'm not on this Earth to appease you, or to meet your idiotic expectations. I'm not unhappy, sad, lonely, depressed, or angry. I appreciate silence in a world that never...

    Careful With Words

    I've been a pretty quiet person since I was little.  My mother used to yell at me because I didn't talk enough in school, so my teachers would call her out of concern.  In truth I just didn't like talking to the other kids, I always got along better with adults because...
