    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...

    Supo lo que ni siquiera yo queria saber,

    comprendio lo que yo no podia explicar y escucho en silencio lo que mis silencios tenian que decir.

    Trapped

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

    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'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...

    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...

    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...

    It Keeps People Guessing

    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...

    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...

    Yup

    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 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...

    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...
