    I Was Too Quiet

    When I was a kid, it was very hard for me to speak up. It was made worse by the fact my parents had screaming matches, so I either had to waste my energy getting their attention or just going off to do something on my own. This has led me down a long road of just not speaking my...

    When I was 8, I stopped talking. I became afraid of speaking to adults, and most children. I could hardly talk on the phone, even to my best friend. I unsuccessfully practiced screaming. I couldn't sing. I never voiced my opinion about anything at home until fairly recently. My...

    I Am Too Quiet

    It is so easy for me to speak my mind on this site. When I am in human contact, though, my voice seems so silent that I am drowned out. I have so many things I wish to share but every time I try to say something my voice is over ridden. I am too soft spoken even though what I...

    You've got a heart as loud
