    Isn't That The Truth

    It's been two years since that day I was called in and told that I was last hired and need to be the first to go. Wow! My dream job.  I am pretty sure I was the most sought after faculty member to take a class from.  My evaluations were always complimentary and "not too easy...

    When people start to distance themselves from

    me, then I tend to isolate myself from the world. At some point, not many people would notice my absence and I am starting to feel ok with that.

    I Go Silent When I'm Sad

    Simply because I hide inside my head and think. Or just hide inside my head.

    another moment when I get really sad.

    ..another friend has to stay away to avoid making things complicated between us?????? maybe I should stay away from making male friends....they all say the same things... leaving me behind for they develop their feelings.

    It'S Better This Way

    Trust and believe that if I'm NOT silent when sad, angry, hurt? I will absolutely do irreparable damage with the words that come out of my mouth. So... if I'm being silent... if I'm "ignoring you"... thank your lucky stars and leave me be until I'm not in that state of mind...

    When I'm sad or upset I only want to talk to

    maybe 2 people. It's easier to block people out than explain why you're so weak

    "silence"

    I become silent when i'm sad and i don't talk to much even with my friends.I'm used to it like i want to be alone and resolve whatever problems i have had etc. sometimes being silent helps you think deeply on what are you going to do .It helps me personally and at least i know...

    Drives people crazy when in an arguement,

    or in general when I'm depressed. I want to reply and share my thoughts. But I find myself unwilling to finish my own sentences, let alone start them.

    My Way Of Coping

    I become silent when I am sad or when I am hurt in an emotional way. This has caused a lot of friction in my marriage especially in the years before. The one thing my husband never could stand is the silent treatment. I think it is like that because of my history and old habits...

    Lost Inside Myself

    When im sad and depressed, its as if no amount of joy around me can change it. I'm currently feeling secluded and depressed, and of course I'm quiet. I feel like no one will want to listen to me, or even care to understand if I were to tell them, even then all they do is ask me...

    It is true that when I am silent it

    either means, I don't want to talk or when I'm sad about something. It's actually one of the worse feelings in the world. I don't like this feeling because it frustrates me and more so, it doesn't make me feel better either. Being sad is okay to a small extent but you don't want...

    Hiding

    I think I must have been a cheerful and extrovert child somewhere in my very early childhood. I loved to play everywhere and always. Yet big clouds overshadowed my happiness. My parents were not a match made in heaven. They quarreled a lot. My dad suffered from tuberculosis and...

    No Words

    Sometimes things hurt and you can't find the words to express yourself.  When I am sad, I become quiet.  I just don't speak.  I'm normally a private person but when I am sad you can feel the silence.
