    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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
