    I can get very quiet at times

    when my depression kicks in and my moods start going really up and down. Sometimes things are just easier that way during rough times.

    My body is on autopilot

    while my mind is in overdrive or floating somewhere far away.

    Just like today, I've had no one call

    or text to wish me a happy birthday! Knowing I'm all alone in this word always get me to be quiet😔

    I used to be really outgoing but high school changed that for me. Now I am mostly quite especially around other girls. I'm always awkward or scared I'm going to say something weird.

    I've preferred my quiet personality.

    I'm more of an observer and thinker anyways, and I love that. But there are times I wish I was extroverted like other people. I'm not quiet though because I hate someone. I just don't have anything to talk about or don't feel like talking. I'll listen though :)

    Quiet... I get quiet

    when I have a lot going on. I don't want to burden those around me...so I withdraw and try and figure things out. I sometimes drive out to a special place I found a few years ago...I can sit there for hours...enjoying the quiet... slw

    I'm so quiet that the bus driver has forgotten

    I was on the bus several times, passing my stop. In kindergarten once, I fell asleep on the bus and would've been left there if the driver didn't check!
