    Always Silent - I always chose to stay silent

    and to never actually say anything, because I don't like how my voice sounds and when I try to sing I just always sound awful, I even got comments like that about my voice on karaoke sites that I occupy sometimes. They're right, I sound absolutely horrible. I wouldn't even...

    Sad But True

    It's especially terrible for me because i LOVE to sing. I think my speaking voice sounds okay to my own ears, but the second someone plays back a recording of me i want to die in embarrassment. My voice is just so...annoying. It's high-pitched, and slightly whiny and stuffed-up...

    People say it is sexy

    or soothing, but I don't like it. Sounds annoying and whiny to me.

    Sometimes I feel like it sounds like a 13 year

    old boys voice. Also despite not speaking much, when I talk to friends I tend to talk loud a lot.

    Voice.

    A few guys have told me that I have a sexy voice, one of my female teachers said that I sometimes sound like one of those flight attendants, but I think I sound like a child.

    I feel like my voice is

    so monotone and dreary. Especially when I hear my own voice on a video or recording!

    I know it probably isn't that bad but it sounds so weird to me.

    Wow do I hated my voice.

    It's monotone and it is so boring. Plus my teeth aren't perfectly straight so my words don't sound crisp and clear.

    Everytime when somebody takes a video

    or audio while I'm speaking, I sound very annoying and dumb. I don't even wanna hear my own voice in videos anymore, that just makes me frustrated :D

    I hate the sound of my voice soooo much

    especially over the phone. People always say that I talk to low or quiet, but I'm just not a loud person. I really hate when I wanna talk to someone on the phone but then my voice just messes it up. People always say I sound so young. Some like it and some don't. I just hope it...

    Mine is high pitched

    and childish. When I Skype friends I get called a "squirrel" or I sound five years old. It's all in good fun though.

    Growing up, I don't understand

    why people like to mock the way I talk. So, I changed it a bit but people still mock me. One day, finally I got to record my voice & hear it back myself. I was so shocked that I sounded like 6 years old girl. No wonder people kept mock my voice. I hate my voice ever since...

    Uggh...

    It's kind of like when I see a photo of myself. I hate pictures of me because I look at them and say "Really? I actually look like that? Crap." It's the same with my voice. I cringe when I hear recordings of myself, because it just doesn't seem that it's my voice. I mean, I know...

    My voice is pretty deep.

    I've even been called "sir" while on the phone. It doesn't sound all that bad in my head, but when I hear it played back it makes me cringe. I think this is a big part of why I'm so shy and afraid to talk to people, especially people I haven't talked to before.
