    I Always Have...

    I've always hated the sound of my voice, since I was a kid and could hear it on voice recordings. To me, it never sounded normal at all, like there is something wrong with it. I remember when I uploaded a YouTube video a few years ago, someone left a comment that read, "You don't...

    Phlegm Noise

    It bugs me so much. The sound of my voice physically no matter what I have in my head, it ends up as a undetermined rambling sound. I never can say stuff right, never a good delivery. Just so bad. What is even worse, in my head I have such a different idea. You know how when they...

    I've always hated the way I sound.

    When I speak I sound like a little kid, it is so irritating and annoying to hear. The sound I produce when I speak is something that would make anyone want to bust through a wall like some LooneyToon character; leaving behind a body imprint. And whenever I get a phone call(If...

    More "shrill" Than "thrill"

    I have always hated the sound of my voice, I even hated to hear myself on my own answer machine! At a prior job as a telephone CSR, I had to listen to some of my phone calls about quality issues. I said to my supervisor, "I hope whoever had to listen to me the first time around...

    Horrid

    I hate my voice, I sound like a man! The only time I kind of like it is when I'm singing. I have been getting a lot of stick because of my accent recently, apparently I can't say care or bear, or anything that rhymes with those!! It never bothered me so much before but a few of...

    I consider myself a confident person as long as it doesn't include answering phones or speaking into a microphone.  Many people tell me I sound like a guy.. but I'm a 23 year old woman.  I know it shouldn't affect me but even when my family tells me this it makes me...

    I Have a Condition...yeah Right...

    I'm a 21 year old male.  I have the voice of a 14 year old girl.  I try to bring it deeper, but it just makes it raspy and quiet, think Marge Simpson.  I have no ability to project my voice what so ever.  I can't ever go to parties because if there's any music...

    I have such an ugly voice

    I Don't Like It

    I think I sound funny. I hate leaving voicemails for people b/c I'm extremely self conscious about how I sound. I can't really describe how I sound, I just know that I don't like it. I'm soft spoken, so when I do have to raise my voice I think I sound strained and stupid. :-

    Not A Hate Just A Dislike

    I really don't like my voice that much because I sound like a little girl. When someone calls that doesn't know me they will always say "May I talk to an adult sweetie?" I just politely tell them I am 20 years old so you are talking to an adult. I don't get mad at people when...

    I never lived in the north for very long. Most of my life I lived around the south.So why do I have a Canadian accent? No one else in my family has it. And most of the time people have to ask me to repeat myself because they say I mumble and talk too quiet. And when I speak up...

    Low Voice?

    For some reason, I've always thought I sounded like a boy. Whenever I hear myself in videos or recordings, I sound like a boy. It makes me want to cry. I don't know if it's that my voice is so low, or I just mumble. Mum tells me that I have a lovely, sophisticated voice. She...

    Surprise!

    I don't know if I can explain how my voice sounds in words. It can go high pitched or really monotone. It's just odd and never sounds right. It's like I've been given the wrong voice! I want a different one please!! But I'm stuck with this one so I guess I'll have to make do...

    I don't really like my voice. Sometimes I think it sounds too deep... When I was in elementary school, I was part of the school chorus and first joined as a soprano. A year later, they moved me to the alto section. I was so sad.

    It's So...ugh

    My voice almost sounds like a guy's.  It's deeper than most girl's voices and is a bit nasily (especially when I sing).  It almost sounds like I'm a chain smoker.  Except I've never smoked anything in my whole life.
