    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 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 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. :-

    I work in a law enforcement field (sort of)

    and I have the softest. voice. ever. Can't get taken seriously, because I sound like a shy eight year old. xP Actually considered smoking/intentional vocal cord damage to rough it up a little, but couldn't bring myself to do it.

    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...

    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...

    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'm 23 and I still sound like a teenager.

    I also still look like one, which doesn't help. No one ever takes me seriously.

    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 have such an ugly voice

    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...

    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...

    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.
