I Hate My Voice

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 207 People

    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 have such an ugly voice

    that hardly anyone can understand. It's very raspy and nasally. Ordering from a restaurant or just buying a train ticket is hell as I always get a huh? And end up repeating myself several times. My voice is also very monotonous and add into the mix a stammer and things just...

    I've heard it forever.

    "Wow your voice is deep" "You sound like a man" "Are you on steroids " "Why is your voice so deep"??? I am a girl with a voice that resembles a teenage boy's . The older I get the worse it's gotten. I hate doing presentations. I hate talking with other girls because it's a...

    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...

    ::Zips Lips::

    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.

    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...

    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'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...

    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'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...

    I Hate It

    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...

    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...

    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.
