I Hate Silence

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 52 People

    I Cannot Stand Silence Or Being Alone.

    When i am alone i feel exactly the opposite. I feel like the world is just against me, like people are looking at everything i do everywhere i am. I cannot even shower without closing and locking the door when I'm alone at home. I feel watched, as if there is camera's there or...

    Silence Is For Real.

    I hate silence because it seems like when everything is quiet it is showing who I really am. Like everyone who is around me can tell what emotions i'm feeling and it seems they know everything about me. The silence to me is evil. It represents the most hurtful and heart breaking...

    Silence. Often when we think of it we associate

    it with things such as peace, tranquility, stillness. Yet it is often in moments of silence that we experience some of our most unsettling moments. Moments in which we are forced to face the thoughts and questions that are often buried under the noise of everyday life. Who am I...

    Silence Is Hurtful

    I hate silence because it hurts my mind. I get all the thoughts in the world and every move anywhere , be it tik tok of clock or the sound that the fan makes, or even it its some one shaking his leg, annoys me to no end. It feels as if there is a terrible noise of silence. it...

    Silence is a hungry, empty place.

    It draws it's power from non-existence. It is made of the grief over the loss of a loved one and the stillness between the beats of a heart. Silence, The Silence, is as implacable as the empty void that waits patiently for the stars to burn out and grow cold. It is...

    I can't stand it, at the moment it's deafening.

    I think too much when it's quiet and I get depressed. I feel like crying right now!

    I'm at a friend's house,

    and the neighborhood has had a power outage for hours. I can't stand it! My friend is sleeping, (I don't know how-- probably because I sleep with a fan on) and I'm laying here staring at the ceiling. I've contemplated going outside but it's so cold!

    Absence Of Life

    I hate it. First thing I do when I wake up is to turn on the TV and the radio. Likewise when I come back from work. Not because I care about what's on, but I need the noise. I can't do art without some background music and I can't concentrate when I do chores without something...

    Silence Is Uncomfortable

    I hate silence because it is school. School is an old cemented building that is forever hounded by darkness. School lives in the shadow of grey. Lessons are too quiet sometimes for me to bear. I have to make up excuse to leave, which is not easy. I am always in the sick bay...

    Silence honestly annoys me to no end,

    it makes everything hard to focus on and it drives me insane. There are only a few times that silence is required for me to endure and that's mostly during on campus exams, even then I am fidgety and annoyed that there cant even be some kind of soft background music just to...

    A Man Of Sound - i'm the opposite of my mother,

    Now I Always Have My Ipod On

    I used to be able to walk around my life enjoying the silences. Some of them were happy and full l, some were deep with emotion or wistful with mystery. I loved being one of few with ears uncovered, paying attention to what the world had to say. now, however, I am hurt and lonely...
