I Have a Lot to Say, But Rarely Share

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 274 People


    I really do have a lot of opinions and comments that I've had plenty of time to mull over, sitting silently all the time. Frankly there's no one I want to share my thoughts with, don't get me wrong I want to share, but the people around are not the kind who listen. A...

    My Opinions Often Hurt

    Given the life experiences I've had, a lot of people ask me why I don't share more often.  Fact of the matter is, do people even really want to hear what you have to say?  Sure, they may ask you for help and/or guidance, but in the end do your words fall on deaf ears?

    I Am Awkward

    My mind is constantly full of things to say, and in my head they sound excellent. I try to put my thoughts into actual words and sentences but then the thought becomes a jumbled bunch of nonsense that people look at me oddly about. Maybe it's my anxiety, nervousness, lack of...

    I Do But I'll Let You Talk

    I have a lot to say on a variety of topics but I rarely share my thoughts because people are too busy wanting to share theirs.  It's OK.  In the end, I know a lot about them but they know very little about me.  I'm fine with that.  Those that I am really very close to know...

    I don't know; I think it may be lack of self confidence. I think people will think I'm stupid. Sometimes I prefer to just be quiet... Just me I guess. It sucks sometimes

    I Keep The More Interesting Parts Of My Mind To Myself

    I have a lot of interesting things I would LOVE to say and talk about, but I know from experience that keeping my mouth is the better option. Some of the more interesting things I would like to talk about are controversial things. There are some VERY brave souls here who are...

    Great Expectations

    I share a lot here on EP in both stories and blogs.  I am pretty open and don't mind people knowing what's going on in my life.  In face to face relationships with friends, I have people I talk to a lot and will share what's going on with me quite openly too.  Plus a lot of...

    Often it doesn't even cross my mind

    that I could say my thoughts out loud. I'm so used to thinking my opinions don't really matter or that I'm only supposed to speak when someone asks me something. Even on the internet - here for example - it's difficult for me to say anything. I constantly try to comment other...

    Learning to Be Silent

    My reasons for not sharing much with people anymore are different, but just as valid.  I used to share a lot with people.  I would enthusiastically share my stories, my fantasies, my thoughts, all of that.  Until, gradually, I began to notice the bored expressions...

    I Just Think Differently

    Most people who know me would say I'm shy or that I don't share. Which I don't like to give my opinion on matters when other people are the complete opposite of me. I would rather keep out of the conversation or not say much than to have others put down on me because of my...
