    I Never Know What To Say

    I never think what I have to say is important either, so I unintentionally mumble. People can't hear me and ask me to repeat which makes me feel worse. I feel incredibly stupid when someone can't understand me, but it's so hard to speak louder. I hate my voice, I hate my choice...

    It Is Pretty Bad.

    I mumble without realizing it. I stutter through it all too. It isn't fun. I get yelled at a lot for it. And for my slurring. I love to talk, but I kind of suck at speaking clearly. I TRY THOUGH.

    Oops

    I constantly mumble when I think that no one is listening to me to avoid the embarassment of actually talking away and then realizing no one listens or cares. I guess mumbling is a lot safer or what not. People are constantly saying they can't understand me though. Mumbling...
