I Notice Everything But Dont Say Anything

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,410 People

    The people around me often misconstrue my

    shyness as my ignorance. They think I don't get it. Sometimes some people say hurtful things to get a reaction out of me but I stay tongue- tied. I notice their selfishness and manipulations but I don't say anything. I rather ignore than talk rudely to anyone.

    I notice everything. And by everything,

    I leterally mean everything. I notice when someone stops hitting me up like they used to. I notice when the way someone talks to me starts changing, I notice the little things that people do, I notice when things change, and when it's no longer the same. I notice every single...

    I'm too awake not to notice ,

    see & hear everything around me bt it's kinda hard not to anyway . Most of th time I'd rather just not know , see or hear bt it's all for a reason I guess.. So I play dumb & stay quiet .

    I Just Play Like I'M Dumb, But Yet Have Gained Lots Of Wisdom Over The Years!

    I was in a bad relationship, it involved lying, drugs , cheating, I was controlled , and emotionally and mentally abused! So I take a lot of the things I have learned and I use them to detect and decode what others maybe doing or what their intentions are. So I may pretend as if...

    I'm good at listening to conversations.

    I do it without them noticing. I pretend I'm listening to music and zoning off but I lower the volume to listen. I've heard some pretty interesting things.

    Fly On The Wall

    I am the fly on the wall. My extremities are not transparent and I am not socially incompetent, but I sure am skilled at becoming invisible. Put me in a crowded room; at a party or even in a bar with friends. Where did I go? I sit still, drink, and become a pair of roving green...

    I don't have many friends anymore.

    I still love and care about all my old friends. If I see them at parties or get togethers I usually don't say much just a wave or a smile, maybe I'll throw a, "hey" somewhere in there. They don't understand that I'm happy just being around them and knowing they're okay. They...

    Im The "Quiet One"

    I'm a listener and an observer. People don't usually pay attention to me because I'm quiet but I always pay attention to them whether I want to or not.

    I'm very observant by nature.

    I notice things most people overlook. So many people don't notice others when they need help. Or they do, but chose to ignore them and stick with their click( no pun intended).It's a sad commentary but it's true. Selfishness is in the rise, selflessness is fading. Where do you...

    The Quiet Ones, Are Always The Most Dangerous

    I'm a very quiet, introverted person. Don't get me wrong, I'm friendly and will talk to people, but I mostly just stand in the corner and watch. People sometimes underestimate me; they think that if I don't talk, I don't pay attention. How wrong they are. It's amazing how much...
