I Notice Everything But Dont Say Anything

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,527 People

    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...

    I Play Aloof On TV

    I like to act stupid or like I'm not listening because people tend to put their guards down and show their true colors. I remember everything down to the detail. I never use this filing system during an argument however. You can't let the enemy know you....of his you know. Plus...

    I Really Don'T Know What I Should Do

    My parents have been divorced for a year. My mom was getting money from my dad's disability pay and some up front money so that she wouldn't ask for spousal support. Well, my mom is losing that portion of the money because my younger sister is turning 16. Her boyfriend that she...

    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...

    The rumors at school have all started up again

    Observation.

    I notice everyone making the same mistakes I've made, I understand that these mistakes exist as a lesson and that I can only watch and encourage "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink". I see everyone on their different levels of consciousness and...

    Not my place. I notice everything

    but don't say anything. And why don't I say anything? Because it's not my place to say anything... Why should I say anything? Some things are better left the way they are... Some things are better left unsaid. One of these things - a prime example of the point I am trying to...

    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...

    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...

    I can read ppl based on tone of voice facial expression body movement and all. Now if I could just use my intuition to benefit me at the right time man that would be great

    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'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...

    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.
