    Awkward silences? Some people feel the need to

    rush in by filling the space and air with mindless chatter or noise for fear of silence. Peace and quiet is good. Do not be afraid of it.

    So I don't. I hardly ever talk.

    I don't talk at school and I don't talk around anybody. I reply to my mum occasionally and talk to my pets but that's it.

    Cause it gets tiring at times.

    And it's not that I don't want to say much, I just choose not to. Blah blah blah.

    Can U Shut Up. That's A Request, Not A Question.

    I hate when I'm in public and people I'm with want to talk to me sometimes, especially when they see I'm quiet. I hate when people talk to me when I'm busy. I hate when people talk to me and I don't feel like talking period. Why can't people take hints/clues/cues???!!!

    Someone can talk to me

    and I will just stare at them, feeling unable to talk, and unwilling, which leads to me be annoyed if they insist on talking to me. I don't even really realise that I'm just staring at them, it's kind of weird.

    Introversion Doesn't Equal Fear

    Sometimes people talk because they're too uncomfortable with silence. Just be clear of your intentions. Don't suppress what doesn't need to be suppressed, and don't speak just because we live in a society that puts so much emphasis on "Living out loud."

    A Conversational Illiterate

    I can claim that title. I have no idea how to have a conversation with anyone. I'm not looking for a lot of advice on how to acquire social skills. Conversation doesn't interest me that much, and it's not something I enjoy. Yes, I can and do manage to struggle through...

    I Can'T Talk Right

    I find myself saying a "hi!" Or "hello" and a how are you, I'm fine. And then the conversation trails off to questions and I'm the only one asking and I seem very inhuman in my speech. In thinking about it now, that might be the reason I only have one friend. People just seem...

    I'm mad at my friend lately.

    I'm really displeased with the way she hates on America. She's been drawing burning flags and puts down everything, and I hate it because I disagree. Idon't want anything to do with that but don't want to seem mean. I just really hate that she does all that.

    It's Not Because I Don't Like You

    At  my core I am a very quiet reserved person. Sometimes I just enjoy the sound of silence. Give me a topic and I usually have an opinion but there are days when I feel reflective and quiet. It's who I am.
