    I just go into hiding,

    seek shelter from reality within the confines of my own thoughts. It doesn't matter where I am, I wish myself invisible.

    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...

    Once, when I was at work,  I was really depressed, so sad in my spirit that the moment I had nothing to distract me, tears would start to run down my face. I felt as though I should go home but knew that I was better off being there so I went upstairs to work alone amongst...

    I'm Not Upset, Just Don't Feel Like Talking

    When I hit my quiet moods, everyone always assumes I'm upset, but really, sometimes I just like to think and observe, without speaking or expressing.

    Silence

    Silence is wonderful. those brief moments in life, where nothing needs to be said. sometimes I just don't feel like talking. it's not that I'm not enjoying someones company, just sometimes, I like the silence.

    I Don't Really Want To Talk Sometimes...

    This has been happening a lot lately.   I just don't feel like talking.  I get into these moods sometimes.  I feel that I have nothing to really contribute to a conversation, so I just shut down and I won't talk to anyone.

    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.

    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."

    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???!!!

    Socializing

    Something about SLC makes me feel more like socializing. People aren't that friendly out here, but they're hell of a lot friendlier here than I remember anyone being in Vegas. It's not that I didn't like being around people before because they weren't "nice." I'm not even nice...

    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.
