I Speak Softly

    Speak Up.

    I'm glad I'm speak softly. There is no need to be loud. When I have something to say, I'll come to you. If I have to give a speech, I gather the team around me. I hate hearing people argue loudly and irrationally. Who likes an obnoxious loud ******* when you're trying to have...

    I have never liked speaking loudly,

    and I do not like the sound of my voice. I think it is because I am very shy & bashful. I am a very quiet person, and many times I am afraid to speak to other people. I also hate loud noises; I like peace & quiet. I do not find any reason to be loud. I only speak to people...

    It Can Be Frustrating

    Because I have a naturally understated speaking voice, I get frustrated many times when I perceive that people are simply not listening to what I'm saying. I start second-guessing myself: Is it what I'm saying or how I'm saying it that's not conveying what I mean? I'm 6'2" and...

    If I Stopped Talking, No One Would Notice.

    Nothing I say matters, nothing I say is important. No one hears me, or values my opinions, because they are worthless. So why should I talk when everything that comes out of my mouth is rubbish?

    It's Not That I Can't Speak

    People wonder why I'm not always a huge participant in conversations. In class, parties, movies, anywhere out they always ask me. It's not that I can't speak. I'm not afraid to. I just don't always have something to contribute to the conversation. I don't need to speak just for...

    I Sound Like A Disney Princess

    I have always been told I speak quietly and I have always thought that maybe everyone else just yells.  I don't feel like a quiet speaker but people keep on telling me that I am so I guess I must be.  When I get told to speak up and try I do feel...

    Still a Goal

    This is yet to be an experience, it is still a goal. I tend to raise my voice unnecessarily when I get frustrated which is more often than I should. Even in normal conversation, I tend to get loud for no apparent reason. I am working on modulating my voice and keeping an...

    Inaudible Whispers

    I enjoy speaking softly. I think speaking softly can create a calming atmosphere. I often find that when people start to discuss matters loudly, the situation tends to escalate into a full scale shouting match comprising of unintelligible arguments. I don't mind discussion...
