    I'm quiet because I'm listening, and would rather not say what's really going threw my mind... or because I tend to space out, and have no idea what others are talking about.

    I can get very quiet at times when my depression kicks in and my moods start going really up and down. Sometimes things are just easier that way during rough times.

    People assume that because I'm quiet that I'm a prude. I absolutely love their expressions when they get to know me and learn that I am by no means, a prude. Priceless.
