    People Always Have to Tell Me I Need to Lower My Voice

    I suffer Tourette's, so if I'm happily excited or agitated & angry, I get loud & hyped up. Anxiety increases this effect. I get into LOTS of trouble with this, too!

    Just Call Me Foghorn

    Recently everyone in a public store turned around and stared at me because I asked my husband to teach me the word "*****" in his language. After I lowered my voice. It started innocently enough. My husband is not from this country and we had a joke going that for every 15 words...

    Being loud is ruining my life. Everytime I turn around someone is telling me to lower my voice. I'm tired of it!!! My friend has two children, because I'm so loud, people take it as I'm yelling at the kids. I was told this weekend that the kids are scared of me. That broke...

    I hate being told I'm too loud.

    I think it's the reason I'm in the friend-zone and it's very depressing that I have to be told to shut up every time I talk too loud. Even when I whisper among people it's a problem and it makes me angry to the verge of tears because even when I try to talk soft I'm talking too...

    I'm Sooo Embarassed..agghh

    Maybe she's not sure if YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THATARECOMINGOUTTAHERMOUF. I don't even know it's happening until someone moves their hands down to let me know to lower the volume.  Maybe it was all the rock n roll concerts we went to or I just get too excited.  I try to be on...

    I guess I'd gotten it before,

    but I never really took in the fact that people don't like the volume at which I talk. Recently my boyfriend told me to keep my voice down in the car (politely) and it stung a little. Then it happened again, when I was really excited about something. It hurt me. And then it...

    The Reason Why I Am Loud..

    most of my family members have hearing problems (its genetic) so they all talk to loud (because they cant hear how loud they are speaking!) and i guess that kinda influenced me and the way i speak now that i am older

    Yep... Apparently I Am Loud.

    Being a larger guy, I already have an "imposing" presence. Then on top of that I naturally talk loud. Whenever I get excited about something an talk about it, I am accused of yelling, or being angry. This has caused a pile of issues over the years, even with my Family...

    Waaaaaaay Too Loud, Man!

    Well, I am just loud.  All the time.  My laugh, my speaking voice, over the phone,  and in person.  I feel I am being rude, like I do not care how loud I sound, because I cannot seem to modulate it!  AAAA!  Is there a technique I could utilize where...

    My Loud Voice Makes Me Seem Obnoxious

    My voice has always "carried" and been perceived as loud. I have been aware of this since I was a child.  I am now in my mid 40s and my loud voice has nearly gotten me fired at work, where I have been seen as "conversation dominating" and obnoxious by others. Help! How can I...

    Far Too Loud

    I'm used to shouting orders over the sound of my drumline. Or being at work and having to yell over music, machines, customers, traffic, and my coworkers. I also tend to have an obnoxious sense of humor that demands high volume. So then i project my voice when i really don't need...

    I'm a 51 year old entrepreneur from the south.

    I come from a family of loud talkers. Unfortunately for me talking loudly has ruined many opportunities to make friendships, have intimate relationship, and it has discouraged potential customers and business associated from doing business with me. The experience has been...
