I Tend To Talk Too Fast When I Get Very Excited

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,620 People

    A couple years ago, I was talking to my friend

    about a new Pokémon game, and I was really excited. She stopped me and said that I sounded like I was "a Texas person" because I was talking too fast. (To be fair to her, we were both very young, around 7-8).

    Working On It

    When I was a teen I had this one year when I'd get so carried away a couple times I'd somehow end up drooling mid-sentence. I've been learning to slow down ever since.

    I Have Had To Repeat Myself

    I have spoke so fast that someone has just stared and said what while they are looking dumbfounded. I laugh and then repeat it and they answer me. I've been doing it since I was a young kid. I guess some habits are never going to go away.

    When I'm excited or anxious about something,

    or just because. I don't know. I don't keep records on how I feel when I talk fast. I don't even realize that I do talk fast until someone asks me to repeat myself a 3 time when I thought I was clear the first. Apparently, I mumble, or my words mash together into some undetected...
