    I Don't Like Talking

    I'm pretty bad at making conversations. And I don't like people in general, let alone having to awkwardly pretend like I want to have meaningless conversations with them. I just don't really like speaking in general, which is strange considering I think language is so beautiful...

    It's better not to say anything at all,

    I feel like it would be easier

    for me to express myself by writing things down and having people read it. It would mean I could take time thinking of the right words to "say" rather than respond under pressure. If I were mute, I think people would actually pay more attention to what I say. It's harder to...

    I Used To Be And It Didn't Help Me Any

    I was so quiet and never spoke to anyone much. I kept many painful secrets to myself. sometimes I wish I had but I had to let the truth be heard - if we punish people and children for telling the truth... what are we teaching the world?

    Talking has been the start of many problems in

    my life. Gossip, bullying, misunderstandings. I find myself most of the time wishing I could stop speaking and it not be a big deal. There are people in this world who I like talking to you, my family and a couple close friends. But in all talking has caused me anxiety. In...

    Maybe Life Would Be Easier

    Sometime I think life would be easier if I were mute.  I hate talking to strangers.  Sometimes I hate talking.  I would not have to worry about: making phone calls leaving messages how I don't like the sound of my voice saying something dumb...

    It Feels Nice

    I don't know why. But it feels so good to not talk. I guess when I do talk, I'm always stressed that I'll say something wrong. So it's just really nice to know I can't say something wrong if I don't talk. It's just so gratifying. But I still need to talk sometimes. So I'm just...

    I Wish I Was Mute Too..

    I do. And it's not because I hate talking..I actually love to talk. I have friends and family that I always talk to. But sometimes, or all the time, no one seems to really listen or understand or care. And I can never speak about my feelings without getting emotional or feeling...
