I Just Can't Change It

For as long as I can remember I have always been asked why I am so quite. I don't talk very loud and I don't talk very often.
The only time that I don't have a problem talking is when I am either with a very small group, or one on one, with people that I know well. Even then I don't talk that much and never very loud.
I think part of it is that I don't want to draw attention to myself in any setting. Another part of it is that I grew up with a mother and sister that were always shouting. I HATE yelling and when I raise my voice it feels like I am shouting.
I don't think that I will ever talk loud enough so that I don't get asked to repeat myself often. It's just the way that I am.
