That's Why I Won't Speak

I have an intense fear of rejection. For me being told to shut up is one of the worst kinds of rejection. Even if it's like I talk and something's on the radio and someone says "SHUSH! I need to hear that" I feel alone and unwanted.
That's why I usually won't talk unless I'm sure I can't disturb anyone or anything.

I wish there were a short way to say, "I really care about what you have to say, and I want to listen to you. You are important to me. But I need to do/pay attention to something else now. Perhaps we could talk later?"

Unfortunately, since there isn't, it can often come out as very rude.

Don't let anyone stop you expressing yourself say what's on your mind if people disagree with your point of view ignore them or argue the point with them. Your view point is just as valid as theirs it's only through dialogue we understand one an other
