“Why don’t you speak up?” They ask.
“You’re so quiet!” They say.
Sometimes people just don’t understand. What do I need to be talking all the time for? I am not being rude or unfavourable. I can only define this as being okay in the space that I am still growing to accept- even when it feels like it is a sin to be so quiet.
If it doesn’t make any sense to you, it makes sense to me. I have being battling with this for as long as I can imagine. I say battling like it is a condition, but it is clearly not.
I just don’t feel as if I have anything relevant to say. And when I do speak I get the uncomfortable silence or the strange look, lol. Trust has to be formed to even open up to anybody. That is what is important to me. I cannot just delve all my heart out to ears that only hear part of my story.
Today’s society favours the lively, outgoing person who is the life and soul of every event that they attend. The ones who don’t take that long to warm up to anything, they just dive into the deep end straight away.
Just because I do not fit the above category it doesn’t mean I cannot pursue an active life. At times, it takes time and effort.
In this world where loudness is seen as the norm, take a leaf out the introvert’s book and be quiet!! 😀
