'Why are you quiet?'

17 comments
 
 
This post is a little shout out for all us quiet girls out there. I know I definitely am one, a lot of people who may not know me that well would describe me as 'quiet' but I think there's a clue in that sentence - they don't know me that well. If I am with those who I am very close to and know well, only then can I really be myself and that isn't quiet. 
 
 I know lots of people hate spending time alone and like to keep busy, but if I get the chance to have some hours on my own, doing what I want to do (usually blogging!) then that's what makes me happy. Being 'quiet' to me could well be about confidence but I haven't quite worked it out just yet. I know my confidence has improved a lot over the years, but personally I think being quiet or loud is all part of your personality. I know that I will never be a loud person, I'm an introvert and I am happy that way. I don't feel that I have to change myself for anyone, but it does make me worry sometimes when people that don't know me well say how quiet I am. Sometimes I'm happy just bobbing along listening in and smiling and sometimes I'll have lots to say and not enough time to say it all. It all depends on what mood I am in but I wish people wouldn't judge others who are quiet. Being quiet doesn't mean you are rude or ignorant, it could be shyness. I continue to improve on my quietness and try to chat to others that I don't know well more, I always smile at everyone and ask them questions to get the ball rolling. I still have a long road ahead of me but all that matters is that I'm confident in myself - which I am.

  2. Wow you really hit the nail on the head with this post! I'm an introvert like you and people find it strange that I don't say much and I enjoy my own company. At the end of the day you can only be yourself and people should accept you for who you are.

  5. This post summed up my thoughts perfectly! I always find it hard to talk in big groups when the conversation simply does not interest me - but people consider 'quiet' as 'boring'! Little do they know that with friends I'm incredibly loud and *weird* haha. Great post, loved the personal aspects:) Lots of love, lauryn x

  6. I was picked on so badly in school for being quiet, people always thought i was upset but i just like to sit back and observe. I relate to you so much. Being a quiet person is a wonderful but misunderstood thing

  7. Couldn't agree with this enough - I sit in my lessons silent because the sound of everybody talking really gets to me, I just feel like shouting 'why is everybody so loud?!?!'

    Thankyou so much for this :) xx

  9. This is a great post and I can relate to it a lot. I am a very quiet person, but I'm trying hard to overcome my shyness around people I don't know very well. I often worry that people think I'm just being rude when really I'm a very shy person xx

  12. I feel exactly the same way! there's nothing wrong with being quiet and sometimes I wish that people didn't judge me for not being loud like everyone else. If everyone was loud and outgoing, life would actually be really dull, because quiet people see things and notice things that the loud, talkative people don't always.

  13. I've always been this way.. I'd prefer to be a quiet person, than a boisterous one. I can still have fun, but not over bearing!
    Close friends that know me, know me, but when around lots of people, even walking through town, I walk with my head low. I just always have.
    I don't feel a need to change and no one should.

  14. I agree with everything you've said in this post. People always mistake me for being rude, but I'm not, and it's so frustrating to think that people are judging you on the amount of time you talk essentially. This is such a great post, so thank you.

  15. I agree with you, i'm the same. When I'm with people that don't know I'm very quiet and shy but when I know more the people, I talk!
    As you I don't like people who judge you because you don't talk enough or don't talk.
    I'm happy to be an introvert and nothing is going to change that!

    Mirisweet! xX
