It’s always the quiet ones: life as an introvert
“It’s always the quiet ones…”. If I had a pair of Louboutins for every time I’ve heard this phrase, I’d be happily drowning in a sea of beautiful high heels. I’ve always been referred to as the ‘quiet one’. Even in my end of High School Leavers’ Book my tutor made a remark about how I was the quiet one (it was something along the lines of “she’s friendly and funny, despite being so quiet”). Being the quiet one comes with so many negative misconceptions
and false judgements. It’s almost as if being quiet is some kind of taboo. Seriously, I’m tired of it and I feel it’s time for the ‘quiet one’ to speak up and put an end to some of those misconceptions.
people judge us this way, just because we’re quiet?
many topics of conversation that deeply interest me. Gosh, I could speak for days about certain topics. I just speak when I wish to. I can be the loudest person in the room if I want to. Some of us just choose not to be. By quietly observing I can learn a lot about the other people in the room…whilst they are just left wondering why I’m so quiet. Remember, the quietest person can have the loudest of minds.
