I'm not loud and I get nervous and shy but I do talk!! I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I can't stand people saying this to me all the time. It makes me dislike them. And it MAKES me self conscious. I was sat in the staff room, I was talking to two guys I was sat next to and joining in with the general conversation where I had something to say. When I went back to work someone said they didn't realise I was working today and I was like... I just saw you in the staff room... and she's like it must be because you're SO quiet. What the ****? And I've been seeing a guy I work with and his friend had thought I'd quit because I've not seen her in a while and he's like saying it's because I'm quiet. So basically I don't talk enough therefore I don't exist. It really makes me sick with myself and with people because... I can't understand. Now I feel really depressed today just because of things like this.
