twentiesgirl86 Posted September 21, 2011 Share Posted September 21, 2011 People have been advising me for a while to talk more, and be more open. Well, I've been remembering lately why I ended up being quiet around people. The same people who told me I need to be more open and talkative. Every time I try to add to the conversation, I get interrupted or people ignore what I am saying. This has been happening for years, so I gave up and started being quiet person after people wouldn't listen, when I mentioned that they were interrupting or ignoring me. This happened to me today, I was trying to add to the conversation because someone asked my opinion and I got interrupted so someone else could add their own input. And then I got angry and interrupted the very same person for interrupting me, and he flipped out on me and told me to get some manners. So how the hell do you be more talkative in conversations if you get ignored, or interrupted, or people don't bother asking your opinions, or if you do add your opinion you get glared at because they didn't want to hear your opinion. And this happens with everyone, my friends, my family, my co-workers Everyone does it to me. And what do you do when you've brought it up to them a number of times that they do this to you, and they don't seem to care. I get a 'oh sorry,' and then it keeps happening again. I think this is why during my 20's I slowly became the quiet person I am now, because I got fed up with it. Yet people get pissy with me for being quiet. I can't win. I get people angry with me for being too quiet, and I get people being rude when I try to talk. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
