Sometimes I Don’t Feel Like Talking

I’m not much of a talker. I have a hard time getting my feelings out verbally. Even in writing, it usually takes a lot for me to just dump it all out.

I’m usually so deep in it I can’t talk about out. I haven’t figured out my feelings myself yet, so I don’t really want to share them with someone else.

It drives my boyfriend nuts because when we fight, I shut down. And when we fight, he talks nonstop and drives me nuts.

I also feel like this makes me lack a lot in the friend department. I don’t text people a lot because I just don’t have anything to say. Or maybe I have too much to say. I just don’t know how to get it out.

A lot of my anxiety also stems from over sharing. I don’t want to vent to the wrong person, don’t want to share too much after a glass of wine. It’s something I struggled with in college and sticks with me to this day.

Sometimes I just don’t feel like talking. But when I do, I hope someone will listen.

  1. I know exactly how you feel, Rosie. It’s hard for me to communicate with other people, too. Yet it is important to for the sake of our relationships so I try to get better at expressing myself.

  2. I don’t think you’re wrong at all in not oversharing, choosing the right people to open up to is really important. In todays social-media look-at-me world everyone shares every single emotion with everyone. It’s all about attention-seeking. The key is finding someone who cares and who listens, not easy but when you find them don;t ever let them go.

  3. Gosh, I so agree.. I’m quite an introvert person but when I’m around people I sometimes feel as if I have to overshare (you kind of feel pressured at times).. So I’m either really quiet or end up sharing too much. I need to work on this 😖

  4. I’m the same way and so is my daughter. She will hardly talk to anyone, except for me and my wife. She will go days without saying anything, but then she will do this thing that we like to call her information download. She will come in to our TV room, tell us everything she has been thinking about for the last few days, and then go back upstairs to her room. It takes everything out of us to listen to everything she says because it is so much.
