Why It's OK To Be Considered Quiet
The Vital Lounge

For as long I have known, I have always been considered quiet. At first, I took offense to this because it sounded as if something was wrong with me because I didn't have much to say. I was even judged when I was younger because I didn't yell out nonsense during class or didn't try to start up random conversations to complete strangers. However, let's not get it twisted, being quiet does not mean you're shy at all. In fact, there's nothing wrong with being quiet at all.

We quiet people are usually the best people to confront your problems or secrets to, because who is better to vent to than the quiet girl who you know will keep her mouth shut. Tell us what's bothering you or your deepest confessions, because we will be one of the most trustworthy people you meet and a possible good friend in the outcome.

Once you start a conversation with someone who usually keeps to themselves, then they can talk for hours. We love conversing with new people and can hold an interesting conversation with anyone, no matter the topic. So please don't hold back because we want to hear it all, and we're not socially awkward at all.

Compared to more outspoken people, quiet people appear less threatening since we are more approachable in many aspects. However, I'm not saying that all outspoken people are threatening and all quiet people are approachable, I'm just stating a personal opinion. There's is a less sense of judgement when you open up to a quiet person, and we're just not intimidating people at all.

The greatest thing of all about the less spoken is that we think before we speak. So before we blurt out something unintentional to make things go from bad to even worse, we can avoid that whole predicament. Life can be hard enough as it is, so watching what you say is nothing but beneficial.

So next time someone says "You're quiet" or "You should talk more," just know that nothing is wrong with that, and it's actually something to be very proud because it's what makes you, you. You should never have to doubt your traits or preferences, you should embrace them.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
