People were always saying “speak up” but I didn’t want to talk, not even idle conversation. After awhile, a closed mouth becomes a closed mind and you no longer know what it is you didn’t want to talk about. Then, I am depressed. So it goes.
I am similar times mine usually stems from thinking my opinion doesn’t matter and they don’t want to really hear what I say, or they just asked to be nice and don’t really care. Then I focus on how they really don’t care and no one cares and so on and so on.
