People are often put off guard with the intellectual tone in my voice as I have grown. I now am trying to mimic other people’s vocal tones instead of straying too far from the pack with this regard
Stupid thread, sorry
Not stupid at all! Self-image is something we all struggle with! Keep sharing, sir.
I’m aloof now. It wasn’t always like this. I used to be shy. How did it happen?!
It could be just a phase. I would say do what come naturally, as long as it isn’t pathological.
It all used to be so easy… conversations and feeling like I fit in somewhere…
It’s not that way any more.
I have to find a different way to not scare people.
Same here only I not sure if I scare people, but just make them uneasy. I’m kind of small, so I don’t think I am scary, but I have seen the looks exchanged sometimes when I talk. It is so hard to sound “normal”
