There are so many reasons why a person is quiet. In a world of noise, being quiet is frown upon.

Quiet people been invalidated so many times. They’re low on confidence. They aren’t feeling well or have a physical ailment that makes it hard to speak. They grew up in an environment where silence was self-preservation. They just don’t like the sound of their own voice. They genuinely prefer to be in a listener role. They just don’t always have anything to say at the moment. They — it actually doesn’t even matter what follows here.

Fact is, they’re all valid.

There is such a negative stigma about those who are quiet. People assume I’m quiet or shy because I disengage or not interested in them. However, I’m none of these. Truth is, I’m a listener so I am able to understand. I’m curious about people and need to observe them because I really don’t trust others. I appreciate and notice the smaller things and all the non obvious things. Don’t take it personally — I’m observant and introverted.

See someone that is quiet, don’t make that person feel bad or don’t get offended. That person is observant. Lastly, being quiet is not a bad thing.
