i’m quiet in person as a type of defense mechanism because i’m afraid of what people think of me and i’m afraid of people talking badly about me behind my back and in my head i think that if i don’t talk a lot then people can’t really dislike me because i don’t talk enough to be annoying or say something they don’t like
Maturing is realizing how many things don’t require your comment.

Call a boy a gentleman and watch his shoulders straighten. Call a girl a lady and watch her spirit turn graceful. Humanity was brought into existence by God speaking words into the void of the universe. We tend to become what we are called.
