The funny thing about being a loud talker is that half the time we’re not even aware of it — honestly! We really do think we’re talking at a normal volume, until someone either shushes us or asks why we’re shouting. The worst part about being a loud talker is that the act of whispering is pretty much impossible. Honestly, I’ve given up on trying. What people don’t get is that I really don’t do it on purpose. Trust me, I was born this way. Here are 12 struggles everyone that can’t whisper can totally relate to!

It’s hard for you to grasp why anyone would intentionally want to lower their voice like that. Seriously, who came up with this crazy concept anyway?

You’ve tried and failed. You weren’t born to speak so softly. It’s not natural.

3

You don’t know you’re not whispering until someone points it out

The constant criticism makes you want to just give up all together. Forget it then!

4

You can’t talk about people when they’re around

Your lack of whispering skills pretty much guarantees that they’ll hear you, so you’ve learned to avoid it altogether and communicate with facial expressions.

Please lower your voice the baby is sleeping

Ugh, people with kids are so sensitive.

Somebody shushing you is straight up offensive

I’m officially never talking to you again.

Even if you’re not the only one talking at work, you’re the one who gets blamed

Because you’re the only one they can hear.

If you ARE able to whisper, it’s because you have a sore throat and you can’t actually talk louder

And it still sounds more like a donkey than a whisper.

12

You get excited when you meet other loud-talkers

But the people that have to hear you both aren’t.
