Running out of words

Share this post

Do you ever just run out of words? It’s not that your brain stops, you just don’t want to speak. That’s me. I’ll be chatting away with friends having a really good time and then BAM. I’m out of words. I can listen and appreciate your words, just don’t make me talk. I’m good.

I think it’s an often misunderstood thing, the personality of an outgoing introvert. I love my girlfriends and often get rather hyper around them. When my friend Paige visited me one time, we were both so excited, I knocked the handle off the kitchen faucet within the first 10 minutes of her visit. It didn’t go back on either. So energy is not my issue, I have plenty of it.

I just have a limited number of words each day, and the only way to get more is to be alone. I’m like a rechargable battery. My husband has grown accustomed to his often silent wife…until morning, when I’m raring to chat.

This quote says it all.

  1. Yep, sounds very familiar… Sorry, that’s me done. I’ll just be going on Stand-By mode now, please do go ahead and keep talking.
    I feel a bit stupid around people I don’t know well, when that happens, but my friends still hang around so they’ve obviously just gotten used to it by now. But it must be a bit off-putting. One minute I’m Super Engaged and Enthusiastic and then… blank.
    Ah well, the world would be a duller place without us, don’t you think?

    • Michelle, I accidently published this post. How scattered am I? It was going to actually go somewhere, I just hadn’t decided where. I realized it a this morning and just started laughing. Oh the imperfection within! Feel free to finish it if you’d like. I’m sick in bed. 🙂

Tell me what you think...
