but yes, I gave everyone else the silent treatment.
I often have the problem in real life where I can’t finish a thought or a story out loud because people interrupt, jump to conclusions, or immediately start making jokes out of what I’m saying. That in turns make me excessively self-conscious and I shut down.
You can try to explain to me that’s you’re just kidding or even try to get the rest of the story out of me, but chances are I’ll just shake my head with my mouth closed.
I’d rather be silent than be made fun of.
