When I was at school and my SM was at its worst, everyone would call me quiet. They’d all say “Oh, you’re so quiet”, as if it was something I hadn’t realised before. Why everyone had to tell me I don’t know, but after a few years of these daily comments I started to believe that ‘quiet’ was all I was. It really effected me, I just held back even more and hardly expressed myself to anyone. In school I had nothing to say, I felt nothing, I had no interests. How do you even start to show people who you really are when you feel like you’ve forgotten yourself?
Every single person with SM is unique and we all have our own little quirks. We’ve all got different interests, hobbies, talents, likes and dislikes. This October I wanted to bring a bit of positivity back for those with SM and to remind everyone that there is more to your life than just being quiet. Yes, we might be quiet at times but we are so much more than that.
So this October I’m going to try to be brave and will be posting here, on Facebook and on Twitter with all the silly little things about who I am behind the SM (and maybe sharing some embarrassing old photos too). Feel free to join in posting about yourself too and be as creative as you like!
