“One of the risks of being quiet is that the other people can fill your silence with their own interpretation: You’re bored. You’re depressed. You’re shy. You’re stuck up. You’re judgemental. When others can’t read us, they write their own story—not always one we choose or that’s true to who we are.”

— Sophia Dembling’s The Introvert’s Way (via sethee)

“I am forced to consume my own happiness, tears, and everything in private.”

— Friedrich Nietzsche, from Selected Letters
