You are not alone in this. I have always felt like that…always spoken over and never listened to unless I raise my voice above everyone else and then they look at me as if I’m an alien lol I can’t win. I’ve never been able to do small chat when I talk it’s something factual or meaningful. You will see me standing alone in the school playground most of the time nodding or smiling to other mums or if I am included in a group with conversation I feel I have nothing to contribute or can’t get a word in or if I try to contribute I’m spoken over or brushed to the side. It used to effect me, now I just smile to myself when I see some of the self righteous fake mums having their meaningless conversations and I’m pleased I’m not part of it as I know my worth and it’s better to be a caring genuine person than a fake social butterfly that no one can depend upon.
So you enjoy being you and don’t let the loud self obsessed fakes of this world get you.
