Naturally Loud Women

naturally loud women

The above linked article tells about the struggles that naturally loud women have.  Yes, I am one of these women, but I didn’t realize it until I was an adult.  I mentioned to a coworker that I was one of the quieter ones in my extended family.  The response was a stunned “Oh.My.God.”  I have had coworkers hide from me.  I have had people tell me that I intimidate them.  I have been told that I come across as harsh and blunt.  I don’t mean to.  It’s just how I am.

On the other hand, I have been told that I always have a story and I can usually get people laughing.  Fortunately, or unfortunately, my stories are usually very true, and poking fun at myself.  But at full volume.

My car karoke and bar sing alongs are also loud.   I only sing one way – loud and off key.

Here’s to naturally loud women!
