I can't hear me

Silence seems to be a luxury that I can’t afford to have even some of.
I need ear plugs, I have a lot to say but the voices are so loud. Even the ones who care for me don't want to leave me alone just for an hour or two. I need some space.
I normally am a good listener but as long as no one bothers to listen, give me a chance to listen to myself.
I can't count the times that I heard the question "Are you OK" "What is wrong with you" followed by my answer "I am fine" and then get that look as if I am hidding something, well I am not, or may be I am... how can I tell.

    hello nasrina.
    if you want to 'listen to yourself' then i have a proposition that goes exactly in this direction.please have an ear at this audioblog i started with a friend: http://cairotalkingheads.blogspot.com/

    a kind of art project where we offer to be the voice of somebody else. please tell me what you think of that. greetings, gilles

    ok I will write a small word to leave you with your peace, for me to listen to myself I choose always to saty alone for a while by the sea or in front of a large landscape and it helps.
    hope you feel less crouded soon.

    Hechkok,
    I used to sit alone by the sea around sunset time too but that was in summer when I had the luxury of being in the north coast:) (you know people in Cairo are deprived from wonderwful seascapes).
    You know what ... the peaceful spot I am looking for is just inside me and I just need to find it.

    i used to be an extra listener to myself,, many internal dialogues with me
    ,,thatis my nature being abit not sociable..
    when i first joined the university,i was like shocked and lost into the crowd,everybody is talkin so much of everything all the time ,omg, i thought i shall change ,
    tried to imitate and be one of the crowd,couldnot cope with it, but soon i was back to myself .
    may be abit lonely at times but always enjoying areal peace of mind and some meditation actually much meditaion, but im happy with that.
    ahmad
