"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".
(From the book: The Introvert's Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World
(Remember before you are seen by anyone, you will first be filtered through their state of mind which will drastically alter how you appear to them. A still mind will see the Soul, an active mind will see whatever is held in their mind as being a part of you even if it is not).
