I've begun to rethink, regarding the loud tone in which i speak. In serious terms. Perhaps, it's time to lessen my volume.

At MCC, V and Jenny used to demand that i speak softly. Well, the results did show after quite some time. I did tend to speak softly at college and at home.

When i left for Mysuru, these two, obviously, left my side. Thus, nobody was there beside me to restrain me. Nobody has taken their positions. But, i'm often asked to lower my tone.

Now, i guess, i'd better do this job. At the same time, the constant chit-chat continues. It takes quite a lot of effort from me to do this. I hope i succeed, for good. And i hope, this lasts for a long time to come.

me and myself: definately!

I appreciate ur decision please do implement it. I am a person who speaks with high tone even though initial discusssion starts with low pitch during conversation it gets up and I feel u better cultivate this now and it is always better is u speak with low tone. I feel sometimes people will think wrongly that I have hurt them and their sentiments but in reality it is not so my usual pitch is high only those who deal regularly knows.
for u a long way to go and if u can change it is for better all the best

I am also prone to talking loudly. But almost everybody at my in-laws' is loud, so I am the soft-spoken one there!

The other day, my husband and his cousin were just talking to each other. And on the road outside, people were trying to peep in, to see if there was a fight going on! That was really funny! :D

I too talk a loudly sometimes. I have observed that if a teacher talks softly and firmly children pay more attention.
