We'd all feel less weird and alone if everyone were more honest and open about how they feel. That's why we're making it part of our mission to talk about the quiet stuff that still seems a little taboo. Starting right here, in this video.

You might call it 'social anxiety', 'shyness', or just 'too quiet'. Or it might be a sense that you're not good enough, or defective somehow.

But at the heart of it is that deeply painful feeling of believing we're flawed; 'less than' others and not worthy of belonging.

Protecting ourselves by withdrawing, hiding, staying small and silent; we try to avoid any situation in which our flaws might be seen by other people the best we can -we reject ourselves so others can't, missing so many of the good things in life!

Well, what if you knew you don't have to live this way?

We're here to show you that you're not alone and you're not broken; reframing quiet and uncovering the confidence you already have inside of you as a perfectly imperfect person.

Bringing like-minded people together, we're creating a community of understanding and a safe place for you to learn, grow, make friends and practice your social abilities...

First Day of College

Public speaking on the first day of college

I lay in bed, staring at my white and boring bedroom ceiling in an attempt to ignore the alarm on my phone that is growing louder with each passing second. I know as soon as I shift my gaze and turn off that alarm, that I will have to deal with the fact that I […]

Quiet Connections Social Gatherings

What happens when you join a Quiet Connections social gathering?

Social gatherings can seem endlessly daunting, and it can often feel as though the safest option is to gracefully bow out and avoid such situations. I know this because I have done it countless times, and I know I probably will do it at least a few more times in my life. We often feel […]
