Do you hate your own voice?


Of all insecurities that I have (and the list is long), disliking my own voice is a nightmare. Did you have any time in your life that you hated (or hate) your voice and what did you do to improve the situation? The irony is that I am not a singer, not young, but maybe singing (or public speaking) is something that I want to pursue - even though I can only hear how I go from one tonality to another within the same sentence only when my speech is recorded. Margaret Thatcher did not have a pleasant voice as far as I know...

    I think "dark brown voice " means deep and rich. That sounds good to me!

    From the way your describe your voice - you would make a great singer doing songs such as janis joplin and melissa etheridge etc.... talk on or song on - enjoy the fact you can talk :-)

    Don't strive to be in a higher octave - people have a natural preference to listening to lower voices than to higher. For learning foreign languages, men's voices are better than women's - we don't like high pitched sounds!

    That is precisely the horror - I don't mind hearing it the way I hear it, but recorded - it is the actual voice, the way EVERYBODY ELSE hears it. The same goes for a mirror - without a mirror our image of ourselves would be entirely different.
