I have three voices.
One is high. Afraid to be taken too seriously. When angry, that voice becomes more colorful and exaggerated, but nothing too frightening. It always sounds like I'm joking. Most people hear this voice.
Second is muffled. Most of my voice is swallowed out of shame or embarrassment. I use this one with my mother and no one else that I can think of.
third is lower in register and quieter than the others, but more precise. When I use this, people think I am depressed or angry. When I use this, I worry people will notice and talk about it. I worry people will take it too seriously. Not too many people hear this voice. It is my real voice.
