Having read a few answers already, I have to say both options provide pros and cons. Not an easy choice!
However, I’d have to pick having to live the rest of my life without my voice. I’m someone who gets my foot in my mouth a lot, so I think that would benefit me greatly. Also, I really don’t think I could go the rest of my life not being able to watch my favourite movies or shows, listening to Josh Groban when I have a bath, hearing my boyfriend say “I love you”, or being able to hear my friends. I mean, I’d still be able to communicate with people – I’d still have a blog, and I’ve always loved white boards, so I could make use of those.
If I couldn’t hear anything around me, I probably would feel really lonely. Even if I couldn’t tell someone how I’m feeling verbally, at least I could still listen and hear how they’re feeling. Sometimes I need to learn to shut up, so having no voice would probably make me more attune to the people around me.
