So, I’m doing pretty well with things. I was thinking about “sharing” today. And, about friends. See, I do not have lots of friends. I don’t let people in. My absolutely best friend is my hubby.  My mom is also a great friend. Other than those two people, I really don’t have anyone. I’m ok with that – most of the time.  I have chosen this.  I have been burned in the past. I know that doesn’t mean that every person that befriend me will be evil. I understand that. But, it’s made me much more cautious. Surely, that’s understandable.

Anyway. I find that I don’t “share” so much about myself. I am vague.  With my facebook statuses, my tweets, and my general comments. I think I am a stellar listener because of this. Someone asks me how I am, I say, “Pretty good. What about you?”  And I quickly turn the tables.  Again, I don’t think this is necessarily bad.  I don’t feel slighted listening to people talk about themselves. I am fine with that. I don’t regret not sharing my life with them. I’m fine with all of this.

What I DO know, is that my “need” to avoid telling so much, ends up with me being vague.   And, I was thinking about that today, because I wanted to post something on facebook, but I was afraid others would see it, and then what?  I mean, I could care less if I post SOME things, but this was a bit personal. And, it’s not really something to message, because it’s on a group page – an OPEN group of which I am not the administrator.

So, I haven’t said anything – yet.  I am also a bit of a planner – but that’s for another post. I will have to wait. Figure out what I’m going to say. THEN, I will have to figure out how to handle it if anyone actually says something.  No stresses. Just observations.
