    It annoys people to no end, because I go 'what?' all the time when people are talking quietly and I can't hear them. I understand how it's annoying to be asked 'what what?' all the time, but it's also annoying when people talk quietly about things that aren;t even secretcs, or...

    What's Going On?

    I always have to know what's up, and sometimes people get annoyed at me because I'll walk in at the tail end of a conversation and be like, "What happened?"  Then they have to go and repeat the story all over again.  But I hate being out of the loop, in some...

    I Feel...left Out

    I hate it when I feel slightly out of the loop. I feel like I've just blanked out of society for too long. Yes, one could see it as being nosy. But, I like to know the general wisp of what's going on. Not knowing enough can make me feel stupid or like you've been left out.

    Tell Me So I Can Try

    People have the tendency to NOT tell me when things are going on, and if I don't know whats going on I can't exactly fix things can I? You have to know to be able to try.

    But No One Will Tell Me.

    which of course makes me hugely sensitive to the fact that no one tells me anything. which makes me look desperate to know stuff. which makes people not tell me stuff. which exacerbates the cycle. sigh.

    There is nothing I find more frustrating

    and even frightening than being in the dark on something. Especially when someone says they know something and won't tell me. I'm not talking about state secrets or proprietary information. More like people who tease or who are secretive to a fault.

    Always.  I believe that knowledge is power.  I never ignore anything that is said to me.  That doesn't mean I'll do something because I'm told to or follow an opinion that's given.  But, the more I know about what happens around me, the better I feel.  I...

    A Personal Struggle

    I always like to know what's going on. ALWAYS. And I am struggling to change this because it is very unhealthy. Especially since I am in a relationship where I KNOW I am loved and can trust him. I need to sit back and chill and enjoy the journey. I'm also getting better at...

    Unfortunately I Rarely Do. ...

    Unfortunately I rarely do. And people at my church always expect me to know everything about everyone since I happen to be the pastor's daughter..but that doesn't me I know everything, or want to for that matter.

    At All Times.

    It's one of my biggest downfalls. I'm so analytical, as well as suspicious and untrusting. As well as controlling. I hate not being in control of things. I hate not knowing exactly what's going on. Lack of control is a lack of security, and then I'm not on top, and I don't...

    I Can't Stand Not Knowing!

    I know people who are like "Oh don't tell me what happened in that film - I haven't seen it you'll ruin it!" But I just can't help myself - I NEED to know. The other day my mum and I were at the doctors and the doctor offered my mum a chest x-ray (she's been...

    My Family Calls Me "Ears"

    Because according to them, I hear everything that's going on. And that's definitely true. Nobody can hide anything from me, I have to know everything that's going on. I wouldn't go ahead and call it being nosy, but I do like to know what's going on in my family or with my friends...

    Some Call It Nosey...

    But I call it socially aware.  I can not stand being the last one to know things or even to not know something.  To be honest, I have been accused of being nosey but I really don't think I am.  To me, nosey people are people who want to know your business just...

    I Never Know

    People tend to trust me and will take me into their confidence quite quickly. But I am not much one for discussing people so I find that while I might know someone's deepest secrets I lose out on the day to day events in the lives of people around me. It's my own fault, I don't...
