    What Are You Afraid Of?

    For some reason, almost no one I know (especially family) wants to tell me anything. About me. I'm a great listener & secret keeper so they freely give me sordid unsolicited personal details. But when it comes to me, it's like they're walking on eggshells. They're also...

    Big Time

    I can usually see it before everyone ... if it's right in front of my eyes. However most things occur away from me. Gossip and the grapevine have way far out (I think) and I get to be the last to know.   I'd like to think they save the best for last ... but I know that's...

    ...If you have something to tell me do it straight up and honestly. Don't wait for someone else to tell me because it makes it so much worse.

    Somehow Always Am

    I think maybe because I don't act interested in gossip so people don't bother to tell me anything.  Then when I do hear about it, I'm like, "What"!??? Not being a gossip monger has it's privileges, like being told secrets, but it sure does s uck not hearing about...

    Self-Inflicted Misery

    Hope...It is a blessing, and a curse.I do hate being the last to know, but I am starting to see that I bring these things on myself. When I believe in something, I have this hope that nothing can kill. This determination that everything will be okay eventually. But that's not...

    Sometimes, I just completely miss out on things. And then someone speaks about something and I have absolutely no idea what they're talking about. And then they explain it to me and say "Didn't you know that?" I hate that..

    I Am a Know It All

    I am not one of those know it alls that think they know everything, I am the kind that likes to know what's going on.  I don't like being out of the loop with my friends, so when someone says, oh yeah did you hear this about so-and-so and I haven't heard, I fell left out.

    No Matter How Much I May Hate It...

    I still am always the last to know.  At least, that is how it feels.  Especially at work, where I feel there may be a conspiracy to withhold information from me.  The communication is so dysfunctional there that maybe I don't want to know!
