I’m learning to be more private about my current life after a few backstabbing incidents in the past, I have become very selective about the information I share with others. I am incredibly private, to the point where not even all my friends know all that much about me. Choosy na po ako kung sino yong pagkakatiwalaan ko talaga. I am more of the listener than a messenger or talker.I like to leave a trail of false breadcrumbs so that I don’t have to deal with people prying into my history. I’m not obligated to provide information to service their curiosity. I’m naturally very private and don’t welcome personal questions, or volunteer such information. I am the master of vague when it comes to things like that.
I guess I’m rather private not just because I fear of backstabbing or whatsoever; I’m simply not used to sharing personal matters. I won’t start talking freely about myself or talk about someone else’s life, I need to be asked specific questions and even then if the person enquiring isn’t someone close, I wouldn’t answer.
People often think I’m intentionally secretive, but a part of it is natural and instinctive. The other part is, I often don’t go into detail about anything personal because I’m not interested in anyone’s personal information. I don’t care, so I don’t ask. I assume no one cares, so I don’t divulge. In addition, I don’t like people to tell me about other people’s business, especially when it’s too personal. To sum it up, I hate gossip people and I don’t like people invading my privacy as well.
