Don’t put yourself in a glass bubble that keeps the world out. You’re not only keeping out those you need to be at arms distance, but you’re also keeping out those you need to be close to you right now. Not everyone you know or who’s in your circle of acquaintances or friends, have your best interests in their mind. So be careful who you do let in. You may have more privacy and trust with someone you barely know, than with those who claim to be your friend. Be cautious who you share your secrets with!
Some people will listen to your story and not realize this is information not to be shared! Others may weed their way into your day in an attempt to gather information so they can be the town crier and gain the attention of others. They want to appear to be the person that’s “in the know”, the “go to person” when outsiders are trying to find out what’s really going on behind closed doors.
Of course it’s none of their business and right now, your mental state is raw and on edge. Trying to get into some manageable form of normalcy is difficult because so many people are asking questions and being nosy more than they are being a friend. Well tough noogies for them! If you don’t trust them, don’t share anything with them. Don’t live by their rules. It’s your life.
