Are you a private person? Are there things about yourself you don't tell anyone or only tell very close friends? Were you brought up to keep information about income and bills to yourself? What sorts of things did your family not talk about to others or were they very open?
I'm open to a point, with even family.
But there's a lot I keep to myself.
Often my son will say ''Gee Mum I had no idea? you never told me that''!
In life you never show your whole deck of cards...or your hand.
'Why' would you..My parents didn't tell me all that much,so what has happened I do the same.
I like being a private person..
There isn't anyone who knows all my secrets.
I'm a private person in that I keep to myself, and don't tell others how I'm feeling, or what I've been up to. I'm not really all that fussed about keeping the price of things secret though. Everyone has to pay for things. I don't think talking about money and bills is really frowned upon like it used to be.
Yes, jonaj, you wouldn't believe the way 3 'supposed' friends have treated me in the last few years'. Upshot was they only wanted to be friends to 'use' me! If When I became 'unuseful' to them, they dropped me like a 'hot potato' in very nasty ways! So I'm more 'circumspect' & 'cynical' towards 'new' people now.
Thank you & cheers!
