Respecting my Privacy

This is something that bothers me a lot. Is that people really don’t know how to keep their noses out of other people's business. They make it THEIR own business to find out what other people are doing. Whether it's out of the boredness of their own lives or they genuinely have nothing better to do than to sit and watch others and complain that their life is not getting any better.

I’ve always been someone who minds their own business as it gives me peace of mind. Which, unfortunately, has led me to be quite oblivious and ignorant to what is happening around me and have occasionally being told that I'm too selfish. I’ve come to the point in my life where I only accept people who want me in their lives. As I've previously tried to help people only for it to get thrown back at me.

I am someone who subconsciously attracts attention. Even though I am not the loudest of people or someone who enjoys being the centre of attention, I somehow get people drawn to me. What bothers me the most is when people I barely know or people who claim not interested in my life are the ones who are highly inquisitive and want to know every little detail about what I get up to and why I do things the way I do them, then criticise me for doing it. It has come to a point where I have to ignore people’s ruthless questions and their endless judgement as I end up being so anxious. I feel like I have to walk on eggshells and live life to their standard and I hate that. I mentally have to tell myself that I don't owe anyone anything. If I don’t feel like opening up to you, it shouldn’t be taken personally and it really isn’t that deep.
