Since I’m such an introvert I don’t like when people ask me 100 questions about my life. I’m very private and I feel like I’m being interrogated which leads to me shutting down. I like to tell people things on my own terms.
I have to realize that everyone isn’t like me. Because I don’t like people asking me questions I tend to not do that to them and just let them tell me what they want on there terms.
Now I’m realizing that maybe that makes me look like a selfish bitch. I don’t ask people about anything which can come off as I don’t care which is not the case.
I do care about other people’s lives and I should at least ask one question to get the coversation started and make it so at least they know I give a little bit of a shit about there lives.
But how many questions should be asked before you just let people lead the convo and tell you what they want? I don’t want to seem like I’m trying to pry info out of them because I’m nosey but I don’t want to not ask anything and seem selfish.
It’s like being caught between a rock and a hard place so I’m reaching out to you guys.
How do I find a healthy balance between asking questions to seem like I genuinely care because I do and not asking 1000 questions and seem like I’m just nosey and want to know everyone’s business? Let me know in the comments.
