this week's topic...

I totally struggled with this topic! luckily I messed up the scheduling of my post and now get to re-write it!

so my top secret secret is that I have no idea how to react to other people's feelings.

now, I wouldn't consider myself a heartless bitch or anything but sometimes I might come off as one! when people cry in front of me I often stand there awkwardly questioning whether or not I need to hug them (also, hugs. not my thing. that's another story).

I have no idea why I am like this, I was loved plenty as a child but for some reason feelings and emotions are just not my thing!

funny story. second year university group of girls who've hung out together since first year was kind of separating from each other so a few of them called a group meeting in one of their rooms so we could all sit around and discuss our feelings.
nope, not kidding.

wanna know what I did? stared out the window trying to determine if I could safely jump.

when it was my turn to tell them how I felt I told them it was the most ridiculous thing in the world to sit in a room crying because 2 people when to breakfast without the rest of the group.

tell me what your secret is and link up below!

I would have definitely felt uncomfortable in that situation too. I would not want to be a part of something like that! :)

You're not alone. Especially when people you don't really know make a situation uncomfortable because it's like "do you want me to hug you, punch you, or just run away screaming?"

I'm not that big of a 'hugger' (unless I'm on dat juice, boooyyy) so I do a lot of weird half pat on the back lean away things. Haha.

Also, I kind of love seeing awkward moments play out. I probably come off as a really bad person, but seriously, watching someone walk into a fart and freak out is hilarious. It just is.

I almost turn my brain off when people start crying. I don't know WHAT to do. I rarely ever cry, so I freak out when people do. It's so hard to explain! I just kinda stare at them. And say something stupid like, "There, there."

OMG! I would have probably WANTED to say something like that, but I'm not sure if I would have had the guts!! Yay you!

Lin said...

Dude, I'm totally the same way! A friend came over this weekend & shared some pretty upsetting news she'd just found out and I was like, damn that, what movie do you want to watch?

I know it seemed completely heartless of me but I'm not good with these situations. Talk about awkward.
