I'm Mentally Giving You The Finger

Lately I've been getting a lot of flack for not spilling the beans on everything that's going on with my life.

A lot.

The fact that I don't want to gossip about certain people gets me called mean. The small, simple events that happen with pregnancy that I leave out of conversations gets me the cold shoulder and a smart ass attitude.

And it's bugging the crap out of me.

I feel like I should apologize that I don't want to tell secrets like I use to or that I should beg for forgiveness because I want to keep private stuff private.

But that stubborn part of me just rolls my eyes and fights the urge to give everyone the finger.

It's a stupid to feel like you have to please everyone around you. Sure, I want everyone around me happy (and healthy) but does knowing about every tidbit in my life really equal happiness?

I try to ignore it. I try to get on with my life but apparently I'm not thinking things through as I should be and calling up everyone on my speed dial the second Roo does something cute. Or if my hubby sells a truck or if I have belly aches.

Is it really important to know so much about one person?

Maybe I should be flattered instead?

Or maybe I should just suck it up and ignore everyone who bitches and moans and give them the mental finger instead?

I agree!! Mental finger!!
Who's to say they wouldn't be complaining if you were sharing everything? but maybe that's just how my life goes?
