Blog challenge day 18


Friday, January 03, 2014

Day 18. One word that least describes me. Elaborate.

uummmm....the opposite of yesterday.....social. I shy away from group situations. I can carry on a conversation one on one, but in a large group, rarely talk. I listen, but don't join in on the conversation.
In fact, with this healthy lifestyle change, only one person, except for my husband knows and she only knows because my husband told her.
The same with my illness, the only people who know are the people my husband told.... and of course, my spark people friends know.
I'm grateful to have this outlet for my feelings and to complain. Thanks for listening!

    You could be describing me. In groups I listen more than I talk but one on one is usually quite different. Spark people is a very good outlet for both of us. I feel like I have opened up here more than I ever have in person. Keep up the good work. emoticon (My sister's name is Jackie and I have a daughter-in-law Jacki.)

    I think it is fine to be less social...the world needs better listeners! I didn't know about your health issues. Hope it is nothing serious!

    Opening up is difficult . I used to feel the same way - yep me ! I am sorry that your ill and do hope that your on the mend . But at the same time its imperative that we stick together and make our way through difficult situations together ! Hugs Karen

    Glad you are still doing the challenge.

I agree, Spark is a good place to go to share your feelings.

    Your welcome..thats what we are here for..
I never used to speak in a group some years ago however I made an intentional choice to join in even if I didn't say much....
I now have quite a bit to say in groups although I don't do many of them....
Like you...I prefer to do one on one ....
It makes my job easier meeting one person at a time than a group....
