Communication is key to me. It is a courteousy to inform others of the information as it could be essential to them. I didn't cope with quietness as well in the past, but SO has major impact the last few years.
My psychotic behavior: Back when I was in middle school, mom and dad sent me to live with my cousins for my own safety. One of them was a girl cousin and one year older than me. I disrupted her world of daydreams. I'd probably turned her peaceful years of middle school into pain and broken hearts.
Bottom-line. She was extremely uncommunicative, introverted. If you poke her, she would just look at you, then back to what she was doing. I was a kid away from home, no one to talk to and bored out of my mind. My curiosity took over about what cousin was thinking and feeling about me being there, I took note of where she kept her diary, and I read it. I mainly spotted the pages about me and I could care less about the other stuff.
I learned that she was infatuated for years with the guy that had asked me out. For her seeing him in the hallways during class change time was all she needed to make her happy. For me, he was just a stepping stone. I loved myself and family so much more than the six-month plus or minus middle school crushes or boyfriends. But the point is that, sometimes we cheat the system to find out things that we weren't supposed to know. It either hurt us or help us. She was broken hearted during the time he was courting me, but I never knew until I read her diary. After that, I broke up with him, went out with his friend, and never read her diary again.
For the record, there is no reason for me to go out of my way to dig, unless the behaviors are psychotic which causes suspicion.
Here are Self Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions #95
1) In this example, is it me that behaved psychotically, or is it the other person's extreme that prompted the psychotic behavior?
2) Have you read anyone's diary? Do you regret it?
For this particular time or anytime I’ve read anything considered personal, I have not regretted reading them. I am open enough to stand-up to my convictions and I believe whoever I have relationships with, should be the same way or know that I am that way.
By the way please remember to add me to your circles.Thanks!
