My Brother called me the other day to tell me he was engaged... to a woman... I am not too fond of. But hey... she's not my fiance. It led me to the question of how much am I willing to put aside? And I found the answer to be: not much.
In general... I don't like going to weddings. I was taught... if I don't have anything nice to say... not to say it at all. So... that's generally why I don't speak to many people. Not that I am thinking mean thoughts however, it's not my job to engage you in idle conversation. It's not my style. This is exactly how his fiance is... just... making up sh*t...(woops) to say to fill the silence... ugh...
Anywho - I say all this to say - how much of yourself do you think you need to put aside for others happiness? And is there a way... to seem more involved then you really are without looking like you don't care, because you didn't want to be there anyway?
*sigh*... please help me... or find me an annoyance management group to join.
