Being secretive and defensive

Announcements Posted on
    • Thread Starter


    For some reason I have always been very secretive. Not even about anything in particular, just in general. Eg. I didn't even tell one of my best friends that I had got a new job and I find it really difficult to talk about myself to people sometimes, even those I am close to. I ask alot of questions in general, I think I do it because it means if I ask people questions, that I don't have to talk about myself.

    Is this normal ? I don't know whether it sounds like a self esteem thing or not? :s I don't really know why I am like this. I am 22, I should be more confident by now.

    I feel the same way. It's normal.
