Re: [Chat] "Hello. Who are you?"*- Socialising- the good and the not so good

@stonepixie
All volunteer work is wonderful! So you should be proud of that

Re: [Chat] "Hello. Who are you?"*- Socialising- the good and the not so good

What is the trap in being overly social, if there is one?

 

You can risk giving out too much personal information to a not so nice person.

You might end up having poor time management because of commitments and ALL the people you need to catch up on.

Some people may become sour about how easy you can get on with other people and try and ruin your life.

So basically, you can attract some pretty toxic people, but at the same time you can attract very lovely people as well.


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

@stonepixie That's a pity that they aren't open to hearing/talking more about your volunteer work, especially when there's the chance they could learn something new or challenge the views they hold.

Good point @Lightuptheworld 

 

I reckon a massive trap might be over committment and/ or never really getting a break in relaxing. If you have heaps of committments to freinds or family you dont ever want to let them down if you have OVER BOOKED which is really hard.

 

Maybe even turning into a bit of a gossip?

True, that could definitely be a risk and that could impact trust and stuff in your social circles/friendships, etc if you share too much, especially of personal stuff.

@Lightuptheworld
I hate that perception that people think I'm a gossip only because i have spoken to more people. Sometimes you just can't help it

@EloiseRose - I guess it's not so much about how many people you talk to but about how you communicate with them and knowing when it's acceptable to gossip about things and when to tread cautiously, especially as some people are more sensitive to their life details being share whereas some welcome it.
