Be honest. How often do you hide what you are thinking?

    I should say, How often do you hide what you are thinking because you know even the people who love you most will not understand. Not only may they not understand but they may think you are down right nuts?

    ^ Same. I always ask the weird questions nobody thinks to ask.

    I can think myself and others in circles which frustrates the heck out of my husband. So even with him when I get to thinking through something I just shut my mouth.

    I am constantly thinking and talking to myself in my head! If I said everything I thought, everyone would think I was beyond nuts! I wish I had the ability to be more honest though. Sometimes saying what I'm thinking would make life a lot easier!

    I would say 75% of the time I keep things to myself....if I tell hubby something he'll find some way to make it better, do it different, rationalize about it, find out the best way to do whatever it is, weigh the pros and cons, etc. and sometimes -ok, most times-I just don't wanna hear it [​IMG]. Yeah, his way of thinking is nice when I need help, but when I don't, well.........I just don't want to hear it. [​IMG] So yeah, it happens [​IMG]

    Very often. But I find...I don't tend to regret it. I go with my gut. If I don't feel right about saying something, I don't give it a second thought.

    no one really ever knows what I am thinking... if they did..

    1) I would end up in a padded room somewhere
    2) I would end up sitting in a nice comfy chair talking about ink blots
    3) sitting hand cuffed in a police station
