I've been having this issue where I feel like the majority of people in my life are too nosy and controlling.
I'm in my late twenties now, and was previously unemployed for a long period. During this period, I managed to spend a lot of time with friends and had lots of communication with family. I was always around, not always because I wanted to be, but because I simply had nothing else better to do. All the while, I was always being "motivated" to do more, and get out there, etc etc.
As of now, I've been working a new job for a few months, and have been spending much more time on some of my hobbies. Because of this, I am not around nearly as much as I used to be and now everyone is starting to get up my ass about it.
I've always been a private person, and not having constantly updated everyone on my every action has people assuming some pretty weird shit.
My parents have just assumed that I'm now a shut-in, completely alone, shuttering in the corner with a blanket on. For no reason.
My friends think I'm hiding away in some new video game I've found, but won't tell anyone of so they can't play either. I'm not.
I have no idea where half of this shit even comes from. I finally start getting my life back together and everyone assumes I'm up to something shifty. I feel like I'm supposed to be "at the bottom" to these people, always available for whenever it suits them. The minute I'm not, they all seem to flip their shit.
What do you do with people like this?
