Everyone has the right to his or her own privacy, right? That's why there are privacy settings on Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, and many other websites and companies, to ensure that you are safe and that no one can access your information without your consent. The definition of privacy varies greatly between individuals, which makes it difficult to decipher what kind of information is private to someone. I would like to keep my personal details private, but somehow it becomes known to those I have not told; this is what has been bothering me for over quite some time now, and it still does. No matter what I do, someone will breach my privacy (intentionally or unintentionally). I'm not trying to hide anything (sometimes I am, but that's not the point), but there is a reason why I only disclose certain things to a select group of friends and not to others: I don't like to expose everything to everyone I know. If you want to know something about me, just ask me. The last thing I want is for people to leak information about me to someone else.
I cannot control how and to whom my information travels to, but I will do as much as I can to prevent others from knowing everything about my life. Because of this, individuals may judge me and tell me I'm overreacting and being oversensitive towards something that is so minor in their eyes. Everyone's different. Call me a freak, a weirdo or whatever; at least I know that I've tried my best to keep my personal information unknown to those that I do not intend to share it with. The least I can ask of you is to keep the things I tell you secret from others. I'm sure they mean no harm to me and are just curious or something, but I would greatly appreciate it if they would ask me directly, instead of going through others to seek out any factual or private information. Thanks.
Or should I not tell anyone anything?
