Today my boss at my job was unexpectedly personal and friendly with me which believe it or not is a problem. As long as work is about work, I can put on my Professional Work Persona and deal with people. But when someone starts asking about me, my life, and my mother it gets harder to know what to say without saying too much or just flat out lying. My boss sure doesn't need to know that I'm standing on the edge of hell feeling like I'm about to fall in and that even the most tedious parts of my job are a welcome escape - and I didn't say that, but what I did say revealed more than I was comfortable with in hindsight. I've become so isolated personally that whenever I do have to be social and talk about who I am, what's happening in my life, I'm awkward, don't know what to say or say things that reveal too much pain to people who I don't really trust with that information. Anybody else struggle with this?
