Yeah, same here. You'll be talking away together, they'll ask about your achievements lately - you tell them honestly (without being a dick) and they just go dead quiet. Happened on a date for me (one which had been going perfectly well beforehand), which was probably the most awkward experience of my life. I'm not sure why. I love hearing about other people's journeys, the ups and downs, etc. I think deep at heart, I'm that one person from Mean Girls who just wants to bake rainbows and smiles tbh. I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO BE HAPPY AND FEEL LOVED, OKAY?!! Honestly though. It's been like this since high school. You learn to talk about the highlights sparingly, and even then, people sometimes get hurt - which I don't even really mind, I kinda get it - it's just that I would dearly love to share the journey with these people. It's such a bummer when you feel yourself having to hide stuff from them.
