I always had this problem with people thinking I’m stuck up or too serious because I’m not very expressive and talkative with everyone. I try to not care too much about it but sometimes it’s hard to not feel like there’s something wrong with me ( And I had this feeling for quite some time in the past).
My guess about this is that it’s more related to the need that someone people have to shame others for not behaving in a certain way, and if you have boundaries or if you don’t want to interact with everyone in the room( specially if they are toxic in some way), some people see you as an closed off person.
Has anyone here experienced that? And what kind of strategy or attitude you had to deal with this kind of situation?
Ps: English is not my first language, so I hope I expressed myself clearly!
