  • None of my friends and relatives are the type to hold back to begin with, so whenever they have an issue with me, I hear about it right away anyway, heh.

  • I'm sure what I'd think my family would say is far worse than what they would with one exception - the in-laws. I'm sure they'd rip into me all sorts of sideways (and probably do behind my back) but I'd also know they're lying because the whole family is one big gossiping group of tall-tales. (that and I know they know next to nothing about me because I avoid them.)

  • Hmmm... I'm not sure if I'd want to know :-(

    Answer by briannacline at 6:14 PM on Oct. 8, 2010

  • I hear it anyway, at least what my inlaws think, as it comes back to me through other members of the family I'm closest to. I really don't care, so I'm sure I could handle it. I am who I am, and I don't care what people think - it doesn't change anything. I'm not defined by anyone's perception, I am defined by my thoughts and actions. So it wouldn't bother me in the least, if I were to hear negative things about me, lol. :)
