I find myself being extremely pessimistic with most people when they tell me they're "in school" or "engaged", because my first reaction in my head is "yeah, we'll see!" Not that I would ever say any of it out loud, but with most people, I have a hard time believing it until I see it actually happen.
One of my besties is in school, and I know she goes hard at it so I know she will finish. My old college roommate got married and I knew they would because I have seen their relationship. But some co-workers and some of my brother's friends and other acquaintances I just see making hasty decisions and not following through on anything so I am instantly skeptical.
I feel bad thinking negatively about someone's (potential) major life changing events, but I'm not wrong very often.
If you think it is me...what should I do about it? I don't say anything, and will offer congratulations and well wishings, but should I make an effort to change thinking about it. This is the first I've really come out and said I think like this?
And what about you? Do you find yourself doing the same thing?
Am I an old bitty now? Because I think this is something they would think LOL
