I find that my emotional retardation really gets me in trouble a lot of times.
Like when I say things, or do things that offend people or hurt people's feelings, I usually don't know why it upsets them, and I find it hard to understand what the big deal is all the freaking time about tip-toeing around people.
Usually I stay quiet around people I don't know, out of fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and either looking like an idiot, or hurting someone's feelings.
Also, when I am comfortable enough to finally express myself, and someone like my boyfriend or my best friend gets upset about something I say or do, I try to ask why they feel the way they do, and I get the "you should know what you did wrong" treatment...
In all honesty, I usually have NO CLUE what it was that I did or said to set them off... and it's really really frustrating... It makes me avoid people... I really really have a hard time identifying exactly what's appropriate or inappropriate, and oftentimes I end up looking like an insensitive asshole, which makes me feel like an idiot.
Does anyone else have this problem?
