Information Hostage

I don’t like being left in the dark. I don’t like when people withhold information. It is one of those things that immediately puts me on the defensive. Like what kind of information is it that it can’t be shared? Is it information that I can’t handle? Why would one think I can’t handle the information?

I recognize that some people actively hold on to information, or in a passive agressive way deflect giving of the information in a straightforward way; indicating someone else knows what they know and I should go find it out from someone else when it’s obvious that it’s information that they have.

Not knowing makes me feel small and unimportant.
