Some friends are way too interested in our lifestyle and want us to share our whole lifestyle with them.
I tell you my story, that I am one of the meritorious students of my institute, and 2 friends want me to tell them everything what I'he done yesterday, what are my future plans and much more. They even calculate the time for each activity and expect me to tell the schedule of remaining time. They also want me to tell what I do to recreate my self. But I like to be free and don't want to disclose each and every moment of my life, as it leads to an unnecessary pressure which affects my day to day life. For this reason, I don't like to be with my friends and cut off as much as possible. You would ask me to say 'no' to my friends directly, but you know, some of them are not of that kind and the relations from starting are not that to become so rude. (I am not so clever and don't want to hurt others feelings. Some people are so clever, that they answer by manipulating much, and ask as if I am their servant)
Now, I've to make new friends as I am changing my institute. Please guide me so that I make relations of that kind with my friends which allow me to spend time freely when out of studies and what should I do when someone try to control me and track me so that, along with humbleness, I could share my feelings also.
P.S.: I am talking of the friends with same gender.
