“Complicated” is a one word response we use from time to time to avoid saying too much especially as it relates to our personal lives.
The truth is, there are people out there living lives that are just that, “complicated” and it’s okay if they choose to be private about their lives.
Those of us who are not as complicated should respect that. Sometimes when someone uses that word it’s just a polite way of saying you are not ready for the truth and or it’s just simply none of your business.
If however, you are playing catch with your friends then it is more than likely a one word summary of all the juicy stuff she or he has to update you on since you last spoke. 🙂
In a case like that, all I can say is meet up. Go to dinner, have a glass of wine, go have tea or coffee whatever works for you. 99% of the time they don’t want our judgement so all we have to do is listen unless asked otherwise.
