I remember once, when I was living with an aunt and uncle, my uncle's employer was having a company picnic. I wandered off to the play area, where a woman sat alone, staring off at nothing. This was clearly an invitation to sit next to her and tell her all sorts of things, including that my uncle's boss was a real jerk and my uncle hated him. Of course, I was sitting next to the boss's wife, and I spent a few months in fear after that, wondering if she'd told her husband what I'd said.
But I'm an adult now, and the oversharing never really stopped. I'd say it's partly who I am deep inside, partly the result of starting therapy at age seven, and partly the fault of the internet. My oversharing is no longer limited, giving me access to say a lot of things to a lot of strangers. And since I've been online, my real life oversharing has gotten even worse.
So, how do I change it before I let it ruin friendships and relationships? Can I change it? Should I? What do you think?
