#write31days: Day 18 – Share

I often wonder if I share too much.

Not in terms of sharing my drinks, food or possessions (though, maybe that’s true, too) but more in terms of sharing about my life. I’m an open book. I’ll talk about anything and everything that I’ve experienced. I think, in many ways, this is a good thing but I often question whether I overshare and, therefore, cross over into the not-so-good, “shadow,” side of that particular character trait.

Like, people don’t really care about my experiences nor did they even necessarily ask about them and, yet, here I am just pouring it all out.

It hasn’t stopped me from sharing, mind you. Not yet anyway. But, as I’ve grown older, it has begun to temper the amount that I share in any given situation. Not every situation or every time but, more times than before, I’ve stopped short of what I might have shared in my younger years. I’ve yet to decide whether this is good or bad or, even, how I really feel about it.

How do you feel regarding sharing about your life? What do you see as the pros and cons to your current level of sharing?
