I know, I know... this post is a day late, but I had my head in the oven most of the day yesterday and by the time I crawled out I was exhausted. It was much safer, for everyone, for me to not try writing anything yesterday. Who knows what I would have said.
There are many reasons why I share information about me. Sometimes it is simply because my brain doesn't engage before my mouth opens. Thankfully that doesn't happen as often as it used to. It created a few... interesting... conversations. The best reason I share is to help someone else, to let them know they are not alone. I try to be careful so I don't sound like I'm whining and looking for sympathy. It is way to easy to come across as a complainer.
Another reason I share is for the reverse reason. Maybe someone out there has been through what I have and can give me the support or suggestion that I need to make it. I know I'm not the only one who has (fill in the blank), so there is no need to try to do it myself. Why reinvent the wheel? Square doesn't work, I promise.
Sharing is caring.. unless it oversharing, then it's just TMI.
