So my question is did she tell me pretty much her life's story for the past four years because she wanted to share and show off or because she hasn't been able to put anything into perspective by talking about each incident as it happens to someone closely involved?
Wow, that's a long one.
Maybe we just need to vent some days; scream, curse, sweat it out, just do something to get the poison out of our system. Some people run, talk to a friend or write it down. It isn't healthy holding in emotions.
But it doesn't mean you have to over share with a virtual stranger. "No, I don't want to see pictures of your breakfast for the last six months. Thanks for the thought."
