Sounds Like YOUR Problem More Than Mine
I've been known as that TMI guy. But I've been thinking about it and I don't think the person who is willing to share his experiences, many of them hard and negative, is a bad thing. It's being human. We're so closed off. We have a term TMI which is basically an acronym used to make someone willing to share their history as being the problem. Seems opposite to me. Writers often share deeply personal experiences. Be it in written form or when talking to people. Hopefully, the experiences, which would be nothing new to someone somewhere... is helpful to someone. It makes me wonder more about a person who feels the need to stifle someone who shares a personal experience than I do for the TMI guy (or girl). If you do share, you share. It's hard to turn off. It's sort of like complaining about being green if you are a frog.
