Sounds Like YOUR Problem More Than Mine

Updated on January 20, 2012

TMI Haiku

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.

Shutup! TMI!

That's too much information!

Seems like your problem...

      I often tell you TMI but it usually is because you want to share a great story that involves your creative discriptions of the sounds and scents of the work place bathrooms! Ugh! TMI!

      It is very difficult to tell a writer TMI! We write what we feel and what we want to express. Just as we have freedom to write others have freedom to read or not to read. I agree it is not your problem. Keep on writing!

      I have only heard TMI used in a comical sense, or maybe it's just that I laugh it off. You're right. It's your life - live it, no need to adjust it. Your audience wants to hear what you have to say, the rest can go somewhere else. We can't please everyone :)
