I've been living in the dark ages and finally got Spotify! I know, I can hear you all saying, what?!
Yeah, it's true. I never saw the point, I didn't listen to music enough. Now due to being inside, sitting at my laptop on a rainy Thursday, I'm loving putting my headphones in and listened to Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears is the literal highlight of my Spotify playlist.
Anyway - - - - I've come to the conclusion that I'm an Oversharer.
Prime example. I doubt any of you were even interested that I had just gotten Spotify, let alone want to know who I'm listening too.
So Oversharing - - -
When you are with the girls, when your with the people you feel most comfortable with, we overshare. I mean, I'll happily embarrass myself, reliving those moments that you wish you hadn't just told everyone. That word vomit, I wish I could rewind time, and tell myself to keep my mouth shut! Anyone else blurt out something, you just wish you hadn't? Why won't the ground just swallow me up right now.
We all do it, after a few glasses of wine, share all the private details of our lives - - - the embarrassing thing happened at the weekend or the details of our sex lives.
Even though we all overshare at some point, there are many negative factors to being an oversharer. If you go out to make someone's life a misery by gossiping and oversharing private details of their life, then you're a douche!
Oversharing can be a good thing, if you are oversharing about yourself. There is a fine line, between oversharing about yourself, to oversharing to seek sympathy. If you want to always be the victim and continuously want people to feel sorry for you, then you really are a negative oversharer. Sometimes we have to share bits of our private life with others like work colleagues - to oversharing to want people to feel sorry for you because you are dealing with something.... we all deal with things, you don't always have to make them so public.

For me, Oversharing is talking to people I know and feel comfortable telling things too. Like giving an explanation, a simple answer is needed. I'll happily go back to the start of a story and explain the whole situation, not the two second example you are after.
Yes, I'll tell you all about Aunt Sally in Tesco and her shouting at every passing person - - - TWO METERS - - - not that you wanted to know, you just wanted to know if I picked up milk and the answer is no, I didn't. Aunt Sally was blocking the Milk and I was to scared to pass her, knowing that I'd get the shrill of her voice in my ear. - - - TWO METERS LOVE - - -
