I have always been a person who overshares. I used to believe it was a flaw because I could not stop blurting out random conversations or factoids about myself. What can I say? I'm quirky? Sure, we will go with that. Oversharing became a way for people to connect with me, and understand the “why” that comes from many of my choices. My transparency helped pave the way for a safe space to shed all that doesn't serve me.
