Over-sharing or Radical Vulnerability?

When we are radically vulnerable, we not only work to heal ourselves, we are healing those around us. There is strength and beauty in being soft, and in using that softness as a weapon against a machine that tells us we are too sensitive or emotional.

“I am testifying as an emotional woman and I would like to ask you, gentlemen, what’s wrong with emotion? Beauty is a resource in and of itself. Alaska must be allowed to be Alaska, that is her greatest economy. I hope the United States of America is not so rich that she can afford to let these wildernesses pass by, or so poor she cannot afford to keep them.”

Oversharing is saying something personal or inappropriate in the wrong setting or to the wrong person. But it’s not always easy to tell when your child is actually doing that. You might think your child gives up way too much information. But younger people tend to share things more freely than adults do. (Google again)
