Ever wanted to kick yourself after “oversharing” something online or in a conversation that you really just wished you’d kept to yourself?  Of, what about that situation where someone tells you something that you would just really prefer not to be told?  Of course, you have!  We have all done it and had it dumped on us.  So, don’t kick yourself too much if you’ve been the oversharer or handled a situation poorly when you were the recipient.  On the other hand, don’t continue to overshare if you have this tendency and put some tools in your toolbox for dealing with it when it’s coming at you.  

This show dives into the reasons why oversharing happens and what to do if you are a recipient of overshared info.  If you want to avoid or better handle sticky overshare situations in the future, take some time to understand the who, what, when, and why of oversharing and set your boundaries.  Healthy boundaries are the key.
