Web Exclusive: To Share Or Not to Share
Is there such a thing as too much information in someone's share?
"I shared that it was very brave of him to speak of this."
Something happened at an AA meeting last night that made me leave in tears. A young woman came up to me after a meeting and said that I "over-shared". She was not referring to how long I talked and I was not sure what she was referring to. The man who chose the topic wanted to read "Tightrope" in the Big Book. We read the story and then he shared that he had been raped while drinking by his best friend and told of its effects on his manhood and sexuality.
