Vulnerability vs. Oversharing, Part 3: Songs That Overshare (on purpose)

This is the last (for now) in this series of three blogposts about the difference between vulnerability and oversharing. Sometimes there are songs that do give a little more information than might seem necessary. Some of the ones that come to mind are: I’m not wearing underwear today, Avenue Q (well, probably 2/3 of the show qualifiesContinue reading “Vulnerability vs. Oversharing, Part 3: Songs That Overshare (on purpose)”

Vulnerability vs. Oversharing, Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, I talked about oversharing being the projection your emotions onto someone as opposed to being vulnerable and having those emotions resonate with them.

Vulnerability vs. Oversharing – Part 1

NOTE:  This was originally published in July 2013. In reviewing it, it’s ridiculously long, so I’m re-doing it in two parts… ***** Recently, I’ve been watching videos by psychologist Brené Brown on the topic of vulnerability. She has done extensive research on the advantages and disadvantages of making yourself vulnerable and allowing yourself to be authenticContinue reading “Vulnerability vs. Oversharing – Part 1”
