Have you found yourself on an awkward date where you, or your date, shares a little too much? Don't worry. You are not alone and there might be a reason for all the word-vomit.
Phoenix Jackson, a licensed marriage and family therapist, said quote “Part of the problem is that we’re mostly exhausted, and it’s just harder to filter in that state."
When we’re not stressed, it’s easier to handle our impulses and keep our emotions in check.
So how do stop yourself from oversharing?
- Give yourself a time restriction- talk for a few minutes, but then ask a question so you don't dominate the conversation and end up oversharing.
- Reflect before sharing (writing or speaking)
