Hi I’m Amy and I am an over sharer…. big time!
I’d like to blame it on the isolation from quarantine but if I’m being honest, I’ve pretty much always been this way as an adult.
Weird thing is…I am a huge introvert and a very private person! I don’t like crowds or a lot of social activities and I think this has seriously affected my social skills.
So, in the past week, I have told the lady at the drive-thru window that it was my sister that ordered the loaded baked potato…totally irrelevant!
When friends or family ask how I’m doing I actually blurt out how I’m doing, which can get pretty heavy. I realize what I have done about the time I see their face fall and they are speechless.
When the local gas station clerk asks how my mom is doing, I go on to share about her seasonal depression.
A nurse friend at my doctor’s office asked how I’d been doing and I proceeded to blurt out across the check-in desk that I would be good if I could quit having miscarriages.
Like What. Is. Wrong. With. Me?
I told the grocery delivery lady where I lived, they didn’t deliver to so I was just picking my groceries up at my sister’s. Then I went on to tell her how I recently blew out my knee and why I was wearing a knee brace.
It’s not like I go up and offer ANY information ever to anyone. But God help me if someone asks! I’m an overflowing fountain of utter truth with no discretion. I can’t seem to filter what is appropriate. I wonder if this is some sort of rare form of Tourette’s.
So, if you see me out avoiding eye contact, it is for your own good. I am trying to spare you a super awkward moment for both of us since I have no filter.
And for the love of all things Holy, please do not ask me how I’m doing, I can’t promise what will come out.
