Is being too open a bad thing?

I am a very open person, pretty much always have been.

But, it wasn’t until recently that I realised maybe I’m a little too open.

So, the other day I was telling my friends about my awkward conversation with someone online, and they asked to see the messages and I was just like, sure.

And then I was like you can read the other messages on there if you like, despite the fact some of them are a little cringy. But I didn’t really care, it was funny.

But then I asked to read some of their messages, which neither of them were okay with. I shrugged it off, but it kind of bothered me.

I mean my ex-boyfriend knew the password to my phone, yet he wouldn’t even let me touch his.

And I guess it’s wrong of me to expect other people to be open just because I am, I mean there are obviously some things that I wouldn’t tell people, so I understand when someone doesn’t want to share.

But does that mean I should start closing myself up a little, I mean wearing my heart on my sleeve is only gonna lead me to disaster right?

Like, people are only going to take advantage of my honesty.

Right? Or not? I’m not really sure.

Anyways, have a groovy day!

  1. Being open has it’s risks for sure … I operate the same as you and yes, people always misunderstand me by my being too open with them. Not so sure it’s a bad thing though.

  2. sometimes it’s advisable to not be too open about certain things, but then again that’s who you are. So my advice is don’t change and close yourself up, just try and limit the people you tell everything and anything to.
