Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?
Verified by Psychology Today
At 50 years old I am just now realizing I am an introvert - my ex is an extrovert. I always thought I was 'socially awkward'. His profession included a lot of entertaining and now I see where I was not an asset in that area. He is able to strike up conversation with anyone, anywhere and I was jealous and resentful. He is very likable and has funny anecdotes and many 'experiences' to talk about. I had nothing to contribute in social situations and often felt abandoned as a visitor in his world. This cycle created so much jealousy and resentment, which I didn't know how to communicate and my insecurities were turned into accusations. No wonder he left. It's terrible to just now be finding out the root of our problems that destroyed our marriage and family.
