I’m laughing just a bit at those who accuse you of oversharing who seem to be oblivious to the fact that it’s exactly that which has made you such a Medium star. People love how relatable you are and that you aren’t shy about talking about difficult things.

I’ve had a few guys try to ding me recently for writing about my sexual encounters as if that were an out of line thing to do, and as if I were doing it without my partner’s consent. Meanwhile, my lovers enjoy reading my take on our latest date and the ways that I characterize our relationship — something that isn’t always easy to explain. Small people always seem to want to take potshots at those who are living expansively.
