I recently read an article on Medium that warned writers of the danger of oversharing. It basically said that your writing shouldn’t be tapping into your personal misery too much since this could and eventually would overwhelm your audience.

I still don’t know what to say to this. I have been writing a lot about my personal mental health struggles and this article weighed me down tremendously.
