Ask Amy: Friend is uncomfortable with overshares

Dear Amy: “Sandy” and I are close friends from college. Our friend group has stayed close, despite living in different states. We have a group text chat, and occasionally get together. Recently, Sandy has been going through a rough patch after a painful divorce. She is something of an “influencer” on social media and has been sharing all of her personal experiences about her mental health journey publicly. I feel conflicted about the disparity between her public sharing and the lack of openness within the very safe space of our close-knit group. While I understand that social media is her chosen outlet, I don’t understand why she would do this instead of confiding in a group of people who actually know her well. I’m very private and find it strange when others overshare on social media. Additionally, Sandy hasn’t initiated any conversation with me in a long time. I have very young children at home and a demanding work schedule.
