Well Well Well
People (only a handful of) asked me what's my take on this. Like you actually care about my opinion, or it's a form of sarcasm, I will never know. But still, this is a good topic to write.
I don't usually share my personal problems with acquaintances, only to families and a few good friends. I tweeted these problems several times , but not to the extend they understood or could grasp the whole story... nope. TMI, therefore I usually talk to my sister or good friends about it only if I can't handle the pressure anymore. Learnt not too long ago that if I can't do anything to solve them, at least I need to talk to someone. Not necessarily for their advises or what not, I just need someone to listen. A couple of useful advice won't hurt anyone right?
I do admit I rant a lot about work and stuff to them (acquaintances).
That's (read: popcorn time) also what I do when I see families and friends share their personal problems (like really really personal). If I know the whole story, then I'll reply or text / call them to offer some sort of comfort. If not..
... I don't give a damn. Simple.
