Thoughts on Melodrama

Somehow I seem to be the sort of person that people tell their life story to even when I don't know them very much. This was even before I got on livejournal. :)
A number of people tell me about some of the trauma that they are going through and worry about whether or not they are being melodramatic. So, I started thinking about the difference between strongly emoting and melodrama. It's taken me a couple of months but I think I finally came up with something that satisfies me:

Someone being melodramatic seeks to draw more people in while someone emoting strongly tends to want it to be more private...

I'm specifically looking for comments on this.
