This is the answer to the rhetorical question asked by some characters when they realize that they're talking about something private (and usually painful). The question is "Why am I talking to you about this?"

Examples: seaQuest DSV Pilot - Nathan Bridger talking to the hologram professor about his feelings surrounding the death of his family and how he feels being at sea.
