    Default please check my sentence

    "At first I was a little hesitant to share this video because of characters that hurled abuses. But the dialogues used here are pretty hilarious. I couldn't resist myself to share this video."

    Are above sentences error free?
    Thanks

    No, they're not.

    Thanks.
    At first, I was a little hesitant about sharing this video because of the characters who/which hurl abuse. However, the dialogues used are pretty hilarious. I couldn't resist sharing the video.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Thanks Mam for your explanation. But could not understand the differences in the meaning of the following sentence.

    1. I couldn't resist myself to share this video.
    2. I couldn't resist sharing this video.

    I would use "dialogue" as singular.

    Sentence 1 is ungrammatical. That's not how we say it.

    We don't use "resist myself".

    In addition to "I couldn't resist sharing this video", you could say, "I couldn't stop myself from sharing this video" or "I couldn't help sending this video".
