    how to indicate listener and speaker

    "I want to share some of my important things to you."

    Do you think that the sentence stated above is correct? Please, say why it is wrong and write the correct one.

    Here the word "important" has been used. To whom 'things' are important? To speaker or to listener? If these are important to listener, how to rewrite this sentence to express that these are important to speaker, and vice versa.

    Re: how to indicate listener and speaker

    I would rewrite your first sentence as: "I want to share some of my important things with you."

    I would write your second as:
    "I want to share some things that may/will be important for you."
