SOC Sunday-NOT venting

Today I was going to write about venting.  Venting, and how when you vent, in my opinion, it tends to escalate whatever it is your venting about..depending on what that is.  For example, if I’m venting about how crazy my co-worker irritates me, am I doing it so the other person I’m venting to will think ill of that person as well.  Will my irritation escalate and send me to vent to others?  OK, yes, someone  drove me a little nutty last  week.  I was ready to text my friend F. to let her know so she could commiserate and agree with me on how nutty this person really is.  I took a deep breath and thought, does F. really need me to inundate her with more negativity.  Let’s stop the negativity rollercoaster.  So I didn’t vent to F.  I did vent to The Big Guy, but he’s an impartial party, he listened, commented where it needed and you know what…I felt so much better.  OK, so this doesn’t make any sense……I don’t think I put  my thoughts into words as well as I was hoping to…!
