I need to let you know, that in the moment of pain, it's easy to vent to others because it feels good to get the pain off of your chest. I need you to know, however, that once you let someone else in on your pain, you must then work to protect your feelings should that person one day get upset with you, and vent all about your venting.
It seems easy enough to pray to The Creator, but why then, are there an abundance of people who choose to vent to another human?
Each time I've vented to someone, I've almost immediately regretted it. Spreading your pain to others only transfers the pain to more people, and it also transfers your business. Can we take a moment to be very careful who we vent to?
Some of you are venting to a friend, about a mutual friend, then you're upset when the person you vented to runs back and vents your venting.
Some of you are venting on the job, about a boss, and then you're upset when you're workplace gets even more uncomfortable because someone vented your vent.
Some of you are venting about your spouse, then, you're upset when someone else swoops in to "save" him/her because your venting comes off as your not wanting to make the relationship work.
Babe, not everyone has your best interest at heart. Some people are only patting your back to find a nice spot to place the knife they plan on sticking you with.
