I’m a pretty good listener, but I’m not very good at listening without offering a solution. When someone says to me “I just need to vent”… I cringe a little. It’s hard for me to listen to your dilemma, know how to fix it, but bite my tongue because I know you don’t want the solution. Just venting is unhealthy; it brings temporary relief, which leads you to believe “you’re over it”… but you’re not really over it, that’s why it keeps coming back. It’s ok to vent as long as when you’re done, you find & apply a solution. The goal for today: don’t just bitch about it, fix it… then you can say “I’m over it” & mean it! Have a great day everybody!
