I think it’s important to be positive.
But at the same time, it’s okay to vent.
I’m part of several Facebook groups and sometimes there is a vent post where people can leave comments on what is currently bugging them. Always, ALWAYS there will be someone who is all, “Instead of venting, how about we stay positive?” or, “Just wanted to say instead of a vent that I’m so proud of my husband!”
Look, again, it’s OKAY to stay positive.
But it’s also OKAY to vent.
Venting helps. If I were happy all the time, I’d want to smack myself. I could never befriend someone who was constantly blowing sunshine from her butt. It just wouldn’t work and I’d have to bite my tongue to prevent from saying something snarky whenever she’d go on about her perfect life and poops that smell like roses.
I have to practically sit on my hands to not say something to the anti-venting people. I want to say, “My current annoyance is the people who whine about those who are venting. Aren’t they technically venting too…?” I don’t, because some people online have VERY thin skin and would take immediate offense.
So instead, whenever I see a venting post I basically make a bet with myself, “In an hour, someone will complain about the venting…”
And more often than not, it always happens…
