In a world in which everyone is being taught that vulnerability, open-heartedness, and being affected is a good thing. Venting is a horrible practice.
Take it from someone who is considered ”high sensitive” all venting does is take the negative energy that has built up in one person and sent it over to another.
Unless the person who is being vented to is skilled at holding space – that is creating an environment in which the junk can be aired but not transferred – they end up with it themselves. And it’s not even their thing!
So let’s do one another a favor. Let’s diminish the amount of venting we do. And if we absolutely need to, let’s do it with someone we know can hold the space.
