Venting isn’t an explosion
Venting isn’t a volcano; it’s racquetball. You and the wall batting back your emotion.
Our brains have something called a neuropathway. This is how the brain communicates. The stronger the pathway, the more likely it will be used. Pathways get stronger with repeated use.
Add that idea with every time you speak, you listen.
Venting isn’t letting your bad feelings out. It is keeping them in.
