Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Does Venting Really Help? YES!
When: Thursday, July 21st at 4 pm Pacific Time
The latest research tells us that venting doesn’t really help. In fact, it actually makes us more fatigued and angry. We don’t get closer to resolution. We might even push people further away because anger is so unappealing.
But wait! There is a place for venting. Right here, among people who understand fully what you deal with. When you vent in a vacuum, you just get sicker. But when you vent with those who get it, you actually calm right down, don’t you?
It’s a relief to be heard. Yes, we may start with a rant, but it seldom ends that way when someone listens and cares and knows that you are speaking the truth.
I have heard many times that this group has saved someone’s life. I believe it because where else can you rant and vent and still know that everyone here will support you through thick and thin?
Hopefully, we can get beyond the venting on this call, but there might need to be room for a little ranting. After all, we live in the chaotic world of NeuroDivergent relationships.
