"Be careful who you vent to."
Let me start by saying, I have always retweeted that twitter quote for anyone on my timeline who may be going through it. I however never thought I'd be going through it as well. I have always been the person who struggled with venting to the people i should, i saved my energy for my therapist because she's getting paid for me to unload everything and on top of that, she gives me good tools to use when it feels like too much and i need a mental break. I was in between sessions and needed to speak to someone who could identify with some of my issues i was going through and welp, i fell victim to the twitter quote i have always shared. When you vent to someone and you preface it by, "please don't repeat this, i just need an objective opinion" and then a few weeks later you're bombarded by what you said in confidence. [insert rolling eyes emoji] that's a tough pill to swallow.
This whole experience has reminded me that I'm not protected from falling victim to the twitter quote, i'm not too good that someone won't spread my business because its convenient and while it sucks a lot and has caused some issues it has also become a necessary life lesson. I need to speak out more, I need to be more honest about how i feel and what i feel - people can't read my mind and lying about my feelings aren't going to help anyone involved.
so, have you ever fallen victim to the, "be careful who you vent to" quote? if so, drop a comment and tell me all about it!
