It's like release therapy when we're able to finally let our true emotions out to an outsider. We find comfort in venting. When we have issues within our relationship we tend to vent to other women. We feel better when we are running our mouths about our problems to a girlfriend rather than communicating our emotions with our man. As women we understand each other far better than men seem to. So, having that talk with our man seems more like a daunting task than a movement in the right direction.
Now, there may be some repercussions form venting your problems to a friend, because after all, her loyalty is to you, not him. Your friend may start to have negative thoughts and feelings towards him because of the things you have told her in confidence. If you are talking bad about your man to her then you may be sending a message that it is okay for her to bash him. Once the issue is resolved and you and your man are in a good place she still might be thinking about all the negative things he’s done, and may not let you forget either.
For the record, I’m not saying that all women do that. I have a best friend that I can tell anything to and she doesn’t judge and doesn’t ever say anything negative about my relationship because she respects it and my feelings. However, from my experience, most people feed on negative energy and will try to keep it afloat.
Some things are better kept between the two people in the relationship. That eager sensation to share your business with others should be suppressed. Sometimes it helps to vent, but everyone is not trustworthy. So, be careful who you run your mouth to because Haters Hate Love. Do you ever find yourself in a situation you don't like because you've ran your mouth to the wrong person? What's your philosophy behind this issue?
