Sometimes, I really want to write a “venting” post, one where I let it all out and just complain, complain, complain. A post where I seek justification for my hurt feelings and maybe a little commiseration when I share a negative experience. Usually, a negative experience brought on by someone else.
I’ve written some of those posts. Written them and, thankfully, deleted the majority of them without ever hitting “publish”.
For me, the writing process is usually all the therapy that I need. I get it down in written word, re-read it, think things through, and then decide, “This isn’t worth dwelling on. I don’t want to put this on the internet only to be reminded of it, either through people’s comments or through my blog archives. It’s enough to write it, and then let it go.”
Deep breath in….
