Circle of Trust

It wasn’t until a few years ago that learned an important distinction between two concepts.    Complaining is when you are criticizing a situation that you don’t like.   You should strive to offer possible solutions that will remedy your complaint.    Venting is when you want to get something off your chest, but you don’t really expect anyone to act on it.    I often find it productive to describe to someone out loud that I am venting….it allows me to get past my emotion and into a headspace where I can be productive.
