To Rant, Or Not to Rant, That is the Question

How do you feel about online ranting?

Have you ever?

If so, did it help?  Or were you embarassed later to read the emotionally tinged words?

I'm cautious of ranting, even when something is burning inside me.  I'm so reluctant to speak my frustration that if a friend happens to call me and the anger falls out of my mouth, I later regret having shown that side of me.

Thursday was a difficult day.  The energy that came with it carried into the weekend.  I'm still trying to release, release, release.

But the noise still keeps going in my head.   All kinds of scenarios are playing out, scenarious that are never going to happen.  Some part of my sick and tired brain must be entertained by this anxiety driven ranting.

I wonder why I was ever kind to certain people.  Isn't that a horrible thought?


  1. Hi Jenny. Sorry to hear that you're feeling like this my friend. It's not very pleasant at all, and I hope it will pass. No, that is not a horrible thought. We all feel like that at some time or other. When I was at Church this morning, the theme was that it's easy to be nice to people who we like, but not so easy with people who wind us up! I must remember this and be nice to everyone. Not easy, but I really must try. Try not to let this upset you too much. Rather, try to let it go.

    1. Thank you dear friend, your words comfort and soothe this sore heart. I'm going to try to convert the negative energy into some creative project. Over the years this has helped me to get out of those mental loops that bring on so much discontent and depression.

  2. I'm so sorry you're having to go through this. I do hope it has resolved itself by now, but know you are in my prayers. Don't let this person stop the flow of kindness you always have overflowing from your spirit. I like what you commented back to our friend, Diane. Channel that frustration and those negative feelings into what you do so well.
