Typing to Vent

I just spent a little while typing a post to vent my frustration about a situation and then discuss what I learned from it.  I was not being nasty or negative, but when I came to the end of the post, I felt it had served its purpose and then deleted it.  This is not the first time such has happened, and it likely won’t be the last.  It really can be quite relieving to just type about what is bothering you and your thoughts on the matter, even when nobody else is going to see what you type. Perhaps especially when you do not share what you are typing.  Without going into all the details of the deleted post, I will share some of the wisdom nuggets here:

  • Verbal confrontation forces us to consider how we react to the words/perceptions of others.  You most likely can’t control what somebody says, but you can control whether or not you react with negativity.
  • Don’t let anybody cause you to feel lousy when you have been doing what you can.  People often try to project their perceptions with force and might insult you when you don’t live up to their standards.  You weren’t put here to live up to everybody’s standards.  If you try to do that, you will likely cause constant internal conflict.
  • Don’t second guess your faith because of somebody else insulting it.   Know your own truths.

Blessed be, y’all.
