Some people won’t suffer in silence because
that would take all the fun out of it.
The words above the picture are from bluebird of bitterness‘
post yesterday. And they are so true!
We all know someone, or many someones, who are very vocal about their problems and suffering that drives us crazy. They always seem to have something to complain about and make it quite clear that their life is awful…and that we should agree with them. So, just agree with them. Don’t make any suggestions or even hint that things will get better. That will just start another tirade about how you don’t understand them and what an awful time they are having.
It is okay to have an occasional rant about our troubles and woes, even good for us. It can be cathartic to just let it all out and then be done with it. I have been known to rant and rave about what is bothering me but I see no need to go on and on. Carrying on just makes whoever is listening wonder why they ever thought of you as a nice person.
One bit of advise then this mini rant will be over. If you suffer loudly and long it is best to be sure the person subjected to it is a really good friend…or someone you don’t care about at all.
