One of the characteristics of my personality is to talk about my feelings and vent until I feel better. Within this past year I have learned so much about myself, and a trait that I am finding out about myself if that I need to talk about things until I feel better about them, and although that isn't a horrible trait I realize that I by the end of my venting everyone knows all my thoughts and feelings about everything.
Yesterday at work was a real test of this, someone came into the office and said someone said something about me and although what they said wasn't that bad it pissed me off. The person that told me often times is known for keeping drama going, but when she said it I knew the other person had said it because I know their personality (and plus it was confirmed today). So really all of this is a combination of "he said, she said," but the other part is that I vented about it to my coworkers in my department and in the end I thought to myself that I shouldve just left it alone! I couldve been pissed and just blew it off!
Starting today I will be working on dealing with my emotions, no longer will I vent about anything except to my close family and friends. Or I can use the extra energy and blog about it, but there are so many outlets to use rather than engage in conversations with my coworkers about it.
