“Can I vent?” My best friend and I text that sentence back and forth all the time especially since I am very gifted in the art of ruminating. Being able to talk to someone helps me stop my internal thought pattern. What felt big in my body can seem small once I've shared it with someone else. A good vent sesh allows someone to hold space for you while you figure yourself out. It's not just about having friends for this, but also mentors or advisors so you can get advice from a different perspective. Who doesn’t feel better after a vent?
