what constitutes venting or detraction? vs talking about a problem or getting consolation?
for example, if my best friend calls me to ask how my day was and I had gotten in to a fight with my mom and she said some really horrible things, am I venting or detracting by telling her? I mean, she can’t necessarily help by solving my problem, she usually just offers to pray
I know we aren’t supposed to reveal other faults or failings without an objectively good reason but I just still dont’ know what those reasons might be. is me feeling hurt nad upset a good enough reason? am I just being too self-centered? should we even be getting upset when people are mean to us?
