I have a bad habit of speaking ill of people when I am with my mom. I start out as merely “venting” but it soon escalates into revealing fault after fault of the person who I am venting about. I always feel guilty about it but I still continue to do it.
Can someone offer some insight into the line between just venting about someone who has annoyed you and the sin of detraction? Or is the venting in itself the sin of detraction since it inevitably involves revealing the faults of others?
