    Re: venting; it’s bad in another way no discussed in the article. The saying, misery loves company, indicates that misery likes to drag other non-misery suffering individuals into the the fold.
    Got a problem – don’t bring it to me unless you have a solution you want to discuss.

    The article states: “The research has been clear for decades: Venting is bad for us.” Yet only mentioned one study by Dr. Brad Bushman. Do you know where i could find all these other research articles that state venting is bad for us?
    I would ask the author of the article but don’t care to create an account @ WSJ just for that nor ask her on twitter or email. Thanks
