Recognizing when you are angry is good for you – spraying it on others is not!
‘Venting’ is an excuse for dumping (in all senses of the word) your unhappiness on someone else and justifying it with pseudo-science.
It is only a momentary relief. You still haven’t dealt with the problem and are only setting yourself up for backlash!

An opportunity to experiment with some fun
Take a deep breath – okay, about 4 of them - and then –

Now step back from the moment and ask yourself what is getting under your skin?
Is the person you are angry at really your enemy?
Do they deserve to be emotionally beaten up?
