@links56 "here here" to that. I used to vent a little too often to family and friends but I've realized over time, that while they love me, they just can't relate to what life is like. After a while I see them tune out and I know I'm overstaying my welcome of complaining. I'm not really complaining, but I know that's how it sounds to them. Better to share here and there instead of weighing down my loved ones that have their own worries and issues in life.
