• Keep the chat safe. Wanting to ping your work friend about how much you dislike your job can cause you harm. Pinging a group chat by accident or DMing the wrong person could have serious implications. A good rule of thumb: Never say something on chat or email you wouldn't want your team to hear.
  • Choose wisely who you should vent to. It is better to chat with someone you trust than with a new intern who may not know what to do with the information.

Venting is not the same as complaining
  • Complaining is characterised by whining about the same issues while blaming external factors for your emotions. It tends to be chronic.
  • Venting is a momentary release of emotion and frustration. After blowing off some steam, you can continue with your day in a relatively normal manner.
  • Write it down until you feel some of that tension ease up. It may even help you to think more clearly about the issues you're facing.
  • Take a walk. A brief stroll can help distract you. It can also lower your blood pressure and boost your mood. You can also share your troubles with a confidante in a way that doesn't compromise the work environment.
