Expressing Yourself

I know that some would say expressing yourself in the blog forum may be dangerous to your health. Maybe you are putting too much out there and it should be kept private. I have to disagree to a certain extent. Healthy venting is a good thing. There are rules to it in my opinion and most psychologists would agree. It needs to be done with facts, not innuendo, and above all else, no names mentioned or use of foul language.

I find that people do not understand how crude and socially deficient they sound when they use that kind of language. It only adds to the perception that the person is of low class. When they continue with accusing others of actions that reasonable people find implausible, it only adds to that perception and it could be considered bullying. Bullying can be cause bodily injury. There have been suicides in the news recently and it can cause a child to take a gun to school. There are many school districts who can attest to this fact.

I think what I am trying to say is that there is a difference between venting and social bullying. The difference is major and cannot be missed by those who are capable of telling them apart. It is where tact or silence is the far better choice.
