Welcome to DearSugar’s Venting Machine, a place to air and share your daily grievances.
Research strongly indicates that rumination and pent-up frustration are bad for our well-being and our relationships. Let it go here, girls, so it doesn’t follow you home.
Like fingernails on a chalkboard when the boyfriend says everything's fine when everything is obviously, definitely not fine, but he isn't about to discuss or explore the fine-not fine issue at hand. Sometimes it's easy to wait until he's ready or able, and sometimes it's way past time to roll up our sleeves.
