  • Bitching is pretty much rambling anout sone thing that irratates you, but you have no basis, it is a topic that angers you grately or you just want to be right. Ex. Bisexuals are the devil! ( I do not believe this I am one.)
    Complaining is more or less venting about an issue you do not know how to, but usually only want a soundbord, or just figure know one will listen or care. Ex. My husband wont take out the trash, help with the house, or pick up after himself.
    Being negative Is more or less waiting for the other shoe to drop. Ex I finally have my baby boy now let me guess it's the end of the world. Or it could also be some one focusing on one neggative point and sigling that out for their opinion. Ex The mother looked away for a minute and the child was gone. Ya right like she was even watching.
    Depressedis a chemical imbalance and a constant fight to not feel the way you do. Usually cause by a great experience tramatic deat

  • All of them have to do with one thing - venting (except depression). It's different ways to express your frustrations. Everyone takes it out different ways. Someone did something you think is out of line or wrong and you vented (it has so many names now).

  • I have been fighting to overcome a severe depression - bitching and whining and complaining takes too much energy. I've noticed that depressive people keep a lot of the bitching inside - we don't want to bring attention (for the most part) to ourselves and what's going on in our heads. its when we start to heal that it comes out

    depression is a scary beast.
