because we are human and sometimes it feels good to vent.

I know it makes me feel better to get it out rather than hold it in. I don't expect it to change but I like to talk through my problems.

 Because it is better to vent and get it out. To allow yourself that time to just complain, yell, vent, etc, and calm down before trying to tackle whatever it is that has you upset.

Can you honestly say you have NEVER complained about anything? Knowing your words will not do anything to help the situation, you just needed to get it out?

I had fun trying to pronounce 'situtataion.'

Anyways, it's like PPs said. Bottling it up is really unhealthy. Sometimes people just need to vent and they feel better.

It helps some people think things through and calm down when they verbalize their problems or write/type them out.

But it can change the situation!  Sometimes, when you write something down, you see it in a new light and will think of new ideas to address your problem. Plus, it isn't good to bottle up negative emotions, as they can effect you physically as well as emotionally, so writing them out can be a huge stress relief.

Because its the only way some people know his to express feelings of anger or frustration.

Personally, I don't think that "venting " is always as helpful as people claim. Sometimes our feelings are irrational and giving them undue validity is unhealthy. Not everything you think needs to come out of your mouth
