Do you think it is smart to vent on social media that you are going through or went through personal issues?

Either in Facebook, or from the personal app Whatassp status. I know many people do it but I want to know the deep reason for them of doing it.

Is it a cry for help for real because they can't find a solution somewhere else outside social media and they have to let people know they are in problems, is it just to draw attention from people so they are just acting like victims and poor them or what other reason could it be? There are mny types of way how a person show their problems on social media, such as writing texts from their own hand about some bad experiences in their past, another way is to find texts and phrases on internet related to their issues and copy paste to their social media accounts. Some of those texts may include criticism towards women for instance because the guy had a bad relationship with women or their exes so they rant it and post it on social media that he can't trust people anymore and only God is the healer and they enjoy being alone and single cause they hate drama (a friend of mine is like this), etc so they rant it on social media.

Is it really wise to do that and will it really help?

I dont know maybe I did wrong in telling a friend why he keep posting bad messages towards women on his Whatassp story texts.

There s a 52yrd old male guy who is a friend of mine, we dont hang out though but we had knwon each otehr for many years now. Lately this friend is postin on his Whatassp status texts he writes himself about him not trusting anymore friends, some relatives because those people always betray him and leave him when things had gone wrong in his life so he only puts his faith in God, his parents and his teenage children cause they will never leave him. Also he wries down texts about that he is better single than in a relationship with women cause women are not to be trusted or that all women are similar. I mean he has some issues for sure. This friend had been divorced for many years now anyway and after that he never cont..

women. He told me that I was taken for granted as some of his messages are aimed to women and indeed if he writes that is because those are things about what is going on in his life or went through in his life, relationship problems, ex problems, life problems. At this moment he is with noone, anyway but his issues with his ex took place more than 8 years ago, but now living alone he writes that stuff. The odd thing his ex is a psychologist and she is his therapist when he needs therapy.
