Don’t beat yourself up before you follow the reviews below. The speech of a spoiled person has its characteristics, really. Pay attention and be prepared to be more strict with him.
1. No matter the place, time, and atmosphere when venting
Whether you are very busy or in a hurry, he forces you to listen to his stories. Even though you said you had to leave immediately and give him another time to vent, he still told you what he wanted to tell you.
Like the flow of water, the vent can’t be dammed. If you act indifferent and completely leave him, he will be angry and think you are evil. In fact, he was the one who didn’t care about your needs at that time.
