Pay attention

My confession is that I’m finding it really frustrating to listen to people ranting about how awful someone is when I know how much that person has done for them. Why do some people only notice the bad stuff about other people? Like they completely forget about all the good things and focus only on the bad things like when that person didn’t behave well or something. I try to be a good listener and remain neutral because I care so much about all of them, but sometimes I want to shake them.

Both things can be true

Just wanted to point out that someone could have received both ample generosity and ample harm from the same person. These things are not mutually exclusive.

That said, you are fully justified in being frustrated and exhausted from people ranting at you, especially if they're not checking in beforehand as to whether you are open to it.

Might be time to set some clear boundaries and/or get some distance.

You should not be listening to gossip because then you become the participator of it.
