A soft rant is similar to a rant in that it's a long-winded, one-sided outpouring of difficulties the person is facing. However, while a rant is usually done in anger or frustration, a soft rant is done in a more depressed/disappointed/hopeless manner.
Example: I've been having a lot going on in my life, and I thought maybe a soft rant might help me get some of it off my chest.
Example: Sigh. Okay, readers, I'm going to soft rant about some of the things that have happened recently.

Hard rant about taxes:
The f*cking government thinks they own us! They shove as much onto us as they possibly can and think we'll just accept it and move on with our f*cking pathetic excuses for lives. Well, no - not this time! I've had it up to here with their f*cking lies and excuses, and this time, they're gonna hear about it! I work my f*cking ass off all day in a miserable, dead end job, trying to feed my wife and kids, and then the f*cking government steps in and steals it all!

Soft rant about taxes:
Well, I understand the government needs to protect us and all, and give us our schools and libraries and roads, but do they really have to be taking so much? I just don't know what to do anymore. I have a minimum wage job with no chance of promotion, yet I'm trying to feed my family and still have enough left over to move out of my small apartment. Just when it looked like it couldn't get any worse, my car breaks down. I'd have money to fix it if the taxes weren't so high, and I've cut our budget down to the bare necessities. I have nothing left to give. I just don't know what to do.
