You can tell a lot about person, based on their complaints.
“My husband makes me so mad.”
“I hate my job.”
“I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!”
Our complaints can reveal the victim in us. They can expose us as blamers. When I spend too much time grumbling about something, that something has control over me.
Let me encourage you today: rather than complaining, do something about it!
Think about your biggest issues. Is it possible that you can take action that will, in some way, improve the situation? Can you communicate better with your spouse? Can you try to improve the conditions at your job? Can you begin eating better and resting more and working out – to improve your health?
While I am not saying that we can fix all of our problems, I am saying that complaining about our problems is counterproductive. Let’s be proactive and positive. If I can harness the energy that it takes to complain and channel it toward solutions, things will surely improve. That problem won’t go away unless you do something about it.
You have complaints? Join the club! Now, let’s do something about it.
