Do you find yourself complaining a lot lately?
The world is a dangerous place and while it's easy to complain about the state of the world, it doesn't really help to lament. Actions speak louder.
I have a tendency to complain when hit with an obstacle. I look to the sky and scream, "Why me?" Seriously, I have to rein myself in. When I don't control my angry tirades, I notice that people take a step back and let me be. The more I whine, the less time friends have for me.
We all have busy lives and are dealing with our own bouts of life's ups and downs. It's fine to vent but it's better to allow your venting to be momentary before getting a plan of action together.
The next time you feel like complaining to anyone who'll listen, ask yourself what steps you can take to get through whatever is going on. Be grateful for what you have and realize this is only a stumbling block on the road of life.
