Curb Your Complaining by Accentuating the Positive

To stop being a 'complainer,' give your remarks a second thought

Okay, I'd be the first to admit that on the surface, there is a whole lot to complain about these days. I won't list them all here because I like to keep my posts under a million words. But we know what the big ones are. When we add in our own little pet peeves, it’s pretty easy to be complaining all the time.

But that is incredibly unproductive. It's also unhealthy. It robs you of your joy. It steals your creativity. It makes you less fun to be around; I mean, let's face it, we don't even like ourselves when we're in complainer mode.

It is so easy to fall into the complainer trap. We often do it without giving it a second thought. Someone asks us how our day is going, and we launch into a stream of everything that is wrong in the world. All that accomplishes is making the person regret asking us in the first place.
