When you complain you automatically place yourself in a position of lack, of being a victim. That’s a negative energy that invites more of the same. Complaining takes you down. Like self pity complaining is self perpetuating and can even become addictive. It can be a really bad habit. You might think that something feels “good” about complaining. Perhaps the hope is if you complain enough someone or something will make things better. Consider this: complaining is something a child does because a child is vulnerable and powerless to take control. A child’s hope is his complaining may get his parent to make things better. Problem solving is something mature adults do because an adult has the ability to change things. Positive problem solving coupled with positive action gets positive results. So complain just enough to identify the problem. Then stop your complaining and solve the problem.
