People love to complain. We complain about the weather, our jobs, our friends (say what?), our finances, our boss, the traffic, professional athlete’s salaries, government, banks and corporations. But, other than creating a lot of negative energy, does complaining really accomplish anything?
I agree. It accomplishes nothing!
If you want to stop complaining, just remember these three things:
- People (governments, banks, etc, are just people) behave inappropriately because they are not conscious … they don’t understand the truths of who we really are or why we’re really here. For instance, they don’t know that we live in oneness with all that is.
- People mistreat others because they don’t feel good about themselves. They don’t feel lovable, worthy, good enough or empowered.
- People are doing the best they can with what they’ve learned. If you grow up experiencing anger, hatred, abuse and violence, that is what you give to the world.
When you know these three things, what is there to complain about. “So-and-so is acting like a dumb-ass.” “That’s because he (it could also be a she) doesn’t feel good about himself.” “Oh ya! Right!”
Before you complain about something, ask yourself this, ‘is there something I can do about it?’ If there isn’t, or if there is but you don’t plan to take action, then please don’t complain. All you’re doing is making yourself unhappy and creating unnecessary negative energy. Rather than complaining, focus on what you’re grateful for. You’ll feel better and you will be enriching the experience of the collective.
As for traffic and the weather, you can’t do anything about it, so what’s the point in complaining. Empower yourself by adopting an attitude of gratitude!
Have an awesomely grateful day!
