A Surefire Way to Stop Complaining

seinfeldAs Jerry Seinfeld once said, “People, they’re the worst!’

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:

  1. 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.
  2. People mistreat others because they don’t feel good about themselves. They don’t feel lovable, worthy, good enough or empowered.
  3. 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!

  1. You raise some good points here. I am not sure that I completely agree with the third one “People are doing the best they can with what they’ve learned” as you can always break away from your past and change if you want to.
    However, that is from one’s own perspective (and learning to empower yourself) rather than looking at another person whom you cannot change.
    Great thoughts from this post. thanks.

    • Thank you Elizabeth, and I agree, people have the potential to rise above their misery, but most are so stuck in their emotional pain and conditioned thinking that they don’t see it. Typically, they need a personal crisis or awakening in order to inspire change.

      Have an awesome day 🙂

  2. I love this post Fred, I can’t agree more. Knowing going to work and someone will complain that it is too hot….. they did complain that it was too cold in April…. you can’t please people…
    Seriously I agree that complaining does not achieve anything at all, it does not make the situation better nor worse. People look for others to agree when they complain and they feel better. But that is it. Live in the now and enjoy! See the good things , be thankful! Let’s see whom I can stop complaining and change into positive views today!
    Have an amazing day Fred!

    • Thank you Ute. We’d be far better off if people understood the law of attraction. When the universe hears you complain, it sends you more experiences to complain about! Better to be grateful!

      Cheers!
