Since I started to focus on helping people become more aware of happiness in their lives, I’ve been much more aware of the happiness of the people around me too. I’m sure you would experience the same thing. It is driving me to look at individuals more attentively and pay attention to their actions, their sentiments, and how that seems to fit. It’s been interesting and has given me some fresh insights on this whole happiness thing.
Something that’s struck out in the past few weeks is that the folks that seem the most discontent with their lives and the least happy are the ones that spend a lot of their time and energy complaining. I’m sure you have a couple of those people in your life as well.
They are too busy whining about how bad their life is that they don’t have any time left to do something about it. Or maybe they’d rather complain than alter things. Either way, the remedy seems to be straightforward. Stop lamenting and start taking action.
Most people complain about the many negative things in their lives. They complain about the lack of money and how expensive things are. They complain about not being able to buy the things they want. They complain about their bosses, their jobs, their neighbors, their friends, their relatives, and even their partners. They complain and complain and complain, but they never take action to change anything.
The only true solace in life is action. If you keep complaining, then you’ll never change anything in your life. At some point, you must choose to do something about the negative things in your life. One way is to take control of your life by taking action, and the other is to sit back and do nothing. Which will you choose?
We all have times when we gripe about one issue or another. Sometimes we do it in our heads. Sometimes we rant with a close friend or family member. We groan, get it off our chest, and that alone helps us feel a little better.
That’s OK, provided complaining isn’t all we do. Sure, there are occasions when we grumble, feel a little better, and the matter fixes itself. But there are other situations when things won’t get better, and we won’t feel happier in the long run until we do something.
If you’re not pleased with your job, consider looking for a different position or even change companies. If you’re not content with your wage and it doesn’t offer you the cash to achieve what you want in life, go for that promotion, take some classes, and do whatever it takes to start earning more.
If you are stuck in a relationship that makes you unhappy, work on it, or take action to move on. If you’re not content with how your kids are acting, focus on your parenting abilities, and work with your kids to make things better. If you’re not content with the way you look and feel, try eating healthier and get outside for some fresh air and exercise.
It’s absolutely surprising how much you can mold your life for the better once you stop complaining and start taking action. What are you going to do today to make your life better and boost your long-term happiness?
We know that sometimes it’s hard to take action in your own life, and it is easy to complain about the many negative things in your life. The purpose of this post is to help you rethink about always complaining and to start taking action to change your life for the better. We hope that you enjoyed this post and are able to apply some of the aha moments to your own life.
