Why are there so many complaints in the world? Why do you complain so much? Of course, from your point of view, you are justified. Life has not all been as you thought it would be and is supposed to be. I understand this, yet it is not your place to fuss about Life. Complaint breeds complaint.
Complaining is looking at Life from the outside in. Let’s face it: Complaining reveals quite a lack of gratitude. Complaining may have become a way of Life as if you believe that complaining is a virtue.
You may come across as haughty while you perpetuate yourself as a victim. You can’t be haughty and a victim at the same time. This just isn’t a good practice. It is like practicing poor posture. Of course, bad habits creep up on you. You can also accrue good habits of greeting Life. This is up to you. Who else would your Life be up to?
You are not an innocent victim of Life. You play a part. You play a role. If you don’t like what Life gives you, change your stance in the world.
There is a world, and there is a God, and there is you. By and large, your Life is what you make of it. There is no virtue in complaining, for, then, you become defeated and, in some lackadaisical sense, even proud of your malaise. How badly you are treated. When you complain that you are unjustly treated, you treat yourself unjustly. You wallow in mistreatment. No one confines you. If you are confined, it might be you would rather stay as you are than change half an inch.
You can wait a long time for the world to change while you play your old violin.
Life can actually turn on a dime. Set the tone. Complaining simply is not worthy of you. You can gripe all you want, yet what good does it do you? Griping keeps you where you are and where you SAY you don’t want to be. Don’t stay in the same place then. It would seem that you have tethered yourself in discomfiture and won’t let go. Your battle-cry is “Unfair!”
Choose a new battle-cry. Never underestimate your own power for good in the world.
Bite your tongue. Heretofore, you have been blabbing overmuch about the difficulties you face. Blah blah blah. Come on now, folks, head in a new direction. If you would like your Life to become more agreeable to you the way you say you do, then welcome your Life to change. Invite it. Change your tactics. Renew your choices. No lolling around like a star victim. No longer take solace in the unfairness of Life. Take a new tract. Champion yourself. You can do it. You are the only one who can do it.
If you want to eat a ripe plum, reach up and pluck it. True, a ripe plum can fall from the tree right into your lap, yet don’t wait for the plum to drop. Life doesn’t have to prove itself to you. Better that you prove yourself to Life.
If you want to be a star athlete, practice. Don’t be laissez-fair. Take your own pulse. Rise to the fore.
If you are in a rut, get out of it. Be responsible for your Life. Make your own luck. Forage for yourself. Be beholden to yourself. Take a new direction. Hop to it!
