Complaining

There’s no point complaining about things you cannot control. You just need  accept them as they are.

As for the things, which you don’t like, but you can control. Don’t sit and complain. Do something about it and change it.

Complaining should never be your option!

Whether we realise it or not, we complain a lot. The weather is too hot/cold, I got very few likes on my recent Instagram post, my boss is a jerk, my job sucks, and oh, don’t get me started on how much I hate what’s going around the world,and the list can go on and on…

But, what’s the point of complaining when it cannot fix anything? Infact, it’s a waste of your time and energy. Even your friends and family members get irritated when you complain all the time.

So, why do we complain?

Because we lack perspective and take things for granted.

Many people these days are complaining about being stuck at home due to this pandemic spread. But, what they fail to realise is that being able to stay at home with food and your family members is a blessing. Not everyone have this luxury. There are people out there who can’t afford to stay at home, there are people who have no where to go, there are people dying from this disease and then, there are people who are risking their life to fight this virus, while we are sitting comfortably in our homes. So, instead of complaining, we should be grateful for what we have, and appreciate this wonderfully blessed life we are living.

So, before you complain about the food, remember there are people who are dying because of hunger.

Before you complain about job, remember there are people who don’t have any money.

Before you complain about being stuck at home, remember some people don’t even have home.

Before you complain about your terrible day, remember some people didn’t get chance to live this day.

Let’s express gratitude for what we have and realise what a blessed life we are living. 💫😇

  1. We always see people who are better than us and complaint about our lives, forgetting that there are many who don’t even have half of what we have right now.
    And you truly said that so many people are complaining about the lockdown and are becoming frustrated and are even attacking people who are there to protect us. They do need to understand that these policeman, doctors etc are putting their and their families life’s at risk so that we can live safely inside our homes.

    1. Exactly! Comparison is easiest route to unhappiness. And if can’t help but compare, we should compare our lives with people who are less fortunate than us.
      And yeah, it’s really disheartening to see how people are behaving these days with all the heroes who are fighting this virus for us. All we have to do to help them is to stay at home and give them the respect they truly deserve.

      Also, thanks a lot Shruti for sharing your insights❤ Stay safe and stay blessed 😇

  2. Sooo true! Complaining is a result of lack of perspective. People who always complain don’t try look at things differently.

    Before people were complaining about Work/Studies stress or lack of time and now there isn’t any stress yet everyone is complaining.

    We can use this time in so many ways. Not necessarily we have to build so many skills or come with Abs on our belly but we can start something.

    (People are even complaing about who are trying to use this time to learn something new or be better)

    1. Exactly! Looks like people have become habitual of complaining. You give them exactly what they were complaining about all day long (lack of time for self care) andthey’ll find something else to whine about.
      I wish people couldsee what a wonderful opportunity it is to slow down, introspect, reinvent yourself and do many more amazing things.
      Thanks Sumeet for your sharing your views. Always happy to hear from you😊
      I hope you’re doing great. Stay safe and stay blessed 😇💖

  4. This is a much needed post! And you are right! I complain a lot too, maybe just to myself but that also counts! We kinda sit back and complain even if we can do something to change the situation. And when we can’t, yeah acceptance makes us feel peaceful.
    I hope you are doing good! Take care! ❤️😊

    1. I don’t complain to others but yeah, secretly even I complain to myself (sometimes) 😅
      I think once in a while, venting out is still good but complaining is just waste of energy.
      Yes, I’m doing good. I hope you’re doing good as well. It’s been a while since we last talked. If you’re free these days, let’s catchup someday😄 Take care dear❤

      1. Exactly, it is a waste of productive energy. Good to know you are fine. I would love to catch up with you. I have missed you!
        Of course I am free, there’s not much to do these days anyway. I have my own Whatsapp now, so I can text you, or we can go old school too(meaning e-mail!) 😃😃😃

  5. In addition to your ideas, I think feeling bad about your job, food or current lockdown situation is a valid feeling. So is complaining, but this comes from a place of hate. There is the component of seeking better for ourselves, and there is the other component when you see success in others but not in ourselves. The best way to combat this is through being present and accepting of your own situation– you’ll just be surprised how well you’ll be after these steps. Following and looking forward for more!
