5 Ways to Complain Less

We all complain as it is a part of human nature. In fact, there are times that we complain and do not even realize we are doing so. That is why it is important to pay attention to the words coming out of our mouth. There is life and death in the tongue and it is one powerful force that can change the course of one’s life, literally.

Even if you (I) believe whole heartedly that you (I) Are (am) the happiest person in the world, you (I) still complain sometimes. Now, all you (I) need to do is admit it and own it.

complaining has to be one of the most powerful forms of bonding people as misery loves and appreciates company. The mere fact that someone understands our complaint is somewhat liberating. It makes us feel good to know we are not alone in our thinking.

This past weekend, I had to visit the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) because what I needed to take care of could not be done via mail, web or a kiosk. I had to deal with the pain of the DMV baby.

When I arrived at 7a.m. for an 8a.m. opening, I was astounded that there were like 250 already in line. I immediately went into complaint mode. I mean it’s 2015 why don’t they have a better handle on this? Geesh, does everyone have a car? God, how long is this going to take? My entire Saturday is gone, blah, blah, blah.

Since I had texted the DMV upon my arrival, I was number 235 which did not impress me much. However, It was not until I showed the guy next to me that I still had 170 people ahead of me that I was humbled. He giggled, showed me he had 383 people ahead of him (me being one of them) and helped me to realize I am better off than so many and that there are people who would love to have my number.

So, I am making a conscious decision to do my ‘absolute’ best to minimize my complaining and came up with five ways to do so. And, I’m sharing them with you Beautiful Souls today:

1. STOP JUDGING
2. DON’T OVER COMMIT
3. ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY
4. STOP OVER THINKING
5. TAKE YOUR TIME
6. CHILL OUT

I will allow you to reflect on each of the above and receive the revelation that is meant just for you.

Move Forward In Righteousness XOXO❤

Yulunda G!

    I LOVE complaining – I feel it lets out whatever I am feeling and bestowing that curse towards others; lmfao. It’s what I do only with people close to me though. My bf gets a bulk of it – I’m grateful always but it’s fun to complain when I’m feeling overwhelmed. Like right now. That I’m on call.. For the next week.. OMG No relief until next Friday!!?!? Where is it?!?! Why can’t I skip time?!?! Ok I’ll stop now. Have a great weekend gorgeous Yulunda! -Iva

      I Love It. Yeah, we will never be complaint free as it is necessary but some folk, OMG, they just keep going and going and going! Make that money $ Iva. I’ve been moving for the last few weeks and baby, you already know. LMBO 😂

        LoL I agree chicka complaining is necessary but there is a LIMIT and some folks really don’t know what that is. It’s when they complain of really stupid shit that I’m like stop and look around : YOU’RE A LUCKY ONE. So yeah don’t get me started on gratitude I definitely try to keep that “I’m blessed” attitude on point since we are in NO position to complain, not I anyway and that’s who I focus on. Good luck moving lovely!!! Better get some friends drunk and fed and get them to WORK!

  • I like your observations and your attitude. It’s really better to find the positive in trying situations as you did. Complaining can be “fun” but rarely is it constructive and can lead to stress. So being positive is best.

      Hello Beautiful. Yes, I try to be positive about everything every chance I get. Yes, complaining feels good at times but is so wrong! LOL 😆 Thanks for swinging by!
