10 Things To Stop Complaining About

1. The Weather

It snows in the winter, and it’s hot in the summer. Is either really a surprise?

2. Your Weight

You can accept your weight, hit the gym, or change your eating habits. Complaining won’t burn many calories.

3. Traffic

Find a secret route, take public transportation or move somewhere else.

4. Your Boss

Sure, he/she can be a pain, but he/she is the one paying you. If he/she becomes unbearable, get another job.

5. The Time

Never enough time? You’re wasting it by kvetching. Start prioritizing to make sure there’s enough “you time.”

6. Your Cell Phone Bill

Stop gabbing incessantly.

7. Your Hair

Get a hairpiece or a wig if it bothers you that much. Or move to Arizona.

8. Reality TV

If you don’t like it, change channels.

9. Boredom

Chances are no one finds you especially stimulating if you complain about being bored. Get a hobby. Seriously.

10. Plastic Surgery

If you don’t “support plastic surgery,” then don’t get it. No one is forcing you and you’re not going to change anyone’s mind who loves it.

What complaints are
YOU tired of?

    If you live in Florida you are probably a complainer. Please take your meds and enjoy the sunshine you drove hundreds of miles to complain about. JMHO Better yet, stay home next year and complain about how cold it is. Smile folks, we are all on borrowed time.

    Good article! Definitely gonna share this. Oh, my, have I got plenty of things people complain about constantly. It’s time to ignore the constant chronic complainers and live my life.

    Politics -OMG – aren’t we all over that constant dissing of the Prez? Get past it – no amount of whining is going to make his term shorter, iIn the meantime can we please move on and get a little something done for the general population’s good???

    It’s so true that you can gripe about the same things without even realizing how negative you are. I have friends who complain about the same things over and over to the point where I start avoiding them. The only thing I find alarming is not that it’s cold in winter and hot in summer but that we are seeing more and more extreme weather events that will only get worse every year due to global warming. Finally my late husband was known for his beaming smile that made everyone happy. Of course Japanese people are too polite to complain the way we do anyhow. I personally am not a natural hugger or a smiler but whenever I remember I try to put a smile on my face. At first it may seem forced but eventually it becomes second nature. Interesting topic and food for thought. Bess Heitner

      Morning, Bess,

      True about the Global Warming issue. I just heard there’s going to be another snowstorm in NY Sunday into Monday. I am not a natural hugger, either, but I do try to smile at people in the street…and I love to laugh. I’d rather someone not smile than be a faux smiler. 🙂

    I was in a department store one day when their computers went out and people went ballistic complaining because they couldn’t check out. A few shoppers tried to engage me in their misery and I avoided responding until I couldn’t take anymore and then I answered one with, “You know, worse things have happened.” She turned bright red and said, “Oh, you know, you’re right.” I nodded with a big smile on my face and left the store.
