29. Stop Complaining
So many people complain about small everyday things. They might complain about the weather, traffic, or the quality of the meal that they ate last night. If you’re reading this right now, it means that you were living in a first-world country. You have access to the internet and you are an educated person. This means that you have so much more than so many other people in the world, and you have things to be grateful for. By focusing on gratitude instead of complaining about your life, it will become significantly better.
Also, put yourself in another person’s shoes. Do you enjoy hearing other people complain? No one does. We just want to tell the other person that it’s not so bad, or to get over it. Try to take the perspective of someone else. If you truly cannot get over something, write it down on a piece of paper. This will help you vent, but it also gives you the ability to see your problem from an outside perspective.
