Stop complaining...

Note to self

"It is said that a human individual is born crying, lives complaining, and dies disappointed."

For heaven's sake, stop complaining - at least for a day, for an hour, for a minute minute or for a second. Please. It's so draining and debilitating, not only for you but also to the person you are complaining to. There is a big difference between simply stating your concern and complaining. The nagging, defeating attitude that is part of complaining is unbearable.

There is a simple self-help technique to reduce complaining. Take a nice stiff rubber band and wear it around your wrist. Every time you complain, stretch it back nice and far and let it go. The sting from the rubber band will remind you to stop complaining. Do it a few times and next time you feel like complaining, you will automatically look at the rubber band and tell yourself not to complain. It works!
