Complainers grumble. Complimenters express appreciation. No one likes complaints, but everybody likes compliments. Go to work in the compliment department.
More compliments and fewer complaints would improve any relationship. Life goes better if you make a grateful list and a to-do list, before a complaint list.
Life is a gift to be treasured; not a purchase to be complained about. Complaining is mental pollution that hides your solution. The best restraint for your complaints is to bask in your blessings.
Asking, “What’s wrong with this?” leads to complaints. Asking, “What’s good about this?” leads to gratitude. If you train your brain not to complain, you’ll be happier.
There’s little comfort in complaining. It mostly just annoys other people. There seems to be no shortage of things to complain about. Complaining is a great way to cultivate frustration, disappointment, and anger.
Gratitude offers no complaints. Complaining chases appreciation away, replacing it with judgment. Complaints provide excuses for being unhappy, but don’t make misery more bearable. Welcoming unwholesome thoughts is the Trojan Horse of mental oppression.
To mope and complain is a drain on hope, but gratitude is the attitude of encouragement. Pride produces complaints; humility produces gratitude.
The more you brood,
The worse your attitude.
It will put you in the mood
To fight and feud.
You can choose.
Win or lose
Don’t blow a fuse.
Trust it’s something
God will use.
