A few years ago I became very aware of how much complaining I would do about big and little things. So I decided to limit my complaining to see how I felt and what difference it would make in my life... It was huge! It wasn't until recently that I started to think about what complaining does to the people that listen to it. So I took some time and I really started to pay attention to how I felt while listening to someone complain and also to notice the persons energy when I was complaining about something… and boy is it not pleasant; complaining is a dis-service. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am not saying there isn't a time and place for complaints or airing grievances, sometimes it feels good to complain about something and you need to get it off your chest but maybe just be a little more mindful of how and what you complain about. Another great thing to do is to ask the person in front of you if they have to space themselves to listen to you complain for a bit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It seems the world has a lot to complain about right now, be mindful of the energy you are adding to the collective 💕
