If you enjoy the company of someone who’s positive, versus spending time with someone who complains, you’re not alone. You have probably experienced how being around someone who complains all the time can be draining and sometimes downright frustrating. But how often do you, yourself complain? If you find yourself complaining constantly, it can be an extremely hard habit to break. But when you do overcome it, you’ll be surprised at how much happier you and those around you will be.
Just as being negative or complaining excessively can bring down those around you, focusing on positive things can make others happier and more positive themselves. So just by avoiding being negative, youвЂ™ll actually be helping your family and friends! Trying to find something positive about a situation youвЂ™d typically complain in will also make you happier, and hopefully change the way you look at the world.
If you are in the habit of complaining, try to break it by finding something optimistic to say instead. Next time youвЂ™re about to complain about something, rethink what youвЂ™re going to say and try to find something positive about the situation that has made you unhappy. It is amazing what a positive attitude will do for your life and your relationships with others!
You may not be a complainer, but even if you arenвЂ™t, you can still strive to be a more positive person, for your sake and the sake of your family and friends.
