Complaining

Often we’d rather complain about what’s making us upset than actually do anything. Complaining feels good, yet if it’s not coupled with a meaningful call to action, it’s worthless. 

After all, committing to take action means we’re now on the hook.  No hiding anymore. We’re now responsible for something. Even if it’s small, we’ve staked our flag in the ground.

I get it if you want to make the choice to do nothing. To accept your fate without railing against it. To decide that it isn’t worth it to rock the boat. To upset people.

But if you’re not going to do anything about it, stop complaining.
