"Quit complaining about life"
Posted 7/22/11 , edited 7/22/11
Someone on Faceboob put this as his status:
'People need to stop moaning and enjoy life, it's good :)! There's always someone worse off who'd gladly swap places!"

I tend to disagree and agree at the same time with what he said.
I agree that there are some people who just need to sometimes realise there are people who are worse off in life. It becomes irritating when someone just moan and moans about how their life sucks yet not willing to change it ( when they're in the position to actually make change and do something about it, that is) and constantly feel sorry for themselves.

But at the same time I disagree because people have a right to "moan". If things bother you, then you're entitled to complain.

Question is:
To what extent do you agree with his statement?

Maybe it's an indirect message to his wife?

Coming from a habitual complainer, I agree with the normal that yes there is always someone out there that has it worse than you, but should that really make you feel any better? So someone kills your family, then there is another individual that has everyone that knows him killed. Doesn't exactly make your life any better now does it? I sorta find this funny because y'know the whole thing where people get some amazing view on the top of the mountain sorta shows how insignificant our problems are compared to the vastness of the world, and they forget about their worries for a while, but in the end if you have a bad experience during that time, you'll eventually revert back you probably won't move on just from that if someone say... kills your family.

I'm someone who will complain to anyone that will listen, it's a coping mechanism and I think that's what it is for most people, but I on the other hand am someone who will listen to just anything someone has to say, even if they hate my guts and only want to insult me. So it's a give and take. I also find some good friends from it, everyone has their share of problems and complaining is sorta like...sharing your stories about life I think EVERYONE has their stories, so anytime someone says their life is boring I beg to differ.

In the end I think that everyone has the right to complain and everyone has the choice whether or not to listen. And in my opinion the person who said that is complaining in their round-about manner, they are pretty much complaining about others complaining just not in a super negative way.

I believe people do have the right to complain keeping it to themselves never ends well. No matter how small or how big the problem is they should really get help now another issue i have is that they should take action, because if they keep on complaining they're not solving the problem they're only amplifying it and usually the problems that people have aren't easy to fix but i still believe they should get help and make an effort. .

So my stance is they can complain but only if they're willing to take action to solve their problems if not then they're just wallowing in self pity and depression. People like that need a strong wake up call TBH.

I think when people complain, it's natural. For someone to say that I have to disagree to the extent that you don't know what skeletons lay in that persons closet every night they go to bed, or how that makes them feel. However I do believe in being grateful for the good in your life , because if you aren't grateful for what you do have then there are a ton of people willing to take your place if they could.

I see no reason why people are not allowed to complain. We all live in different circumstances. Just because I may have more or less than someone else does not make me any worse off or better off then they are. We all have negative emotions, just because you are homeless or starving or in some other crappy situation does not make the rich person's emotions any less valid.

In fact we dub people who seem to only be happy as mentally ill right?

When life is getting you down, figure out what is weighing on your mind, and relieve the pressure.

You will be much more grateful for everything after that.

I think people should feel free to complain. Others can feel free to not listen, unfriend, block, hide statuses, etc...

Well I agree with that statement to a certain degree, sure people have a right to moan but at the same time people don't want to hear it because, just that people have there own problems and hearing other peoples problems is the last thing they want to hear.

if you have a stable job or a good family or a steady income then there's nothing to complain about anymore. you should be thankful you're not homeless or jobless or suffering from cancer. what's wrong with us people is that we ask for too much. always envying, always thinking i want this, i want that. people should be thankful to have what they need.

I agree because if they have a computer to complain on obviously then they probably arent that bad off, some barely have clothes to wear.

Complaining to me is pretty much unproductive, selfish, and frankly annoying. I'm not all that content of where my life is right now, yet instead of bemoaning my existence like a bitch I contemplate on how worser off I could be, how there are others less fortunate than me, to be thankful for what I have, and work hard so I can change my predicament.

That's the thing about life: it's not set in stone.

True don't wine, you're better off doing something or keeping it inside until you can. Trick is to do anything even if you don't like it and stick to it like it's your everything. That's until something really get's you going in your life.

I've got pussies on my mind. Which kind?
