Rule #4: Complain Only Every Other Day

So yesterday when I had breakfast with some of my coworkers I noticed myself complain more than I’d like to see myself complaining, we were all collectively complaining (ex. about people who were rude) and most of our discussions involved good and valid points…but still, I didn’t like seeing myself complain as much as I did. I thought it was unattractive of me to do so. The reason is in part because I reminded myself of one of my least favorite people and didn’t like having that person reflected in myself. I think complaining has its place in this world and can even connect people. Change happens when people think things can be better than they are, that’s why I’m only being allowed to express complaints every other day. On some days one has to allow the world to be as it is and seek out peace, whereas other days one can see the world for what it is and unapologetically seek to change it. This rule is to help me seek out more peace and more self-contentment while not changing who I am or the things I stand for. I’m not sure yet when I’ll first enact my rule for myself, I’m afraid of failing to follow my own rule, but hopefully very soon.
