Ok, big epiphany today.
I was complaining. Then I noticed that somethings, I complain about. Others, I don’t. What’s the difference?
For me, complaints seem to be statements of where in my life doesn’t seem under my control. Even when complaining about myself (“Darn these love handles”), I only complain about the things I have trouble with and perceive as being something I can’t change.
Is this universal? Are your complaints expressions of control frustration?
What are your favorite complaints? Is there any pattern about what we all consider under/not under our control?
