I had a great post today. I was going to draw on my years of working with the public. I was going to highlight a big problem by using several amusing real life examples. My subject? Complaining. Then it hit me: I was going to put up a post that was nothing more than me complaining about people who complain.
I am so glad I realized the irony before I put it up. I guess my original observation that I am an optimistic person by nature isn’t true.
The only solution is to turn the pointing finger right back at myself. Because every example I was going to give also applies to me. So why do I complain? The same reason everybody else does.
We minimize our own faults while maximizing those of others.
And try as I might, I can’t seem to write any more without complaining.
So. I’m going to go and try not to complain.
Have a nice day.
