Are you caught in the cycle of constantly complaining? Today we show you the secrets of how to stop complaining about everything and you’ll be a better person as a result.

With the advent of the online world, it seems everyone has an opinion and a need to share it. The level of interaction gives way to drama, whining and complaining. You only need to look at the comments section of facebook pages for proof.

The negativity is toxic and far outweighs the positive. Too much sugar, not enough cheese, is the general response and that’s on the 30-second food videos! Have we lost our ability to improvise?

Try Viewing Things Differently

This quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln regarding rose bushes shows that a different viewpoint can be found in everything. You can complain about the thorns, or you can celebrate the roses.

A good change to make in your life is to stay away from those that feel a need to constantly comment on everything. Avoid these negative Nellie’s at all times. Only engage with people and content that has a positive effect on you.
