Being happy gives us a sense of joy, well-being, contentment and gratitude. Also when we are happy our focus shifts from negative to positive things in life hence reducing our tendency to complain.
“The more we complain the more unhappy we get.” – Dennis Prager
Ever imagined how different would our lives be if we stopped complaining.
Complaining is the expression of dissatisfaction or annoyance about something. It can be for a valid reason or simply out of habit.
Complaining out of habit can be harmful to us as it involves constant ranting about how unfair life has been to us. A person complaining out of habit thinks everyone around takes undue advantage of them and can always blame someone or something for their situation. Habitual complaining can have a negative impact on our lives. It is not good for our physical and mental health.
A person used to habitual complaining tries to gain sympathy by always talking about how bad the world is. It can become a self-defence tool for him as we humans always find it difficult to admit our own faults.
We all know old habits die hard but with persistence and by following some simple techniques we can try to stop complaining and start living a meaningful life :
When we complain our focus and attention is on the problem. Instead, if our focus and energy are on the solution, we will not have any time for the complaint.
So let’s try to live the beautiful gift of life, that God has given us, to the fullest ….. !!!

How destructive relationship habits such as complaining, criticizing, blaming, nagging, threatening, punishing and bribing/rewarding hurt relationships
I was reading a book called, “Getting Together and Staying Together”. The book highlights the destructive relationship habits such as complaining, criticizing, blaming, nagging, threatening, punishing and rewarding / or bribing . Which one of these behaviors is your favorite?
We use all of them at one point or the other for sure in all the relations we share. As a mother, I would add one more to the list and that is Guilt. It seems to be the favorite behavior of mothers. It goes something like “After all I do for you can’t you do this form me?” or I have actually heard some mother’s play the childbirth card, which goes like “You know I was in labor with you for 36 hours! All I am asking is this one thing!” (more…)

Our lives are always revolving around the thinking of log kya kahenge – what other people think of us. Is this really necessary or important?
Each and everything we do is based on this thinking. We are habituated to this and we don’t do a single thing without this speculation. From the day we are born; we hear this from our parents and elders. This, of course has both positive and negative influences on us; especially for women this is more relevant as our society has set some barricades for us which as per our so called society we should not break this walls.
