“I will never stop complaining.” ~ Margaret Cho, comedian
Can “complaining,” a word with such negative connotations, actually have its benefits?
In a world that appears to be full of so much negativity, there is a new wave of thought that people who are able to remain positive and optimistic are considered to be the most resilient. We may believe stoicism is a sign of a well-adjusted person who can “keep calm and carry on.”
While keeping positive thoughts about situations assists us with coping more effectively complaining may have its benefits as well.
Complaining is ubiquitous, everyone, everywhere at some point in time does it; no one is immune to its allure.
