Two friends meet and within five minutes one is overwhelmed by the other’s complaints. He complains about his parents, his brother, about not having a job, being single, having poor health, the lack of awareness of his neighbors and the arbitrary measures taken by the government.
There are certainly situations in life that one can complain about. Complaining can help us release the pent-up tension created by the event. The loss of a close relative, unemployment, divorce or illness are painful experiences that make us want to complain.
“There was once a man who explained how terrible his life was, but preferred to complain about it rather than change it.”
