The direction toward taking charge and initiating change in your life can help you go from complaining to contentment. It just takes some practice and dedication on your part. The power in taking personal responsibility for your complaints entails owning your actions rather than griping for the sake of hearing yourself vent. The idea of this may sound appealing to you, but you’re probably unsure of how to get started on transforming your mindset.

Look Beneath the Surface

Moving past just complaining will be easier once you realize what’s at the root of your complaints. This step is important and requires brutal honesty with yourself. Usually, people’s complaints have a root cause or problem. They usually go beyond the surface. For example, if you find yourself complaining a lot about the ways people treat you, chances are good that you may have some underlying feelings about yourself and your worth at play here. Perhaps you aren’t feeling very good about yourself, and you’re projecting those feelings onto others. It could also be that your expectations are unrealistic or that you are doing something to turn people off. Identifying the cause of your complaints is necessary if you hope to move past them.

Know What You Want

Once you’ve come up with some ideas regarding the true reasons behind your complaints, it’s time to figure out what you want instead. If you determine that you have unrealistic expectations of others or that you simply aren’t showing much empathy, you can take action toward changing those things. The next time you find yourself complaining, think about whether you can go easier on the person who seems to be the source of your frustration. Show some compassion and try to put yourself in their shoes. You might discover the problem isn’t really worth complaining about, after all.

Move Forward

After taking the time for some self-assessment and planning, it’s time to change your attitude and move forward. You’re probably feeling better now that you’ve put things into perspective and have a more realistic picture of the situation. It’s empowering to take control of your responses. You now have the ability to decide how to proactively handle frustrating situations in a way that is healthier and more productive than pointless complaining.

Getting a handle on your complaints and turning them into a plan of action is one of the best things you can do for yourself. You’ll boost your contentment, put forth a more positive image, and move forward in your life in ways that just weren’t possible when you were stuck in a never-ending loop of negativity and complaints.
