UNHAPPY? Do Something About It!

Lately I've been getting a little annoyed with people who are always complaining about how bad their lives are. They are too ugly, too fat, too poor, can't find a guy/girl, don't get enough get the idea.

Of course, I am not referring to people who are dying from terminal illnesses  or something THAT bad. I'm strictly referring to people who are "Debbie Downers". Those who everytime you make a statement always come back with a complaint about how rough life is to them. Oh, POOR YOU.

Sorry, but nobody lives a perfect life. NOBODY. Well, maybe Beyonce'.
No, I bet even SHE has bad days. I'm not saying that some people don't have it REALLY bad, but for the most part , if you look at what you dislike in your life, I can bet there is going to be SOMEONE who has it worse.

Here's the thing. If you are unhappy about something in your life, you can do one of two things.
One: you can start taking steps to changing what you don't like.
Two: you can shut the fuck up.

I don't mean to be rude, but when I was fat, I didn't walk around saying "man, am I fat".
Sure, I wasn't happy, but for a while I didn't really mind it enough to keep telling everyone about it. When I finally DID get to the point that I WAS really unhappy, guess what I did? I  DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
 Guess what? If you start eating healthy and start exercising , it turns out you will lose weight and become fit.
Now maybe that is an easy example of how to make changes in your life for the better.

Here is another example. You aren't happy at your job. Now I know with the current economy, not everyone can just quit their job and find another they like that pays the same, but you can make other changes. Maybe you can go back to school and further your degree. Maybe you can look into what it is that is making you miserable. Is it the pay? Is it the people? You can always make small changes that will help make it just a bit more pleasant or at least tolerable for the time being until you CAN make bigger changes.

Some people may argue that they can't change the way things are. I have a word for those people: "LAZY". There is ALWAYS something, no matter how small, that can be done to make things a little bit better. The important thing is to TRY. If you aren't willing to at least do that, than you need to just stop complaining. If you try and fail then you at least made the effort. Not trying is just good enough.

One thing I know for sure, before you change anything, you might want to consider changing your ATTITUDE. Maybe the reason you are so unhappy is because you never think about the GOOD things in your life. There are challenges everyday, but there are also many good things we all have to be thankful for.

 I will leave you with this famous quote from a very wise woman:

Trust me. Redheads know best.


  1. I could not agree more. Make the necessary changes or shut up.

    1. Thank you. It just gets tiring hearing people complain when there are things they can do to change the situation

  2. I love this! So true. I'm proud to say that I'm a changer, not a whinger, and I don't like listening to other people whinging. Just sort it!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. Much appreciated!
