Complaining can be a very good diagnostic tool for identifying the actual problems in our life. The key is not just to sit around complaining about the same things year by year to learn how the important issues affect us and how to fix them.

Awareness of the major flaws in our situation and mindsets allows us to make a strategy for how we want to address them going forwards and build a life we don't complain about.
