How many times a day do you complain outloud? How about silently in your mind? Stop and consider: What does complaining do for us?
This is something worthwhile for all of us to consider. If complaining serves no purpose except for creating or continuing negativity, then let’s remove it from our lives. It reminds me of the quote about forgiveness... “Not forgiving is like drinking rat poison and then waiting for the rat to die.” In the same way, complaining is reacting to an unfavorable situation, and compounding it.
When a ref makes a bad call and a player complains about it, the ref never changes their mind, and the player is less focused on the next best action. If someone cuts me off in traffic, and I complain and yell, it does nothing to solve my problem! It only makes me more agitated and probably a worse driver. When you don’t get what you want, and you choose to complain, you fail to look inward at your controllables in the situation and instead focus on blaming something external.
