How annoying is it when you find yourself around someone who keeps whining, complaining, bitching and moaning…it’s annoying, right?
I’m sure at times we’ve all had our go at being that annoying whiner.
I will be honest, when I’m around someone who is chronically whining, complaining, bitching and moaning it’s as difficult for me as it is for anyone else.
The energy of those conversations is awful. If we are not conscious of it, we can often find ourselves becoming the whiner. Have you caught yourself being in that conversation and having a whine about the weather, the traffic, how tired you are?
The truth is, it's boring and if that is you, you become an energy vampire. You are sucking your energy and everyone else around you.
Time to write out a list of the things that you are whining about? After reading your list and adding to it over time, if it’s something that you can’t change, such as the weather or the traffic can you let it go?
If it’s not in your control, why let it control the energy that you are sharing with the world.
We then have to start making a conscious shift to not whine and when we catch ourselves about to start, can we breathe, possibly bite our lip and let it go.
If you catch yourself whining about things that you can change such as washing the car, cooking or doing the groceries, this becomes a great indicator of any areas that are not bringing you joy.
If they are not bringing us joy how can we either delegate the job, choose to change our attitude and perspective and find some joy in the task or maybe make a compromise with a friend, partner or roommate to share the job.
I love cooking but I hate cleaning up the kitchen. When I lived in a shared house, we decided that I would do the cooking. I’m certainly happy to share my cooking, if my roommate will do the cleaning up. She loved this, it’s a win win for both of us as she loved my cooking.
If you are having a bitch about how busy the supermarket is on a Sunday night. Why go on a Sunday night? It’s the busiest time, why not mix up your schedule so that you can go early in the morning when it's quieter and the produce is fresher.
