Incessant complainers are some of the most unpleasant people in the world to be around. I should know, I have been acquainted with a few dedicated ones and it is grim work. Sadly, I have even occasionally stumbled across that red line of bitterness a few times myself. At such a point I am not even good company for myself. On the other hand, the openhearted, keep their own counsel, try to see the best, accept things as they are crowd can be pleasant to be around and are no doubt, on the whole, more successful and happy in this world. Cultures that are in harmony with our natures thrive. Members of societies and institutions, with team spirit, or simply unconflicted when it comes to whatever structure happens to be in place, are the ones to whom good things tend to happen. People comfortable with the default path of human development and organization are always at a great advantage.
And yet we were given one gift. One gift that is only ours.
We alone can judge the gods.
I just think it would be a shame to waste it.
