We only have this life that we’ve been given. We shouldn’t be so focused on ourselves, and everything we want, that we miss the greater picture of our purpose.
Complaining may give some relief, in regards to, we get something off of our chest. But understand this “relief” is brief. Nothing has been dealt with. More often than not, we become bitter by constantly scattering the seed of compliant.
Arguing doesn’t solve anything. Words spoken harshly, often, aren’t truthful at all. Thus defeating the original purpose of an argument. The wanting to be heard.
(AKJ) Proverbs 16:24, “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.”
If you want to be heard, then be willing to listen first. Not with barriers, but openness.
If you want people to listen to you as well, then speak softly and gently.
Only then do we strive for improvement and being an example to others. ❤
(NKJ) Philippians 2:14, “Do all things without complaining and disputing.”
