Why Are You Complaining?

Have you ever stopped to consider that those things which make you discontent, frustrated, and unsatisfied. Someone else would be overjoyed to experience, or have. For example: You may have a mother that continually irks you because she makes you embarrassed you in public. Many orphans would be thrilled to undergo those same embarrassing moments for the privilege of having a mother who loves and cares for them.

Your car/appliance/computer gives you difficulties. It’s unreliable or slow and causes you a lot of frustration. There are thousands of people that would welcome the opportunity to have a working car, dishwasher or computer.

A little perspective is always good.

We take for granted the softness of our life but shame on us for being discontented with what we have, when many others would be more than pleased to trade places with us.
