When things aren’t going the way we want, it’s often easy to play the blame game in order to deal with our frustration. We’ll usually stop the complaining and the blaming once we figure out it’s not really improving our situation.
A better approach for when times are tough is to look at what needs to be done to turn things around and then put your energy into making it happen. A simpler solution would be to use that energy to do something more useful.
For example, many people find that when they’re stressed, working out gives them an outlet to release that stress while improving their health at the same time.
When life gets you down, you can either make things worse by using it as an excuse to sink even further or you can try to make the best of the situation by finding something more positive to do.
It’s fine to sulk every now and then but just keep in mind that things don’t usually get better without your focused effort toward making it better.
