I think they’re just not giving you enough information.

Deal with it basically means: This event happened. It’s not going to change. Hoping won’t change it. Complaining won’t change it. The only thing we can do is move forward.

What happens instead is sometimes we get stuck in the past. Concerned about how something should have gone. Or what could have been if things were different.

You don’t have to “deal with it” if you don’t want to. You can continue to ignore the truth of reality and focus on the unchanging aspects of it. Or you can take a step forward.

Favorite anime having licensing issues? Find something else to entertain you in the meantime.

Prof takes too long to put up vital information? Ask a classmate. Google the info. Fail the assignment due to not having the info and take it up with the department head (scared to be assertive? Start small and build up the skill)

Worrying about the future/the planet/society? Start volunteering your time for issues you care about. Donate to charities. Start a blog.

Also read the book “a complaint free world.”

There are many good insights about accepting the world as it is and being productive with that insight. Friends and other supports can be helpful, but realize that doing what you’ve always done will get you the same you’ve always gotten.

Life isn't boring, it's beautiful. The fact that you are alive is a miracle.

Stop complaining. If you read, give this book a try.

Definitely start writing, every single day. Try to write down things you are grateful for and goals you want to accomplish.

Spend more time outdoors. Nature is powerful medicine. Just go to a park and walk, and while you are walking force yourself to smile.

Remember, nothing changes overnight. Focus on small, achievable goals, and go from there.

If it makes you feel any better, a similar method is explored in A Complaint Free World where instead of flicking, you just move the elastic/hair band to the other wrist...and the goal is to keep it on one wrist for 21 consequetive days without having to move it. That way, you've broken the habit completely! You may want to check that book out.

I have worked in negative environments before, mostly just downtrodden people with no interest in communicating, but now am fortunate enough to work with great people and a great culture.

However my missus continues to work at a place a little similar to yours, with constant complaining. It's contagious, she caught it and started bringing that shit home.

I don't know why but she ended up purchasing this book, and now swears by it. It has a cheesy wristband that you wear and every time you complain you change arms to make you conscious of just how often you complain.

Now it doesn't sound like you need this, at all, but she was managed to pass the book onto colleagues and now there's several partaking in the cheesy wristbands. I think that's pretty cool, cos complaining without doing anything else is destructive and completely unhelpful, you need to work towards a solution.

I'd just like to throw out there that we're not typically the self-help reading type, and that I've never actually read the book, I hear it's shit.....

Good advice.
Just finished reading this and thought it very though provoking for those that are chronic complainers (myself included)

Found some extra items to add to his list:

  1. A book to help him use his biological voice instead of the chain-smoking Kermit the Frog voice he uses:

    (That Thanksgiving podcast where he skyped in and you could barely hear him was the best one yet - he didn't dominate the conversation with his droning monotone microphone-swallowing voice that happens on the rest of the podcasts.

  2. This next Amazon item would help Alex to stop making terrible jokes like "that's a thing" or others where he basically reduces creativity into a Jon Lovitz-style "It Stinks!" soundbyte which sounds hilarious to only him.

    Edit: Downvote away, I'm not joking. Alex ruins podcasts with his affected voice and endless pursuit of negativity. As Giant Bomb transitions into a source of entertainment from a source of information, these two books would help him with two areas where he detracts from entertainment. Take solace, Alex: In the words of the Beatles, it's a fool who plays it cool while making his world a little smaller. Rejecting 99% of everything doesn't make you more interesting.
