People seem to enjoy complaining… but often not to the perp!
There's a difference between asking for a remedy to a bad situation and just enjoying the sound of a good kvetch.
The first one puts you out there and can create high visibility and make you a target, but perhaps get something fixed…
The second is basically enjoying the sound of your own voice.
Some of us learn in our families and societies to 'step up to the plate' and try to make a difference…
Sometimes we really do succeed and help others and ourselves - sometimes not.
Sometimes we get applause - sometimes not.
The important thing is to decide what feels right and legitimate to you.
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas…
IMPORTANT NOTE TO SELF:
External bullies are about control…
Internal bullies are too!
If you decide not to take a step in dealing with something:
Support your decision. No self scolding!
If you decide to take a step and make waves:
See the bullies who try to shut you down for what they are - mostly people who don't want to deal with whatever you are bringing to the light!
