Pet Peeve #026 – Full-Time Positions Needed: Rant-er & Whine-r

This isn’t exactly a pet peeve , but I do get disturbed (& quite perplexed) by it quite often.

Here’s what I don’t get. Why do some people rant, and bitch, and whine, and moan about a thing they hate in their life but does nothing about it? I mean sure, it is in the human nature to vent out your feelings once in a while. But, if you whine for the same fucking shit over and over again, don’t you think it’d be more productive to just do something about it??????

For example (I could think of a million but let’s keep it simple, eh?) –

“I hate it. I hate that my boyfriend hits me. I hate that he slaps me around. I hate that he kicks and punches me. I hate that he emotionally abuse me. I hate that I feel like I’m responsible for his anger. I hate that he cheats on me, and blame it on my shortcomings. I hate that I’m in pain all the time.”

Is there a solution?

Of course there is. Let Dr. Sullen help you out here.

LEAVE HIM. Do it in person, do it over text, do it over a phone call, do it over email, just do it. Just leave. You feel like you don’t deserved to be treated like that? Okay, cool. You take the first step to improve your life. It’s your life. You need to make the change. Because, surprise surprise, he will not change. You want to be happier, you got to change. Pretty much a common sense.

It really is that easy. Stop trying to complicate things like “Oh..but i love him…” Yeah okay, but are you happy? or (this is the crowd favourite!) “But..but..he don’t mean it..he loves me..he just can’t help it..” C’mon man, put some sense in your brain, you’re smarter than that.

When you want to make a change, there is only really two things to consider:

  1. Do you really want the change?
  2. Or do you want to stay where you are?

Your decision. Yours alone.

Easy Peasy,

Sullen
