The world is what it is. And we are who we are. To lay a generality upon a whole... Well, it's truly not fair. We are each individuals and have our own experiences to draw from. Though, I shall beg pardon if it does seem like I am complaining. Rather, I would believe thinking this through. However, to each their own.
There's a lot that any one of us cannot do because we are but a single person. In general, complaining doesn't help. Though, if done constructively, it can help to relieve stress. And, with the right minds put together, there may be a chance that the complaining may be turned into ideas that one might be able to implement on a personal level. One step at a time. And what does this "something" that we've done have to be? Anything? Then what of simply changing a negative energy into something positive? Less stress right there. To each their own on how they go about it.
In my mind, and I could easily be wrong... However, in my mind, there's not too much room, if any, in which to judge. We've each been guilty of complaints at one point in time or another. There's something that we each view that could be better. At least those that I've talked to have given me this impression. And if there are those that do not wish to actually do something about what they're complaining about- and I wouldn't type that to only one type- then that is their problem. The best that can be done is to ignore it and carry on. We can only deal with ourselves. We are not the saviors of our fellow man. However, this has only been my rant in question. Thank you.
I have no idea who I am. All I can say is let's rock hard.
Personally, I just like to complain. I'm notorious about being able to find something good in any situation, but that was something I consciously developed. My complaining skills are natural. If I didn't have anything to complain about I just wouldn't be happy. I am definitely one of those people that would complain about winning the lottery. So generally it's best not to take my complaining too seriously.
If I'm complaining, I'm either letting off steam or trying to work out a solution while I talk or maybe trying to figure out if I'm being unreasonable (sometimes I am). I do act when I'm ready. If wanting to do right by people even if it makes me uncomfortable is masochism, then I guess I am. If I complain while I go an extra mile, well, what can I say? I'm human. Sometimes even if someone is your brother they still get heavy. That doesn't mean you drop them.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
No. I'm typically not a complainer..and it may be because of my type, or it may be the way I am being raised. My father has little tolerance for complaining, because we a spiritually strong family and can get through any struggle this world can offer, which leads to the little complaining, if any, that I carry out.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Didnt this thread die lie a billion years ago?
Quit with the mental self mutilation. I still like ya. So no need to get down on yourselves about the masochism thing. It's no big deal.
I hate you. Dorito?
Masochism: your avatar + my framed picture of Ice Man - the harsh reality that Val is no longer the most beautiful man alive = the sadness. I stare and I weep.
Me, age 16: [setting Ice Man on my bureau] Bff Shorty: [standing next to me]
[silence] Shorty: [solemnly laying picture flat] He's just too beautiful. I can't look at him anymore. Me: [small tear] Indeed.

Tee. Lets talk about this and get it settled for once and for all.
Eff: Ok. Now. Let's talk about it from THIS angle. Then THIS angle. . .

Ditto. I wonder if this liking to complain is just an INFJ thing and not an NF thing? Actually, I think a better word for what I do is "critique" and not "complain."
Yes to the OP. I'm addicted to emotions, both good and bad. I would never wanna surpress them or ignore 'em, no matter how much of a wreck they turn me into. I enjoy the highs and lows, sometimes too much. Makes me feel alive
