How Complaining Kills Happiness

Don’t complain about your clutter and disorganization. Do something about it. Clutter and disorganization may also be killing your happiness. Fix it. You can do it.

For our honeymoon, Laura and I went on a 10-day Mediterranean cruise.

On the ship, we made friends with another honeymooning couple from Canada and ended up spending quite a bit of time with them, chatting in the cocktail lounge and going on shore excursions together.

We quickly learned that this couple was not easily pleased. They complained about their room; they complained about the food; they complained about the destinations we were visiting in Italy, Spain and France.

At first, it was fun to join in with the complaining. After all, there were things we didn’t like about the cruise, too. We bonded by grumbling.
