The Danger of Low Level Complaining
Some people complain often. It might be about the same few things or it might be many different things.
The problem with this is it teaches others this person is just a complainer. Once that has happened, the “complainer” is ignored or given lip service. It seems they can never be made happy, so why bother?
Another possible problem occurs when someone complains about the same thing over and over without getting more serious about seeking a solution. If they have put up with something for years, why would anyone think it really bothers them?
The way to deal with problems is to focus on one or a couple at a time and keep bringing it up until it’s fixed or you’re told it’s not going to change. Start off easy, then get more adamant about it over time.
