No one likes to be around negative energy. It only dampens the mood. And that is what happens when someone complains. As empathetic or sympathetic one tries to be, there is a limit to that. If the first thing out of a person’s mouth is a string of complains, it is hard to see that individual in a positive light. And even if you have been friends for a long time with someone, if most of the time you meet, one of you is always complaining about something, it is going to take a toll on the friendship. There is an idea that you can be your true self and let go with some people and that these are the ones that you are supposedly lucky to have however, one needs to remember that a relationship is not set in stone and the heart has its way to move as it feels like it not as it ‘should’. So the next time you want to complain to someone, do one better. Come up with a solution to it and mention that as well. That way, you can let out whatever is in your heart and at the same time, not affect your reputation.
