It is important to catch complaining in its tracks and not allow this state of mind to feed off other people’s negativity or indulge in your thoughts. When you find yourself complaining, ask yourself these questions:
Do I want to die with a complaining mind, and if not, what must I do now to assure the ending of this character pattern?
What am I feeling right now?
Am I able to hold these emotions or do they seek further justification in outside events?
Am I perpetuating these emotions with self-pitying thoughts?
Am I seeking others to confirm my aversive world?
