Can you go 24 hours without criticizing or complaining? Can you think of any reason why you might want to go 24 hours without criticizing or complaining? What are the benefits of criticizing and complaining?

Thank-you for your honesty. We all have a tendency to try to tell the rest of the world what is wrong with it and how to fix it, don't we? But, we aren't so strong at looking in the mirror and identifying our own faults. oh well .. someday we might all become perfect .. everyone except me, that is! :)

i have stop complaining and criticizing for over three months and it has changed my life. it changed the way i saw my role in life and the way i viewed other people. instead of talking about the things i didn't like i talked about the things i did like in them, and that made me see them and life in general in a whole new bright wonderful light.

I can't see the point in complaining unless it for a genuine reason. For example if you buy a meal and there is something wrong with it, you might make a complaint and ask for it to be changed. I can't see the point in just compaining and criticising about things for no real reason. I think it is far better to find things to be grateful and thankful for then things to complain about.

Excellent points. There is a positive way to "complain" about bad service or bad products or food. I've been with people who have to make their complaints in a mean, humiliating way to other people. Those are not the kind of people I want to be with, nor do I want to be like them.

I see absolutely no benefits to criticizing anyone for any reason. As for complaining, if you truly feel you were wronged, you can do it in a constructive manner without upsetting anyone.

Isn't it amazing how critical people get offended when they themselves are criticized? But, criticism fulfills the Law of Attraction. If we are critical, we will attract critical people. If we are positive, we will attract positive people. The best way to make sure that critical people don't want to stay around us is to be very, very upbeat and positive .. it drives them crazy! Of course, they usually are too busy talking to hear the positive ... oops, I'm being critical! LOL

It is a difficult task but i think everyone must try to cut down on the number negative statements we give out everyday. Instead we must start checking what we say and turn negative statements to positive and productive statements.
