Not getting what you want?
Wishing things were different?
Have a list of complaints that is long enough to make a short book out of?
A list of grievances makes me a whiny queen. A whiny me, is an unhappy me. Like when we were children, whiny behavior meant some need was not being recognized like being tired and in need of a nap.
Being an adult doesn't mean I no longer have needs or that I alone can meet all my needs. Being an adult means I am responsible for knowing my needs and doing my best to get those needs met.
For instance, when I am not included in some way I feel disappointment. Therefore, I have a need for inclusion. My responsibility is to voice my need for inclusion whether the outcome is favorable or not.
As a human being I depend on others for resources....
Sometimes, I get whiny and pouty about matters I have no control over or perceive I have none.
Too many unrecognized needs add up to many grievances which lead to very angry human behavior.
In the past, to preserve some 'love,' I turned my anger in.
The key is to recognize the needs before they turn to grievances and result in behavior that seeks to right wrongs.
We are human beings with common needs and desires. Why inflict unnecessary hurt to each other?
When basic common human survival needs for safety, food, rest, and shelter go unmet they lead to stressed out and highly anxious humans.
Stress and anxiety make any human capable of behaving in unpredictable ways.
Violent incomprehensible acts are expressions of unmet survival needs. Graffiti or the writing on the walls by a few, expresses what many think and feel.
We need to be heard rather than being blamed, judged or punished.
We are humans with a caring nature who become whiny, angry, depressed even disturbed when justice does not prevail.
Rulers, leaders and authorities have responsibility to hear the grievances of the citizens they have jurisdiction over. We all have a voice to peacefully express our unmet needs.
Do you believe suffering is inevitable or justified on this planet?
Can our grievances as a humanity bring us together?
Do you know what your ultimate human grievance is?
Praying for leaders around the globe and all humanity to unite in caring for one another.
