Complaining about constant complaints

in
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

You deal with it, or you don’t. That’s just the way life is, at least in my line of thinking.
But in this day and age of ever-prevalent social media, negative bloggers and talk show radio hosts who believe their feelings are the only ones that matters complaining seems to become a way of life for many people.
I don’t get it. I agree much more with the words of Maya Angelou, who said, “What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.”

“We’ve done everything we’ve got to do,” he said.
But turning the 107-year-old building into a community art center will be a slow process, he said. That’s because the city doesn’t have the estimated $1.5 million-plus Walker estimates it’s likely to take to bring the Renaissance-style building back to its original look.
