“To complain is (your) nonacceptance of what is. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in power. So change the situation by taking action or speaking out. Leave the situation or accept it; all else is madness.
If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options:
- Remove yourself from the situation
- Change it
- Accept it totally
If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options. Then accept the consequences. No excuses. No negativity.”
