I want to know why people complain about everything wrong in their lives. I have a friend who has been complaining to me about how she struggles to pay her house payments, how she struggles to pay for food and gas and her house is falling apart and she doesn’t have enough money to pay for the repairs. Every time I see her that is all she does is complain and telling me all her problems. I don’t know what to do. I am just listening to her problems and I don’t know how to tell her that everything will be okay. She says she believes in God and goes to Church regularly, but it doesn’t sound like it to me. Her tone of voice is sounds so discouraging and she never seems to be happy and makes me feel awful inside because I don’t like listening to her complain all the time I see her. I was reading some posts here and some people on the forum would say instead of complain say Thank you God for giving me the strength to work another day and that I have a job that help pay my house and Thank you God being here for me while I struggle paying all those bills. Everybody has tough times, but I realize complaining doesn’t make it better. I realize saying Thank you God for these struggles makes me feel better about everything because God will take care of me even through the tough times. I am asking for some advice and what I can do to handle this situation with my friend.
God Bless and Amen.
