I’ve posted before about recognizing my need to refrain from complaining, particularly at work. I’ve been reminded of this over the past few days. There is a relatively new co-worker who I’ve noticed lately has a tendency to complain. All the time. About everything.

I’m not sure if I just hadn’t noticed it before, or if it’s gotten worse over the past week. But I do know that it’s irritating as all get-out. Of course, that’s a big wake-up call to me that I probably sound as whiny and irritating when I complain. The sad thing is that today I found myself complaining about her complaining!

Since I’m a little higher up the ladder than she is, not to mention a decade older, I recognize that I need to set an example and fight the temptation to complain, especially in front of her. Prayers, y’all. Sometimes it’s hard to be the one setting the example!
