one more common complainer is the “perfectionist”.
you cannot please this person. i mean nothing is ever right for this person. it is never good enough for them.
and their favorite phrase – “is that the best you can do?”
proverbs 27.15 (tev), a nagging wife is like water going drip, drip, drip on a rainy day.
did you hear about the lady in a restaurant who asked the waiter, do you serve crabs and he said, “lady, we serve everybody”.
proverbs 21.19 (tev), better to live out in the desert than with a nagging, complaining wife. and of course husbands, too!
a man said, “i’m dog tired” and his wife said, “well it’s because you growl all of the time”.
nagging perfectionists. nothing is ever right. always arguing. nothing destroys the warmth of a home faster than complaining. nothing destroys the harmony of a marriage faster than complaining. nagging doesn’t work. it just makes everybody upset.
have you ever thought that if your kids are complaining continuously, that maybe you are setting the example? you taught them how to complain.
make a family pact that says, we’re not going to complain. in this home complaining is outlawed. your family is not perfect but it is your family. and you’re not doing any good by complaining. you’re not helping the matter by complaining.
just a thought from the front porch…
