Show Notes

Had enough of the verbal vomit? 

Feel like you have "please share all your complaints with me" stamped to your forehead? 

Or, perhaps (now be honest here) it is YOU that is contributing to all of the negativity noise? 

It's hard not to. It's day number 178 ...give or take...of our Global Pandemic..and what we thought might be a few weeks of lockdown has turned into a new way of life.

We are all either hunkering in place, working from home, trying to home school children with virtual learning, or having been displaced from a job and worrying about how to find our next one in a horrific recession. It’s enough to make even the most resilient of us feel overwhelmed and out of control.

 I don’t know about you but I have found myself and many of those that I love and interact with- in a constant state of complaining. Irritability, burn out and a collective world wide trauma seem to have eroded our patience and many of us want someplace to vent and let it all out. Are you feeling that way too? And if you are a people person, or a people pleaser, it seems that every toasty and irritable friend wants to seek you out to unload. 

That's why in this week's episode of the Empowerment Boost Podcast I dive into the 5 most common reasons people (or ourselves) complain and what we can do to mitigate the damage it does to our people pleasing listening ears.
