"Do something about it or shut the fuck up."

July 28, 2016

I heard this little gem the other day and kind of blew it off as some cold blooded shit, but the more I thought about it, the more it resonated with me.

This phrase can be applied to just about everything in your life. You see people bitching about their problems on AskMRP, on reddit as a whole, all over your home and personal life, you've probably even been guilty of this from time to time.

Your wife is texting a coworker she has a crush on, you have a dad bod, your coworkers walk all over you, you're balding, the kid won't do his homework. Hell, even small day to day shit: the one barista puts too much cream in your coffee, the gas station you frequent smells like dead hookers, your refrigerator makes an annoying ticking sound. Do something about it or shut the fuck up.

If something is worth bitching about, it is worth acting on. I'm almost certain nobody has ever become great by crying on the internet (or to themselves, for that matter). And if you have absolutely no control over something, it probably isn't worth your time to dwell on it forever; you're better off directing that energy elsewhere. So when you hear that voice in your head start complaining about something, just tell yourself to do something about it or shut the fuck up. Either way, you will be better off.
