Complaining: Can I just quit it?

I’m doing the self-pity work and exploring the different shades of it in my life.

Is complaining the same as indulging in self-pity?

Do you think complaining (to myself in my head, or to my husband) is something I can just decide to quit, like worrying?

Or is it something I need to take a hard look at first, to leave no stone unturned?

Would it be a good idea to use the workbook on self-pity and replace “self-pity” with complaining?

Thank you Brooke!
