complaining that feels justified


The other day someone broke into my office. They completely shattered a floor to ceiling window. I called the police and they came over, my assistant and I cleaned up all the glass, then I had window repair people come give me a quote and board it up. I spent the entire day in victim mode complaining about the situation. I complained to my assistant, my neighbor, my husband, my mom, my sister and they all commiserated with me. This is a real life example of something unexpected that I felt justified in complaining about and I’m having a hard time coming up with a thought that would have prevented self-pity. In question 10 of your podcast guide I had written “things happen, challenges are inevitable” but I wrote a question mark after it because I didn’t feel sure.
