8 Things We Should Stop Spend Less Time Complaining About

1. Your appearance

Complaining about your appearance is just a wasted opportunity for building your own self esteem and learning to understand your own beauty. I get that we all have days where we don’t feel so hot and that most of us have something we’d change about the way we look, but both of those decrease dramatically the more energy you focus on liking your appearance as opposed to harsh self-criticism.

2. Boys

I’ve kind of always been a brat, so I know how much not getting what you want sucks. It sucks not getting the morning text, the attention, or the relationship you think you deserve, but since we’re not middle schoolers in jean mini skirts and Hollister t shirts anymore, you’d think we’d stop blaming the opposite sex for all of our problems and disappointments. If there’s anything that my two decades on Earth have taught me, it’s that boys suck, and that girls suck just as much as them. We need to collectively grow up.

3. Society/The Media

As a communications major and political science minor, I know that there is plenty wrong with both society and the media, but it’s time to stop making generic, uninformed generalizations about society every time something bad happens and scapegoating the media for things we should be holding ourselves personally responsible for.

4. America

As someone who bleeds red, white and blue, I firmly believe that there’s nothing wrong with America that can’t be fixed by what is right with America in the words of Billy J. I don’t think that there is anything wrong with constructive criticism about American policies or that patriotism is believing that one’s country is incapable of wrongdoing, but I have a huge problem with my nation being defamed with ignorant, audacious statements by people that don’t know the Constitution from the Declaration of Independence. I also have a huge problem with people pretending that corruption or injustice are produced and manufactured exclusively by the United States.

5. The Drinking Age

It’s inconvenient that every other sovereign nation in the free world recognizes the drinking age as 18, and has a much more casual attitude towards alcohol. It’s ridiculous that an 18 year old American is legally capable of laying down his life for his country, but is deemed not responsible enough to handle a beer. It sucks. It’s dumb. But it’s also not that big of a deal. It would be great if that law was changed, but we’re all going to keep underaged drinking in the meantime, and if the drinking age is your legislative priority in amidst of everything happening in politics, you need to sort out your priorities.

6. How Expensive Makeup Is

Makeup is super expensive. Even cheap makeup is expensive. Drug store lipstick costs $8 that could be spent at my favorite pizza place for two slices, each the size of one of Nicki Minaj’s butt cheeks. But girls have imagined makeup into a basic living necessity, when it’s really not. If you want to wear it every day, you’re absolutely welcome to, but no one’s forcing you under penalty of law to spend your money on it.  It’s not even a basic aesthetic necessity for most people, but when people use it every day it becomes hard for them to see where the makeup ends and their beauty begins; in their minds, their beauty becomes synonymous with and dependent on makeup.

7. Judgment

People are going to judge you until the day you die, and instead of being mad at people for having opinions, you should live your life in a way that makes other people’s opinions of you irrelevant. When you believe in yourself and what you’re doing, you’re not very concerned with what people are saying about you.

8. Condescending adults

Millennials need to stop embarrassing their generation with this whiny foot stomping and demand of respect when collectively we’ve only proven that we’re good at complaining and taking selfies. Adults treat us like we’re stupid because for the most part, we are. Contrary to popular belief, taking SOC101 doesn’t mean you’ve got it all figured out yet.

  • New blog post about how getting into what’s essentially a grown up sorority after not being able to participate in Greek Life in college reminded me that it’s never too late to create the life you want; I know it sounds stupid on the surface but check it out anyway 🤪 — link in bio!
  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.
