- Stop for a moment. Ask yourself: “Are things really that bad or am I just complaining for nothing?” Come up with all the good things you have in your life. Take responsibility for your current situation. Figure out a way to change the part of your life that may be holding you back. Blaming others is never going to solve your problems. Don’t you want your situation to change? Have a gratitude ritual. Do things that make you happy. You deserve it.Say “thank you”. Gratitude is an attitude. How’s your attitude toward God? .
