I come from an extended family of complainers and criticizers. I never knew that because how we were seemed ordinary to me. We weren't mean to each other. We could be generous and kind, but there was a lot of complaining, and we were critical.
I mentioned this to a friend one day, and she said, "Well, that's just normal." It is normal, but it isn't helpful if we want our lives to feel more joyful and successful.
Join me as we explore what it looks like to jettison both.
