Chronic Complainers
Notes from the Dennis Prager Show
Prager Happiness Hour 5-13-05

- Complaining is toxic.
- Our behavior effects us first…you complain you destroy your chances for happiness first.

- It also affects others.
- Chronic complainers are the living embodiment of narcissism.
- Chronic complainers are toxic…not only make others around them unhappy…but
also themselves.
- They complain…but it doesn’t make them happy.
- Comedians complain…but they are making fun of themselves.
- The chronic complainer…doesn’t want you to laugh at them…but say woe unto you…
wants your sympathy.
- Always something to complain about.
- People think that life is great for the happy person…that they have everything.
- Instead the happy person has worked at being happy…being grateful and not complaining.
