Stop complaining about the people that you choose to be with

Nairobi - Every time I hear someone complain about
their partner I am usually just like ‘shut up’. I do not sympathize because at
the end of the day, it was your choice. No one forced you. No one insisted-or
maybe they did but you are a grown up with choices.
People have this habit of acting like they
were taken into a relationship as if they were blind folded the whole time.
They have too much to say. They complain about the character, they complain
about the habits, they complain about the looks or the change and they just
complain about everything. I can’t even sympathize when someone starts saying
things like, ‘she used to beat me’ or ‘he is such a drunk’ as if you did not
If you know such a person, some of you need
to give people a reality check and tell them that it is not their partner but
them. You only settle for what you choose to settle for. No one forces you. You
need to let someone know that they are the idiots if they let other people use
them or make them miserable. Or you can
just tell them like I do, ‘Shut up.’ If you cannot use those words, then you
might just as well stare and let them know that you are not here for it.
