Don't Whine Online

The title of this post says it all. If you blog, or use social networking sites like Facebook, Bimbo Bebo, and others, please follow this very simple rule that will keep all your "friends" happy: Don't Whine Online.

Whining about personal issues, whining about the weather, whining about how your husband has to work lots of overtime hours to bring in the big bucks, and whining about how much you hate your job. Please, no more! Nowhere is the "if you can't say something nice" idea more important than online.

Life is tough. You're only allowed to whine if you're a baby. We're all adults, in a grown up world, and in a great country with lots of opportunities. There are resources at hand for every problem, and no excuses for not properly dealing with them. If there's really no solution, fine, deal with it as best you can, just don't whine.

Best of all, ask your friends for support. With as many friends as some people have online, surely some of them might be supportive and be able to help you get through whatever it is that's bothering you. Better to get help from some friends in person than to broadcast your woes online for all to read. You'll be happier, and so will all your friends.

Technically, it is possible to whine about whining. However, a whine directs the listener to somehow feel sorry for the whiner.

This post does nothing of the sort. It tells whiners to stop whining and lets them choose whether to accept or reject the idea. If they choose not to, it is no loss to me. Nobody is asked to feel sorry for me.

So... not a whine!
