Groaning and griping are part of a regular day for constant moaners. If it’s not the scorching sun, then it’s the rainy day that messes up your life. If it’s not about traffic, it's the kids and the spouse who messed up your day.
People who thrive on negativity look for and stir conflict because they don’t want to be alone in misery. Peace and constructive engagement are foreign to their lives.
When you are stuck, you reject any information or feedback that challenges your status quo. You may react violently to fair and constructive feedback because you want to stay in your comfort zone. You bury your head in the sand because that is not what you want to hear.
People who are stuck deny opportunities presented to them — not because of the opportunities themselves, but because they take issue with who made the suggestion.
You might be stuck in self-pity or in fear if you are unable or unwilling to ask for help. No one under the sun is self-sufficient or independent of others, and people who don’t ask for help are hurting and won’t admit it.
Holding grudges, yearning for revenge, and wishing the worst on others are signs of lack of forgiveness. Forgiving is not about minimizing the hurt or transgressions visited upon you, it's about liberating you.
People who are stuck in the past tend to fixate on what they didn't do, rather than all the accomplishments they've achieved over the years. Because of this, you constantly dwell on past mistakes or missed opportunities and find it difficult to let go.
You tend to live in nostalgia and find yourself reminiscing about the past, longing for the way things used to be. Your mindset isn't focused on the present moment; rather, you dream of a time you can't go back to.
While everyone around you has made plans for the near future and far ahead, you refuse to. Instead of envisioning and working towards a better future for yourself, you're content with staying in your current situation or relying on past achievements.
