Dear James instead of responding myself to you i'll let this expert do it for me cause i still don't know why people like you aren't happy in this beautiful world !


Written by M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

Why do people complain so much
In my previous article Why do people complain all the time i said that some people complain instead of taking responsibility because they are afraid to test their self worth or admit their mistakes.
But there are other reasons that motivate people to complain and that has nothing to do with taking responsibility.
Why would a beautiful girl complain all the time about girls who try to imitate her style and looks?
Why would a rich man complain about bad eye all the time?
Why would the first in college complain about the difficulty of the studies?
This is why those people complain so much
In the Solid Self confidence program i said that each and every person living on this plants wants to become stronger, more resourceful and if possible superior to others.
People have varying ways of doing things, some people do it by making extraordinary achievements others do it by putting people down while a third group does it by complaining so much!!
But what does complaining has to do with feeling superior to others?
Complaining is an indirect way of talking about ones achievements without being caught!
If a very beautiful girl said "oh look how beautiful i am " everyone will hate her but if she complained about girls who imitate her she will be asserting her beauty in an intelligent way.
The guy who complains about bad eye all the time actually wants to remind his friends of his superb achievements that are worth a bad eye. By the way i do believe in bad eye but i am talking about extremes of behavior.
people who complain about the stupidity of others are actually trying to say that they are very intelligent!

well if your getting the cheapest struts that means they are going to be oem equivalents which means you might as well just leave you cut coils on your car, as oem's are not designed for lowering springs and will blow out and probably kill you or some innocent by standard.... don't be cheap! save your pennies and get the proper suspension, or dont even bother with it.

Loaded? Ya right. I built my car on a minimum wage budget at the age of 16-19. Its called SAVING money for WELL PLACED mods. Not throwing money at tons of stupid cheap @!#$.

+1 Paying for the car and insurance doesn't leave much money for mods, but patience does. There is plenty of time in the future to modify the car.

I hope you never work at a parts store I shop at. You do realize that you are posting in a thread that is titled "cutting coils, dumb idea, not safe!" and bragging about how you cut your coils?

Well hey, somebody has to flip burgers
