Dont get me wrong....I love and appreciate my family. But....whenever I talk to them, I always find myself listening to their negativity about things, or voicing my own complaints because they will listen.....Every phone conversation with my mom or Grandma always turns into a gripe fest from them or from me. Aside from alienating myself from them....what can I do to change our conversations? I feel that this is a major hurdle in my life....and a tricky one! Thanks everyone!.
