horse of a different color

Many people narrate their days using the language of complaints. They describe almost every event and circumstance by telling about failures and obstacles. In doing so, they cast an unnecessary shadow over themselves and the people they talk to. In case this is you, think of a recent complaint of yours and rephrase it so that your account emphasizes success, progress, or a person who has helped you. See how different this new story sounds from your usual story.
