Be a man, and take it like a man, dammit!

So lately I’ve been feeling a bit down in the dumps.  Lots of stress coming from everywhere and that led me to be a real unpleasant person to be around.  Nobody wants to be around somebody who complains all the time, and my wife, bless her heart, is an angel for putting up with my ceaseless complaining.  Luckily, something clicked in my head and I now realize that I have got to grow up and be a Man, and act like one too.  Nobody likes a whiner, and losers don’t get anywhere.  I don’t want to be a loser, or a whiner, so I have to pull myself up by my boot straps and quit worrying and complaining about things that I have no control over.  Misfortune, misery, disaster, the Man has to punch through it and carry on.  Carry on without complaining.  Deadwood’s Al has great advice on this subject:
