Trust: "When words and actions don't match, pay attention to the actions." -Victor Cheng
Complaining: If you're going through a tough time, give yourself 10 minutes a day to complain, scream, whatever, in private. Then no more for the rest of the day. If anything comes up later, save it for tomorrow.
