People prefer being victims too much to make changes

Isn’t it interesting that people often say they will pay for an ad-free social experience and when the opportunity arises, they don’t. Instead they slip back into familiar comfort and complain another day.

In some cases, people don’t need to pay anything, they just have to decide to try something new and make a change, which they rarely do because their current discomfort is so familiar.

It’s easier to complain because you can play the role of the helpless victim. Being a victim seems to imply a lack of responsibility for your victimhood and an apparent inability to change that, beginning with an uncomfortable decision to do something different.
