If you spend a second complaining, you have wasted a second.
It might feel good to complain but literally no progress is being made. It also shows that you’re dissatisfied with Allah’s qadr (fate) he has ordained for you.
All of us in life will go through good times and bad, the one thing we must not do is complain. There’s another saying that whatever you focus on will be true to you.
You can probably find a million ways you’ve been cheated and no one is denying that these things didn’t happen. But what can you do today that’s going to change the past? It does you no justice to feel bad or pity yourself. How about instead we learn from the past and thank Allah for the lesson that can be learned from these experiences. It truly is a blessings of Allah, we just need to see it as such.
If you instead switch the question around and ask all the ways He has blessed you, you’ll have a million different reasons to praise Him. Learn to thank Allah from the smallest of things like the lace on your shoe to bigger things like your health, wealth, and family.
Allah is not limited, he is the most gracious and most merciful. You can ask for all your heart desires (as long as it’s permissible). What we need to mindful of is to desiring something and invoking Allah but then having a fixed expectation of the outcome.

It’s the rigid expectation which taints the soul. If we make dua with the mindset that it will be fulfilled and it is not, we can grow bitter and here shaytan plays his tricks in your mind by saying things like “why does he not listen to me” or “why am I not deserving”. We balloon up with negative emotions.
We should make dua and ask Allah to bless us with happiness, success and whatever is good. But if the opposite of what we expect comes true we have to learn to say Alhamdulillah and accept our fate. Surely Allah knows what’s best. To wish life to be any other way then it currently is, is foolish. Until you learn to make a time machine to rewind the clock, there’s no point to dwell on what could’ve been.

May Allah Bless You Dua and Quotes
One day I was behind the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) [riding on the same mount] and he said, “O young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice]: Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, then ask Allah [alone]; and if you seek help, then seek help from Allah [alone]. And know that if the nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, they would not benefit you except with what Allah had already prescribed for you. And if they were to gather together to harm you with anything, they would not harm you except with what Allah had already prescribed against you. (an excerpt from hadith #19 of the 40 Hadith of Al-Nawawi)
