"Although he makes some comical references in how he explains this syndrome, its content is actually quite serious.
For the author, the background of all these complaints can be found within a certain context. Specifically, people with a very sensitive socio-economic situation and linked to a very difficult life story. This is the trigger for the complaints. In fact, he claims that, behind them, thereís often real suffering, an emotional grievance thatís been repeatedly neglected.
Yet, while this is often the reason, many people can be particularly irritating to their loved ones. Their tendency to see everything in black shows an unyielding pessimism.
However, there are also other people whose complaints show a constant need for attention that can be quite difficult to handle."
