“The things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel.” Philippians 1:12 Focusing on what’s wrong can cause us to miss everything that’s good. God wants us to be discerning; we need to know good from bad, but He doesn’t want us to focus on the bad and become critical or discouraged.  Even in circumstances that are less than ideal, we can find something good, because in times of trouble God is still at work.  When your outlook is blurred by problems, focus on Christ.
