仕方がない (Shikata ga nai / It can’t be helped)
This “it can’t be helped” mind set may be an explanation why Japanese have this great ability to NEVER complain.
Everything is simply “Shikata ga nai” or “shō ga nai (しょうがない)”. A long wait, a bad situation at work (e.g. a bad working atmosphere), … all of those can’t be helped so why complain? Just deal with it.
It is very debatable whether this is a good or a bad thing.
Good because it makes people just go on, bad because somehow it makes you not seek for “better”. (for one’s sake)
Japanese culture, so unique, right?
