Please stop overthinking life like you have to have an answer to every feeling or situation. That’s not how life works. We figure it all out by just living. We learn what’s important and what isn’t by messing up, by missing an opportunity, by seeking advice and not taking it.
Sometimes we have no damn clue what to do, and that’s okay. Always trust your gut and know that everything works out the way it’s meant to. It always does. Relax; we were never in control anyway.
So you want to be happy? Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day. If you’re bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected. Stop complaining about how alone you are when you’re surrounded by people who actually care about you. Forget all the drama and let go of all the grudges you’ve been holding. Stop wasting time lingering over all that you could have, should have and would have done. Stop spending your days thinking of how much better you could do; stop longing for something that has been and always will be out of your reach. Just live the days as they come. Wake up every morning and smile at the wonderful day that awaits you. Take a risk for once. Let yourself be happy, because you deserve it.
1: Spend time alone. 2: Acknowledge your efforts and accomplishments. 3: Validate your feelings. 4: Speak to yourself with respect. 5: Identify and fulfill your needs. 6: Forgive yourself. 7: Be honest. 8: Accept yourself for who you are. 9: Set and keep boundaries. 10: Stop comparing yourself to others.
Set backs are apart of the journey. They’re not signs to stop. They might burn a little but serve a greater purpose which you will discover once you make it to the other end. Don’t give up on yourself.
Most of our lives move at such an accelerated pace we don’t always have the time to stop and reflect on how far we’ve come. We are usually too busy looking ahead. But it’s so important to keep checking in with yourself. We change all the time. It’s easy to get caught up feeling dissatisfied with where you are when you don’t take the time to appreciate how far you’ve come. You don’t have to be exactly where you want to be, but the fact that you are on your way is remarkable. Good things and progress take time.
Make today all about celebrating how far you’ve come in your life since last year. What is something you’ve changed in your life that you are proud of? Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be. (Not my words.)
This thing called “Humble bragging” must stop & please don’t do it if you are reading this. Many people have a way of bragging while pretending to be modest. This is called humble bragging. You’ve heard them before, the girl who makes fun of her ridiculous diet when she wants to draw attention to her attractive figure or the guy who complains about how terribly he plays when he wants to make you aware of.
Such people use self-deprecation to hide their boasting but others can see through this. This behavior is especially dislikable because they are not only bragging but they are also trying to deceive others.
