The kind of habits we have define us.
It is not so much as what we don’t sometimes do, and it is all about what we do. Sometimes, it is vice versa. Regardless of the order good and bad habits appear in your life and priority, some habits should be unlearned lest it drains the energy and life out of you.
What are these habits, you may ask? Here they are, and we hope you are not practicing any of them:
Worrying too much
The thing about worrying is that it never does anybody good. If anything, it makes the situation worse, and you end up thinking the worst. When this happens, you get scared for no reason, and you lose control of the situation. Don’t worry and let things be and you will be surprised that things do fall into place in the end.
Insisting on giving unwanted help
Give help when needed and don’t insist when it is not. Sometimes, even though we mean well, our efforts are not appreciated, and we end up getting hurt and worse, the bad guy. Don’t let this happen to you. Don’t insist on helping people who do not want to be helped and believe it or not; you will be happier.
This is a sin committed against yourself. Stop pleasing others because you will end up the miserable one. Keep in mind that the people who care about you need not pleasing. The ones who don’t care also do not deserve your time and attention.
Reliving the past
What happened in the past is in the past for a reason. Stop going back there and move forward. The habit of dwelling in the past is not healthy, and it is the very thing that is stopping you from appreciating the beauty of today and the promise of tomorrow.
Why do you hate yourself when appreciating who you are is easier? Don’t insist on wanting to be perfect and hating yourself because you are not. The best thing you can do is be who you are the best way you can be. That is all the world could ask for. Remember, when you hate yourself, you become unhappy, and you invite others to have the same feelings towards you.
The key to unlearning these bad habits? Stay positive and make the best out of any situation you are in. Most importantly, love yourself and don’t please people.
