We often look for happiness in all the wrong places.
We hold on to so many things that cause us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering — and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy — we cling on to them.
Unfortunately, we complicate our lives to the point of being unable to recognize happiness when it appears before our eyes.
Starting today we will give up on all those things that no longer serve us, and we will embrace change. Here are 19 things you’ll need to give up in exchange for your happiness.
19 Things To Give Up For Happiness
Ready? Here we go:
1. Give up caring what other people think of you.
We know it seems counter-intuitive as we humans are primal pack animals that don’t want to be cast from the village; but spending time worrying what others think, is a waste of energy. You’ll never please everyone and it’s none of your business what others think of you.
Stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not just to make others like you. It doesn’t work this way. The moment you stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not, the moment you take off all your masks, the moment you accept and embrace the real you, you will find people will be drawn to you, effortlessly.
