It makes very good sense to consider why you aren’t happy. After all, it’s much easier to cure a problem when you have an understanding of some of its causes and symptoms.
Now it’s possible you may have some unique issue that’s wrecking your sense of well being. In that case, some serious self-reflection is in order. But my guess is you will be much, much more likely to find the root of your unhappiness in the list that follows. These are the things that drag the vast majority of us down, so take a minute to know your enemy!
You are a Worrier
The world can be roughly split between worriers and warriors. Those who over-worry are, of course, much unhappier. Now being a “warrior”, in this sense, has nothing to do with things like violence or the military. It’s all about having the courage to face what life has to offer. How much time a day and night do you spend worrying? Don’t you think there’s much more constructive ways to spend your time? Of course there is.
You are a Grudge Holder
There’s times in life when people do things to us that are downright nasty. It’s a fact which we can’t escape. What we can escape however is how we react to these situations. By holding a grudge we release a sort of slow poison in our own system that’s guaranteed to slowly kill our happiness. Not only does this NOT effect the person who did us wrong, but it actually damages us on top of whatever wrong we initially experienced (real or imagined). Forgiving and forgetting has been universal spiritual advice for a good reason. It keeps us happy!Remaining content is for Members Only Want more? Join Us!
