9 Important Things to Let Go to Be Happier


Every person in the world is dreaming about being truly happy and to enjoy this state of spirit for as long as possible. But unfortunately too many things stand in our way to the happiness and the first among them is a person himself. As it turns out we worry too much because of trifles, lose faith in ourselves, concentrate on failures and as a result set limitations and prevent the happiness to come. But life will be quite easier as you let a few things go and stop thinking much about them. Our happiness is what we create ourselves. And here are those main things you should not worry about to find your happiness.

1. Fear

Have you ever tried to do something you were afraid to do? If yes, then you must remember that special feeling when you manage to step over your fear. Well, it should be always so. It is not easy, I know, I was fighting my fears also and I continue to, but you will succeed. Fear is probably the worst thing ever as it limits a person, drives into a corner and shuts up all the doors leading to happy and full life. So pull yourself together and fight for your dreams and joy. Remember that there always are people by your side who will support you in the time of need.

2. Negative attitude to appearance

This is another obstacle most people face on their way to happiness. Stop worrying about your appearance and body shape. Just accept the fact that nobody is perfect but everyone is unique and beautiful and let it go. To keep fit and simply to look after yourself is never unnecessary but don`t become a fanatic. Your task is to learn to feel comfortable in your own body and love it no matter what. Then you will see that your every new day becomes brighter and brighter as you get that essential feeling of self-confidence.

3. Negativity

When you are in bad mood and with negative attitude to everything you attract all that unpleasant stuff to happen to you. As you change your attitude into buoyancy, you will notice how the whole world around you becomes a better place where you are doomed for happiness. At the same time, positive thinking will help you avoid depression and find new friends, new opportunities and new horizons. There is nothing impossible for you, if you truly believe in it!

4. No more excuses

That is another bad habit you should get rid of immediately. When you happen to be wrong, don`t waste your time for making excuses to justify yourself, just be brave to take the responsibility, learn that lesson and move on. Your life will become much easier, believe me. It is natural to be mistaken but when you meet the problem face to face and deal with it you are to be proud of yourself. Isn`t it a source of happiness to be always ready to face any challenge?

5. Other people`s opinion

It is very important to abandon that bad habit of worrying too much about people`s approval but it is also extremely difficult. To manage with this you are to remember that you live your life and you are free to do, say, behave as you wish. Remember, that only when you are in peace with yourself, you are able to stop thinking about other people`s opinion. Actually, experience shows that people never stop talking and you will be facing disapproval and disagreement from time to time, and this is normal. You can`t please everyone, and you are not to, so live your life and be pleased with it.

6. Image of an ideal partner

Having a reliable partner and a faithful person to love makes us immensely happy. But, unfortunately, very often the relationships get a crack because of trifles. We have a certain image of our ideal partner and the problems begin when the reality doesn`t meet our dreams. Don`t get upset about it, did you ever see an ideal person? Do you consider yourself to be ideal? The answer is obvious, so why losing your time and efforts for idle search or ruinous show downs? Appreciate what you have now, love that person beside you and do everything to strengthen your relations but not vice versa.

7. Constant complaining

Who hasn`t got problems? Nobody. Me, you and millions of people in the world have problems, tough situations and stories for everybody to cry on when get to know about. This doesn`t at all mean that you should constantly complain and moan about it. Complaints won`t help you fix the situation but quite on the contrary – you will end up feeling even more miserable. So focus on a solution or a way out and put aside all the negativity. I`m pretty sure that you are strong enough to face it and deal with any obstacle you have in your way to happiness.

8. Procrastination

I bet this is familiar to everybody. Procrastination is our main enemy for all our beginnings and duties. As you put aside some urgent task, your subconscious won`t let you forget about it completely and you will end up constantly worrying about it and still doing nothing, which causes depression and low spirits. It is useful to have a rule: just start doing it. No matter what that thing is when you get down to it you are most likely to continue. I don`t know for sure how it works but the main thing is that it is effective. The most difficult thing is to make yourself start and then you will be either involved with interest and pleasure or just unable to cease the process until you get the desired result.

9. Controlling everything

If you have a concrete aim to change your life for the better and become a happier person you should also take into consideration that the desire to always have everything under control interferes with this plan of yours. Total controlling of what is going on around you causes too much problems and worries for you in the first place and also to your nearest and dearest. If you can`t change the situation, then change your attitude to it. This is a great life rule for you to have.

So, after everything said above I can only add that very often it is we ourselves who are standing in the way to happy life. So be free, be open and don`t be afraid to let go many things and your life will become more colorful and exciting than before. Sure, these are only some of the things you should not worry about, what would you add to this list?
