It isn’t a new fact that often we’re our own worst enemies and we harm ourselves and our hard work, that’s why I think you should know what are the most important things women must stop doing right now. I know, some of these things are easier said than done, but if you realize what those things you should stop doing are, you’ll refocus your energy and efforts and won’t waste your precious time with the stuff that could cause you problems or could affect you in a negative way. So, take a look at the list of the most important things each woman must stop doing from today!
1. Comparing with others
One of the most important things each woman must stop doing right now is comparing herself with others. Many people compare their life with their friends’ or coworkers’ lives, but you should know that by always comparing yourself to people around you, you could feel more anxious and depressed. So, stop doing it from today! Maybe your friend who is dating a rich guy is not as happy as you are with a poor guy.
2. Apologizing for every little thing
Apologizing all the time for every little thing is another thing women should stop doing. It’s good to take responsibility for your mistakes, but make sure you do not take it too far! Apologizing for every little thing can quickly and easily erode your self-worth, your self-esteem and your value. You have the right to your own opinion and you shouldn’t agree with everyone else. You have your own preferences and you have a full right to spend your time the way you want. Apologize only when you did something wrong, and never say ‘I’m sorry’ when you can’t fulfill someone’s requirements.
3. Fearing being alone
Unfortunately, many women stay in a relationship not because of love, but because they fear of being alone. Please don’t be one of those women! You’ll feel more unhappy by being in a relationship that you don’t want, than being single. Just stop worrying, you’ll meet your love, so be patient and enjoy your life! You are not alone! You have parents, friends and even coworkers! Oh, and don’t forget about pets!
4. Being a people pleaser
Stopping being a people pleaser is the key to a happier and fulfilled life. Just stop saying ‘yes’ to everyone and be sure to set clear boundaries! If you say someone ‘no’, they won’t stop to love and appreciate you. Never allow your insecurities and anxieties make your decisions for you and always think about yourself. You must first make yourself happy and then help others.
5. Not taking vacation
Okay, you love your job and you’re a hard worker who wants to get a promotion, but please don’t forget about your vacation. People who take some time off once in a while are more likely to be healthy, happy and more productive workers. If you don’t take your paid vacation days, you will sabotage yourself and your career. I always say people ‘Good health is above wealth’ and I want to say it to you too. Think of your health first!
6. Viewing food as the enemy
One of the most important things women should stop doing from today is to stop viewing food as the enemy. While we should care about the way we look and feel, we must be careful not to turn it into a big obsession. It’s a thin line between starving yourself and healthy eating. You must pay attention to what you are eating, but you must never do it with guilt.
7. Setting deadlines for every important life event
One of the most common mistakes that many women make these days is planning to the smallest detail their whole life and setting deadlines for all major life events. If you are one of those women, you must immediately stop doing it! Remember, things will happen when they happen, you just can’t control everything and it’s not the end of life if you didn’t get married until you’re 28 or had children at 30. Some things need patience and time, so keep it in mind and enjoy the uncertainty of life.
8. Keeping frenemies close
If you keep your frenemies close because you don’t want to hurt their feelings, stop doing it! Life is too short to waste your time with people who make you feel bad about yourself and who simply don’t deserve even a bit of your attention. Enjoy every moment of your life and stop thinking about the feelings of people who always hurt yours.
9. Wearing high heels every single day
Perhaps, not all of you will agree with me, but you should know that it’s not healthy to wear those high heels every day. While you may think that you look beautiful in a pair of stilettos, you can look fabulous in a pair of flats too. Always embrace comfort and remember that flat shoes are also stylish. So, wear a pair of flats to work tomorrow, and give your feet a break!
In my opinion, these are the most important things women should stop from today, in order to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilled life. Do you have anything to add to this list? Please do it in the comments! Thanks for reading.
