You May Not Realize It, But These Little Things Are Making You Unhappy
Unhappiness comes in many shades of gray. Sometimes people just lack joy. Is their emotional darkness their own choice? Or, are life circumstances beyond their control? While depression, and other psychological diseases, are certainly a clinical illness and should not be minimized, there are also factors that contribute to feeling down that you can influence. Here are some reasons you may be unhappy, and suggestions on how to open the mental blinds to let the sunshine back in.
1. You worry.
Worry creates inner turmoil.
It’s like a rocking chair moving
feverishly, but going nowhere.
2. You hold onto the perceived idea of control.
At times, people seem to believe
that they stepped straight out of
a superhero comic book.
They believe that they can control
everything very well and things will
just turn out exactly what they planned.
2- You Hold On to Grudges
Holding a grudge has about the same
logic as drinking poison and waiting
for the other person to die.
You are harming yourself by carrying
all of that negative energy.
4. You believe everyone should play by your rules.
If you expect the world to be fair
with you because you are fair,
you’re fooling yourself.
That’s like expecting the lion not to
eat you because you didn’t eat him.
5.You compare yourself to others.
Most people play the internal comparison
Usually, they scrutinize only one small
area of that person’s life and see where
the match up.
6. You chose to be happy only when all of your dreams come true.
when you tie your happiness to
future successes that may or may
not happen, you never find joy in
the life you live today.
7. You are a glass-half-empty person.
If you’re a pessimistic person,
you will notice all of the bad in your life.
Your perception becomes your reality.
8. You are lonely.
The most terrible poverty is loneliness,
and the feeling of being unloved.”
9.You’re stuck in your past.
Many people become the product
of their pasts.
They are the causalities of regret,
sorrow, what ifs, and hindsight vision.
10. You’re unhealthy.
The way you think, the way you behave,
the way you eat, can influence your life
by 30 to 50 years.
