Good morning guys
Thought I would do a quick post on three things we do as people that hold us back and simple ways to stop yourself from continuing doing them.
1. We make assumptions. We as people make assumptions on a number of different things and most of the time it’s even unconsciously. We assume that people will know how we feel or how they should act or what they should do for us and we assume we know what we should do for someone. – making assumptions will only end in you being hurt, disappointed or let down… let’s say for example in a relationship it’s very often the partners assume that the other should know what they want/ what not to do it is often said “you should have known” it should not be assumed that anyone knows what you want or need no one can read your mind and you will only drive yourself crazy if you start assuming people will do something or know exactly how you feel. In any situation in life, we make assumptions and it’s just because in our society that’s how we’ve been raised. However, we can make a conscious effort to stop. Use your communication instead. Instead of getting upset over something try to talk to them about where you are at and if they are on the same page as you let them know how you feel and what you would like them to do and this isn’t just in relationships it’s for friendships, family even co-workers
2. Holding grudges. Holding a grudge on someone is one of the worst things you can do to yourself. This will only fill YOU with anger, sadness, and emotional poison. You will be the one carrying around this anger or resentment the person which you hold the grudge towards will only be out there living their life and being happy, don’t let them keep you living in anger. Let go of all your grudges that you hold and believe me you will feel 10 times lighter. As hard as it may be, learn to forgive people even if it’s not for them but for your own peace of mind.
3. Taking life too seriously. ” Life is to be lived not controlled” Laughter really is the best remedy – learn to laugh at life. Sometimes we start to take things too seriously and laughter is an amazing thing to bring people together, to mend you of your stress and it will show you that not everything in life is to be taken so seriously. Sometimes things happen to us that we can’t control, we can’t always be graceful, we mess up it’s at times like these where we can choose to take what life has thrown our way with a pinch of salt and a heap of laughter. Learning to laugh at yourself is one of the best things you can do It will make you realise the important thing in life. When you look back at the life you lived the most precious memories you will have are the ones you shared laughter and smiles with your family and friends
Try to make a conscious effort towards changing these three habits and you will be able to remove at least a little bit of the stress away from your shoulders.
Quote of the day – ” A day without laughter is a day wasted.” – Charlie Chaplin
