Happy People Never Do These 4 Things
We all want to be happy, and as I delve into what makes people happy, I realise that happy people make it their intention to be happy. They do a lot of things intentionally that most people don’t do, things like practicing gratitude, meditating, practicing kindness, being loving, and more of the things that make them happy and serve others.
They also choose not to do certain things, negative things that take from them and making their lives less of what it should be. They don’t:
1. Mind other people’s business.
The basis of their lives is not to get themselves into other people’s business. They don’t bother much with what others are doing, and they don’t compare themselves with others. They focus on their own path, they focus on being better and they are their own competition.
Sometimes we make ourselves unhappy and insecure because we are too focused on what someone else is doing instead of focusing on our own lives, our own hustles. We are too focused on the noise out there, instead of listening to our inner voices and what we need to be doing to get happier. So, stop comparing yourself with others, mind your own business and focus on getting you happier.
2. Seek acceptance from others.
Happy people don’t need someone else to approve of them for them to feel important or worthwhile. When you are happy being you, and you don’t need someones approval, and you don’t have the need to constantly compare yourself with other people, or the need to impress someone else, then you will be in a good space and more happier. Don’t subject yourself to the judgement of others, sure people will judge, you but their opinion of you is not something that you have to accept to get happy.
3. Rely on other people to be happy
Happiness is within you, and not on other people or what you have or other external things. You need to get to a point where you give yourself permission to be happy, because you don’t need anyone else’s permission.
Your life is worth living, and it doesn’t depend on material things or in someone else, you can choose to be happy where you are and with what you have, right in this moment.
4. Hold on to resentment.
We all have a past, and its not always pretty. Some of us have had people who have hurt us badly, who have taken things from us and who have done things to us that they shouldn’t have.
Don’t let your past have power over your today, over your right now, don’t be stuck in your past for you will never see the blessing of today.
We’ve all been hurt by our own decisions and by others, the pain is normal, but we need to learn to let it all go, if you want a chance to ever be happy. Forgiveness is a gift that you give yourself, don’t hold on to the past and poison your tomorrow.
