Every change starts from the inside out.
The world is changing because you are changing. Not the other way around. YES! We are moving forward, but it is important to take our new selves forward. And for our new self, it’s essential to get rid of these 7 things. They would be a pointless burden on the road.
Here are 7 things to get rid from your life:
1. Criticism of yourself and others
It’s time to revise this habit, which only drains your energy. It doesn’t matter if you criticize mentally or aloud. Criticism is only needed for discovering and analyzing what you need to keep working on. It is a constructive critique. BUT! When it becomes a relentless river of resentment, denial, rejection, hatred, it becomes hidden aggression towards you and others. Aggression attracts more aggression, and without realizing it, you enter into a vicious circle. Everything has its positive and its not so positive sides. Learn to accept both, to seek and discover the positive in you and things.
2. Living in the past
You will not find anything new there. When you live in the past, you bring it into the present and make it your current attraction point. It is how you attract more of the same. And then you wonder why you attract the same relationships, situations, and things again. Throw away old wounds and pain. Take off your old insults and fears. Put on faith, goodwill. And go ahead. Don’t let the past steal your present.
3. Toxic relationships
These are one-way relationships. Relationships in which energy moves only from one side to the other, and there is no exchange. Only you give, save, listen, comfort, help. These are relationships that steal your energy and mood. It’s time to change. Someone only looks for you when they need something. And do you need this type of communication?
Don’t pretend to be a good person with toxic people. If you are sympathetic to them, you become toxic to yourself.
4. Excessive thinking
It is the art of creating problems that do not exist. Suppose you are the type of person who tends to think the same thing over and over again like a merry-go-round. You spend more time in your mind than in reality. It is merely the inertia of the mind. It’s time to release the momentum that steals from your present. This way, you give more importance to things that do not really deserve your concern. Just say to yourself: STOP! And return your awareness to the present. This is only a matter of a little practice. The moment you take your attention out of the thought carousel and infuse it into the present reality, and you are ready. You will feel how you got out of the grip of the mental carousel. Then persevere with this practice for a while. You will now feel how nice it is to regain the joy of life.
5. Fear of change
How do you know that what you are accustomed to or have is better than what is coming? The only sure thing in life is change. Learning to accept change is one of the essential lessons of modern times. Of course, any change is associated with leaving the comfort zone. But the moment you allow the change, you realize that it has expanded your comfort zone. It has made you more flexible and adaptable. After all, life itself is an endless journey, learning, and expansion, right? And the more you resist change and try to hide in safety, the more painful it becomes. With each change, you become more conscious, knowledgeable, skilled, and wise. Change brings expansion. Trust the change.
6. To underestimate yourself
Stop doing it. Stop underestimating yourself. You keep thinking that others are more than you. And you are inferior to them. Too often, I meet capable and talented people who, however, underestimate themselves so much that they place a restrictive barrier to their future development. And only because they do not believe in themselves. They are too critical of themselves and thus underestimate their capabilities and skills. If you have such a tendency, it’s time to stop sabotaging yourself. How? Observe how you think of yourself. You often put labels in your thoughts and characterize yourself with not very pleasant characteristics. How to stop underestimating yourself? By taking care of your confidence and self-esteem.
It is essential to realize and accept that mistakes are part of you growing up.
And they don’t define you as incompetent, silly, or bad. Start noticing and paying attention to your good qualities. And they are so many. Notice and enjoy the small successes and victories. You managed not to get angry, and you kept your composure in a critical situation. You have shown empathy and supported someone in need. You have kept your dignity despite the difficulty and so forth. The examples can be countless. The point is to notice them, to reflect on them. Everyone has good and not so good qualities. Whichever you choose to focus on is up to you.
7. Trying to please everyone.
You don’t need it at all, because you also don’t like everyone. But the desire to please everyone has stolen so much from the beauty of life. Any attempt to please someone just to be approved by them takes you away from yourself. In order to please everyone, you betray and lose yourself. And even if you make everyone like you, it still won’t be an indicator of your worth. And you, your value, you determine it yourself with your attitude towards you.
Do you like yourself is the important question?
Do you approve of the path you are taking? Are you satisfied with the choices you make? And the strange paradox is that the less you depend on others’ opinions about you, the more they start to like you. You are important. Try to please yourself because you will share your whole life with you. The others come and go. But you will stay with you.
Get rid of these 7 things, and you will feel that you are regaining your life and the joy of life.
Sometimes, it is important to get rid of the old unnecessary burden in order to move forward. Change starts from the inside out. And every little step along the way is worth it because this is the way to you.
