Let go of the meaningless nothings. Keep the meaningful closer. Make efforts not to be swayed or distracted by jealousy or feelings of inadequacy, but instead look inward, practice mindfulness and self-love, and simplify your life. Focus on relationships and health and happiness instead of material possessions, professional or social ‘status,’ and income.
Take a few minutes and think about what makes you the happiest. Who do you feel your best around? What in your life is making you the most unhappy?
Now focus on these things and make a plan. Do the things that make you happy and see the people who make you happy more often. Get rid of (or make a plan to get rid of over time if it’s something that is difficult) what makes you unhappy. Forget about whether changing jobs/careers/boyfriends/girlfriends will make you look less successful or popular.
Stop and ask yourself the following questions:
- Do we have a good relationship with our family?
- Do we have a friend or partner who we love? Do we spend enough time with them and let them know how much they mean to us?
- Do we feel good physically? If not, how can we fix that? More exercise? Better eating habits?
- Are we drinking too much? Sleeping too little? Working too many hours?
It’s not easy to take control of your life, that’s why so many of us are stuck in the same old patterns of co-dependency, unrealistic self-expectations, and pointless regret. However, making a conscious decision to live in a new way is the first step to regaining a sense of self-value and self-mastery.
It was never meant to be easy. It was just meant to be meaningful. Take action and live the better side of life. – Chris Furlong
