5 Things Happy People Never Do

· January 23, 2017
Happy people give off positive energy and know how to gain knowledge from and think positively in any situation no matter how adverse it may be.

Life isn’t easy and sometimes we have to deal with difficult situations. But in spite of this, there are many happy people who are satisfied independent of the circumstances that they find themselves in.

What do they do in order to always be so happy? Are they colder and hardened to suffering? Not at all.

Happy people react differently in different situations.

We’ve got some examples of situations for you in which happy people never do what we would normally do so that you too can face them in a different way.

1. Never talk about others

We generally understand that “talking about others” is something negative, like when we criticize or judge others for their actions.

Happy people know that if you want to enjoy life, you can’t focus on the lives of others. If you don’t enjoy your own, you aren’t really living.

That’s why they always avoid these situations where the discussion is about someone else’s life, like why someone is separated from someone else or not taking care of their kids.

Happy people know that life is not simple and that everyone must focus on their own. Do we want to tell everyone else how they should live their live?

2. They don’t blame others for their mistakes

Making a mistake is not a bad thing. It’s just a misstep that you need to take responsibility for and find a solution for.


Happy people are happy thanks to this. They see mistakes as opportunities to grow, advance and achieve anything they want.

In the past they may have been taught to feel ashamed of the mistakes they made, but they have rebelled against this and begun to see everything from another perspective.

This has helped them and stopped they from laying the blame for their mistakes on others. They know how to be responsible and accountable for their actions.

3. There is no room for resentment in their hearts

Not everyone is capable of resentment. This painful feeling can take over the heart and make us unhappy people.

Happy people are not capable of holding resentment against anyone, no matter how badly someone has treated them or even if they have committed real atrocities.

They know that all is forgotten over time, and if not forgotten, you wind up letting it go because it is part of the past.

Emotions change and forgiveness takes over. True forgiveness will get you past the situation and distance you from the toxic people that have hurt you but will never hurt you again.

4. They are definitely not pessimists

Many people call them “naive” because they’re optimistic in even the worst of situations.

Nevertheless, this has helped them through difficult circumstances and led them to open doors that negative thoughts had closed.

They know that optimism moves mountains and that somehow life is and will always be how you decide to look at it.

That’s why if you want a positive outcome and to always smile, being positive is one of your best options.

5. They don’t sit around doing nothing

It’s hard, so very hard. Not even with our best smile can we always take on everything negative we are faced with, but will you sit around and do nothing about it?

Happy people know that doing nothing is not an option. They take advantage of opportunities to escape a situation that isn’t to their liking and take whatever they can with them that will lead them to fulfill their dreams.

The circumstances will be tough, but if you wait while life moves past you without doing anything, nothing will have any meaning.
