I’ve decided to stop being negative. After all, being bitter does nothing for my health and happiness.
Being positive is easier than it seems. It’s also the fastest way to affect your health and make you smile.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the bright side of things. One day, I don’t know when, everything turned black.
I wasn’t able to distance myself from the problem. From my point of view, I didn’t achieve anything. As a result, I voluntarily decided to become bitter.
Yes, sometimes we make our lives negative without noticing it. Little by little we start blaming others or blaming circumstances for the bad things that happen to us.
In reality, the only person you can hold responsible is you.
My behaviors have made me bitter
There are certain attitudes that we learn which make us bitter. Unfortunately, we aren’t conscious of them until someone opens our eyes.
Today, we’d like to help you discover some of your own negative thought and habits. You’ll also find out what really makes you unhappy.
1. “They’re better than I am”
Comparing ourselves with others is the worst attitude we can have. This isn’t just because we always end up losing when we do this. It’s also because it is a reflection of just how insecure we are.
We’re not able to see the abilities that make us unique. Nothing positive about ourselves stands out to us. We want to be like everyone else, but we realize that we can’t.
Remember: Every one of us has their own path to walk.
Learn to see with compassion. Stop trying to be perfect. Don’t keep running in circles. This keeps you from being able to advance.
Believe in yourself and in who you are.
2. Stop playing the victim card
Even though we don’t like to recognize it, we love to feel like victims of both situations and others. By doing this, we don’t have to do anything to change or take responsibility for what happens around us. We can also use this as an excuse to give ourselves over to problems.
By doing this, we avoid taking responsibility things that happen to us. We blame those around us. All of this is based on a whim so we can feel better about ourselves.
That being said, the opportunity to change what happens to you is in your hands. You just need to stand up and take action.
3. Everyone else is more important than I am
If this thought has been running around your mind, get rid of it IMMEDIATELY. You are not less important than other. You should never put someone else’s well-being ahead of your own.
That being said, this is something we do all the time, even if we may not realize it. We can’t say no to all of the people that we take care of. Or, at least until we are neck deep in responsibility.
We all have problems because of this. The first thing you should do is care for yourself. Afterward, then you can take care of others if they need it.
If you don’t take care of yourself, who will?
4. If you want to do something, do it today
Why put off so many things you want to do today? Because you’re afraid? Because you’re insecure? It could even be because you were taught to think about the future without enjoying the present.
Imagine that you want to take a trip or find a different job. Unconsciously, your mind starts to think about how bad it would be if you don’t save your money now. Your mind might even tell yourself that you can’t find another job.
With time, this only makes you realize that you aren’t enjoying life like you want to. You don’t think about the present. You aren’t enjoying or even living in the present.
Does this really help you?
To be honest, there are many ways to make life negative. You might remain in a relationship that’s hurting you. You might keep holding on to the toxic people who are around you. It’s even possible that you deny that you need help because you can’t get over the past.
However, there are just as many ways to make life positive.
Today, I’ve decided to let go of my bitterness and be happy. Will you do the same, or decide to stay right where you are?
