More often than not we tend to worry about thing that aren’t worth worrying about. Instead of focusing on our lives and what makes us happy, we rather spend time thinking about these things and worrying about them.
But the thing is, if you truly want to live a happy life, these are things that shouldn’t bother you at all.
The things not to care about.
5 THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T CARE ABOUT
1. Your past
Yes, your past has a great effect on you. It is what makes you who you are. We all have a past. Some of which are bad and others good. Most often we let the bad memories affect us more than it should. What you should understand is that what is done is done. You can’t do anything about it.
You can’t change the past. What you can do about it however, is let whatever lessons you learnt from your past experience guide you in the decisions you make in your present and once you will make in the future.
Obsessing over the past mistakes, living in the past, won’t do anything to help you. It won’t help whatever happened in the past and it is not going to help your present or your future. So let it all go and breathe.
2. Society’s standards
The society has a standard for everything. Being it beauty, wealth, marital status and others. But don’t let society’s standards define yours. You are beautiful in your own way. You don’t have to look a certain way to be considered beautiful. Whether you are slim or curvy. Do not let what society see as beautiful make you look down on yourself and be sad.
Don’t let the society get to you because you are single. You don’t have to rush into marriage because the society thinks as a woman you should be married by 30 or 35. You don’t have to feel sorry for yourself because all your mates are getting married or employed. And you are home, unemployed and single.
Trust the timing of your life. Do you seriously think God doesn’t have a plan for you? As a Christian,I believe that God has a plan for me and you should too. At the right time, when your time is due, everything will fall into place.
So for now, live in the moment. Enjoy the little things and don’t let societies standards get to you.
3. What others think
People will have an opinion about every action you take. Trust me when it comes to people, you can’t get it right. You can’t please them. You can’t please everybody. The only person you can please and should please is yourself. Do what makes you happy. Don’t worry about others. At the end of the day, what really matters is the one you see when you look into the mirror.
4. Toxic people
Stay away from toxic people. They are not good for your overall well being. These people will drain you with their negative energy. They are not good for your physical health, emotional health and your mental health. They are just not good for you. So stay away from toxic people.
