15 Things to Stop Thinking About So You Can Be Happy
1) What he or she said
Did somebody just say something that hit you in the nerves?
Be it an insult, a subtle put down or plain sarcasm, stop rerunning it over and over in your head. It’s not worth it.
Besides, you shouldn’t take it personally. It could be nothing.
2) The stresses of work
Go to work. Play your part. Do your job well.
When you punch out, leave everything else at the office. It’s time to enjoy your day. Stop thinking about work and focus on your own life already.
You are not your job.
3) Something bad that happened in the past
This is a very “easier said than done” point, but it’s true, we need to let go of the past and start focusing on the present.
If you think about it, the past does not exist anymore and thinking about it would never produce anything worthwhile for you or your life.
So do what it takes to let it go. If you feel you need therapy, just go for it.
4) The future
Speaking of time, we shouldn’t waste too many thoughts for the future by piling up a bunch of expectations.
Lower them! If they’re too high, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment ONLY.
Besides, it’s more fun this way. When you drop the expectations, the surprises would feel more amazing.
5) The breakup
Breakups hurt, but you’ll be fine.
Give yourself your time to heal. Give yourself the chance to experience love again.
You can’t get any of those if you’re constantly thinking of the broken relationship.
