It is our second nature to be worried about various aspects in our lifetime. We keep doing things that don’t really bring value to our life. Stress is the engine that makes us do things we do not enjoy, like the job you’re working so hard for. You hate it but someone has to pay those bills. Or the inner drag that is forcing you to take a lot of things to heart that only hurt your spirit and soul.
Stop wasting your time on things that don’t matter! Here are 7 things you should definitely ignore, ‘cause in the end, they simply won’t mean anything:
1. People who don’t respect you
Pull away from negative people, there is no point in staying friends with people that have no respect for you. You’ve been close for such a long time, you forgot why you became friends in the first place. Things change, people change. Begin cutting off people from your life who only make you doubt yourself or feel sorry for yourself.
2. Impossible expectations
Find your own path in life and the purpose will follow. Don’t let silly expectations fill your life with failure and disappointment, do the best you can do and dismiss the others’ expectations of you or your own.
3. Complaining and feeling sorry for yourself
Life is too short to complain about things all the time. Weigh your priorities and stop feeling sorry for yourself, it doesn’t do you any good in the long run. Pull yourself up and take action, you can make a difference so you might as well start now. Going down the rabbit hole of self-pity may eventually be difficult to escape from.
Vanity, pride, narcissism and a big ego are things that don’t mean a thing when you draw the line in your life. Even if these things helped you achieve material goods throughout your existence, your true value is in who you are as a person, not how much money you have in your bank account.
5. Pleasing others
Don’t spend your life trying to please the people around you, even if you are the most magnificent, nicest person in the world, there will always be someone who doesn’t fancy your personality. Be yourself, staying true to yourself is maybe the most powerful thing you can do in this life.
6. Destructive feelings
Whatever they did and how much pain they caused you, drop the destructive emotions for the journey we have on Earth is brief. Don’t allow anger and resentment to enslave your soul. Let it go and move on.
7. Forget the past
You can’t go back and change it, that’s a fact you must keep reminding yourself at every turn. Why should you invest your spirit in something that is dead and buried? You may reconcile with your past, you can even apologize for something you did in the past but there’s nothing you can do to change it.
Try to live up to your potential and you will have no regrets when you’re old. Share this with your friends and family!
