Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to talk about life and something about life that I have been learning about a lot lately. And that is things that just aren’t worth our time. I think it is important to step back and evaluate what we are spending our time on and what is valuable and what is not. So I wanted to share a few things that I think life is just to short for, and here they are.
Guilt is something we all go through and sometimes it is absolutely warranted and you should feel guilty. However, at a certain point you have to move on. You have to forgive yourself and understand that life is bigger than whatever you feel guilty for. You can’t waste all your time and energy feeling guilty about something that you can’t change. If you can’t do anything about it, just move on.
Crying over people who just weren’t meant to be.
I have spent a lot of time crying over people who just weren’t meant to be a part of my life. From relationships to friendships, I have been hurt over people who could not have cared less about me. So crying over them for as long as I did was a complete waste of time. I know that it is easy to fall in a pit of mourning them for days and even weeks, but at some point you have to let go and understand that they just weren’t meant to be in your life forever.
Working a job that you hate.
We all have jobs that we aren’t exactly fond of, especially starting out. However, at some point it is okay to move on and find a better job. Start saving money so you can work towards that job, whatever it may be. You have a limited amount of time and every moment you live is very precious. So you should spend that time working a job that you enjoy and that you believe in.
I know. I’m guilty of it too. But honestly insulting yourself does you no good. It only does harm. If you are insulting something that you can change, then I suggest working to change it. If you are insulting something that can’t be changed, I suggest working to accept it. I think insulting yourself is just a waste of time and it can be spent doing something much more positive.
Valuing other people’s opinions more than your own.
When it comes to your life, you are the person who has to live it. So it is up to you to make those important and valuable decisions. You can get the advice of others, but ultimately you have to make those decisions. Because you are the one that has to live with them. Don’t give other people the power to choose your journey. Decide for yourself what you want your life to be.
Living with constant stress.
Unfortunately we live in a society today where it is considered a good thing to always be stressed. However, living in constant stress is not good for any part of you. Life is too short to always be stressed and never be able to enjoy your life. You should value self care and making sure that you are getting enough rest. It can really help you live a better and more fulfilled life.
People who bring you down.
We all have those people in our lives. The negative or controlling people who think they should tell us what they think. Those people are really toxic and shouldn’t have that much power over us. Life is too short to sit around and let those people keep us at their level. So it is important to let them go and surround yourself with more positive people who lift you up.
