Just think how hard you struggle to match your outfits! Every day, you try to wear your best clothes, wear your best smile and try to have a positive attitude not only to win your day but also because you need to impress others. Even when you opt for a comfy t-shirt, you would go for a smart casual because you need to maintain your standards and you think every opinion matters. But, why do you take such trouble and live in a way that you don’t like just to impress others?
No matter what other people think, at the end of the day if you are not happy and if you feel worried, that life will not have a meaning at all. What finally matters is how you feel and that is why we thought of sharing some facts that you should know before living according to the way others dictate.
#1. Know that you are the only one who is responsible for your feelings.
When you let other people decide things for yourself, you will never be satisfied with what you have and always doubt yourself. More than anything, you will have no control over your life and other people will be too busy making decisions for you that you don’t even like. So, before letting someone else decide something for you, keep in mind that you are the one who is responsible for your feelings and it is always worth it to put yourself first.
#2. Always know your values.
We all have something that we value in our lives. Sometimes, it can be your happiness, inner peace or satisfaction. If you live according to the standards set out by other people, you will never achieve these things in your life and that is why it is important to know your values and live according to the things that make you happy.
#3. Always remember that you can’t control how other people behave and what they think of you.
You take so much pain to satisfy the desires of other people, but the truth is that they will always have something to say about you and they will never stop judging you. if you take on a mission to make others happy, that journey will never have an end and therefore, concentrate on what you want in life and work to achieve those ends!
#4. Always remember that everyone makes mistakes.
We all make mistakes and that is alright! When you live the way you want and when you make mistakes, you can become frustrated thinking you are up to no good! But keep in mind that all these mistakes are valuable life lessons and you can learn a lot from everything you do! So make mistakes and learn through them!
#5. Always remember that you are doing the best!
You might regret the dresses that you could have worn to a particular place, the things that you could have said in a particular situation and the ways that you could have done something better. But life is all about taking challenges and facing risks. You did your best at a particular moment and now there is no need to regret it. Next time, when you get the chance, do it better and things will be great!
