In this day and age, we tend to be far more obsessed with the things we cannot control than we should be. Life is too short to stress out about these things and the more control we can gain over our own lives the better in regards.
If someone is holding you back or bringing you down they don’t deserve your time or efforts and the sooner you come to terms with that the better. You cannot force someone to be the person you want them to be and you can’t change the past no matter how badly you might want to. As a human being learning how to let go properly and really focus on yourself is crucial and if you’re not doing it, you need to make some changes.
When you learn to let go and stop wasting your time giving a f*ck about things that don’t really matter you find yourself in ways you perhaps never thought you would. While holding back might feel like the right thing at the moment it’s always better to break free and really come out of your comfort zone. You can’t just live life stuck within the walls you’ve built, you must break them down to truly flourish.
If you can’t do anything about something you should work to remove the power that something has over you. Otherwise, you’re just going to end up miserable. Don’t let the things other people think control who you feel you are. Their thoughts don’t define you, you define yourself.
You don’t have to have the perfect body or be the most pretty person in the world, you’re perfectly imperfect as you are and there is not a single damn thing wrong with that. As long as you’re happy, healthy, and comfortable you’re doing something right and you should never forget that. Don’t let gossip and drama get under your skin and stop trying to fight so hard for the approval of those who will never truly accept you for who you are anyway.
Let go of your unrealistic expectations, let go of toxic self-talk, and stop giving negative people places in your life. This knife is far too short to spend all your time upset over things that you’re unable to do anything about. We all make mistakes, and we all fall down sometimes, these things are just a part of life and you’ll come to terms with these things in time.
Being popular isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and while you might not have all of the things you want in life you have a lot more than you realize right now. You have people who love you, food to eat, and clothes to wear. You’re better off than some people.
Feeding into your worries won’t do you any good. Instead of making them worse try to meditate over them and let go. While this world wants a lot from us, we don’t owe the people around us anything. You should be working towards being the best version of yourself that you can be and living a life that makes you proud, nothing more and nothing less.
