5 habits that are ruining your happiness


Nobody wants to be around unhappy people. Unhappiness drives people away and nobody wants that. Unhappy lifestyle is often created by our habits. So, here are 5 habits that lead to unhappiness.

Regretting the past


We all know the fact that life is short but still, some of us waste their life in regretting their past. Regret is the most useless thing one can do. Blaming yourself for wrong decisions and choices that you made in past can result in dreadful circumstances. Focus on the lessons, not on the mistakes.

Seeking perfection


People who want everything to be so perfect often set very wrong expectations for them which later results in unhappiness. The people seeking perfection have this wrong illusion in their mind that they can control everything but it’s not true. Life is uncertain and unpredictable. You can’t control everything in life. Perfection only exists in your dreams. So, don’t aim for perfection, aim for growth.

Comparing yourself to others


This is one of the very common habits of unhappy people. When they see someone with very good physique, an expensive car, A big house or something that they don’t have, they start comparing them and their life with others and their lives. Unhappy people only focus on what they don’t have and destroys their self-esteem. Always appreciate the things you are thankful for and avoid this toxic habit. Make a comparison of yourself to yourself, to measure how much you’ve grown.

Hanging out with the wrong people


The more negative you become the more negative you attract. Yes, it is true that negative people attract more like them and it makes them more unhappy. Being around negative people makes you feel worthless. They are the energy vampires. They drain your energy and gives you a toxic perspective on life. So, surround yourself with positive people who will appreciate you. Watch inspiring movies, Tv series and read self-improvement books, you will definitely feel the positive energy in your life.

Overthinking and complaining


Life is not simple but it’s also not complicated. Everyone has problems in their life but negative people make these problems ten times more complicated by overthinking and complaining about them. They don’t realise that complaining about something and overthinking is not going to fix their problem. Negative people never take responsibility for their mistakes, they always blame others. Avoid these two habits because both of these two habits promote unhappiness in your life.

Positive thoughts and positive habits lead to a positive life. So, improve your emotional quotient and make sure to avoid these habits in your life. Also, share this article with your loved ones and comment your opinion about the happiness in the comment section.
