Your happiness matters. We tend to put other people’s happiness before our own and make excuses for the reasons why we neglect our needs – we are too busy or too stressed out. If you don’t value your own happiness then no one else will.
We all must have watched women take care of everyone else. But have you ever tried to understand that these selfless women were doing so much for others that they often ignored their own needs, making them unhappy and unfulfilled.
“Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.” We are responsible for what we see, which means that when one is feeling defeated internally, the world will reflect a similar sentiment.
If a person’s internal feeling is one of fulfillment, the way in which one sees the world will be positive. Only an individual can know exactly what he or she needs. To feel good in this world, it is compulsory to understand oneself; the responsibility should be no one else’s. This is why your happiness should always be your priority.
Here are some ways by which we could try and achieve
Make yourself a Priority
Believe in yoursef to be worthy and understand that without meeting your own needs, you would never be the best daughter, friend, sister, aunt, employee or partner that you could be.
Say what you feel
Vale your feelings, it’s important to focus on yourself, rather than on others, to make decisions. Only you know what’s best for you. The more you listen to yourself, the more successful you will be in finding your own answers. So instead of allowing negativity to fester, express yourself.
Speak well of yourself
Negative sentiments only reinforce poor self-esteem. Mind how you speak of yourself. Be more conscientious when you speak about yourself, and every time you say something negative, change your dig into a positive statement.
Surround yourself with goodness
It’s important to surround yourselves with positivity —Spending time with people who make you happy, laughing couples, beautiful landscapes, sumptuous food. The more goodness with which we immerse ourselves, the more worthy we feel of having such fortune. In order to become the best versions of yourselves, to have lives filled with laughter and enjoyment, we must be kind to yourselves. If you surround yourself with negativity then your life will be filled with negativity, and the opposite is true also, being around positive, happy people and surrounding makes you to be positive and happy.
Love those around you; appreciate and love those around you, bring joy to the people who mean the most by telling them how much they mean to you.
Take responsibility for your own life and be yourself
Own your life. Own your mistakes. Live, learn and move on. The world doesn’t owe you anything; you make your own path through this world.
Be true to yourself and be proud of the person you are. Be proud of your quirks and weirdness, stand tall and proud and applaud your inner awesomeness!
Do not wait for someone else to make you happy, if you do,you may be waiting a long time. Life is not about getting a chance; it is about taking a chance. If there is something you have always dreamed of doing, then try to make it happen.
Concentrate on the things you can control, not the things you can’t.
Be kind;Kindness breeds kindness. Its a simple one but so important, be open; share your thoughts and feelings with the people closest to you.
Let go of the past; Our pasts define who we are and we can learn lessons from the things we have gone through, but when your past is keeping you from moving forward it becomes a problem. lett go of the pain and resentment that is holding you back.
Appreciate the things you have; There will always be someone better off than you and someone worse off than you. Learn to appreciate the things you have, rather than worrying about the things you don’t.
Last but not the least be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
