To Be Successful, Avoid These Destructive Habits Of Chronically Unhappy People
By Izza Sofia, 22 May 2017
When people are unhappy, it is much more difficult to be around them, let alone work with them. Unhappiness drives people away, creating a vicious cycle that holds you back from achieving the things that you are capable of.
Some habits lead to unhappiness more than others do. Recognize these bad habits and watch yourself carefully to make sure that they do not become part of your life.
“The bottom line: we all have different circumstances that we are given in this lifetime, but in the end these circumstances are ours—fair or unfair, wanted or unwanted.”
Happy people know that complaining would not do them any good. If they want things to change, they need to act, not complain about it. People who are constantly complaining give off a negative energy that affects everyone around them. Instead of focusing on how unfair or awful a situation is, think of a way to turn it around.
“How we talk to ourselves shapes our self-image, for better or worse.”
True self-love can take years to develop, but without it, we cannot be truly happy. Realizing your self-worth contributes greatly to your happiness. It allows you to be more confident and comfortable in your own skin. In the same way, being overly critical of others says more about you than it does about them. Someone who is constantly criticizing others is not truly happy with themselves. It is important to respect that everyone is different, and that is perfectly fine.
“Unfortunately, many good people have met their end through addictive habits, especially through dependence on alcohol and drugs.”
Unhappy people often look for an outlet to help them forget about their anger or sorrows. Depending on alcohol, drugs, gambling or other vices to cover up how you feel will only bring you down further. Instead, try to find a positive outlet to express yourself, such as painting or writing as these activities would help to improve your mental and emotional health.
