5 Ways you ruin your life without even realizing

It is common for certain things to happen in life but sometimes, you ruin your life by letting the past govern it. There are days where you feel you aren’t special or purposeful. These are the moments and even words that stick with you and make you view the world around you negatively.

In order to be happy, you need to acknowledge what damages you are bringing to yourself through negativity. Once you know what they are, fix them, and stay away from them in the future following are the things that you need to be careful about:

Refusing to live in the moment:

Obsessed with your past? Here is how you can shape your mind to live in the present moment. You ruin your life when you keep on hanging tightly to your past or keep fearing the future. The events and happenings of the past keep replaying in your mind like a movie. This does not allow the new thoughts to enter your mind and this keeps you away from progressing in life.

Thinking of competition:

When you think of your life as a competition with someone, you deprive yourself of all the happiness and satisfaction. It is because trying to control your life according to other’s wishes makes your life miserable. You ruin your life because you stop focusing on yourself and look more towards others.There must be a reason why Singapore has removed school examination rankings. they say kids are not into competition

Following some standard:

People give advice but when you start acting upon those suggestions without realizing what works for you and what doesn’t. You ruin your life thinking other people know a lot better than you. Whereas, the truth is that you know what is best for you and no other person can make better decisions for you except yourself.

By not forgiving:

In your life, you will get hurt by people and will hurt others as well. But holding on to grudges will only blind you from focusing on what is actually valuable. You need to learn to forgive in order to live a successful and happy life. Remember, forgiveness can free your mind and soul

Not leaving your comfort zone:

When you do not get out of your comfort zone and settles with what you have achieved, you put an end to your life. This makes you blind of the opportunities that are waiting out there for you and you fail to find your true happiness in life. Do you want to break your comfort zone? Forgiveness can free your mind and soul
