5 REASONS TO STOP CARING ABOUT THINGS THAT DON’T MATTER
“A man who knows everything knows nothing.”
1. Question your obsessions., If you think you know everything about your life then you are going to be less motivated to do something with your life.
2. Life is too short. Think about what is immediate, true and important to you. As we age life should be easier, but sometimes it gets more complicated. Money, aging partners, health, children, grandchildren are a part of our universe.
In our search for happiness and personal growth being able to focus on things that really matter to you is important.
3. If you feel stuck it’s because you don’t have, or you perceive you don’t have, the power to react or create meaning around your life. If you are sometimes angry and anxious; if you you feel bad about something, it’s okay. You may have genuine reasons to feel these emotions. These are a huge component within a healthy life. Don’t feel guilty about having these reactions to problems.
But remember struggles are not always that bad. They invigorate you. They motivate you to work through them to help either others or yourself.
Believe it or not, our struggles are the building blocks of happiness. Okay . It’s true sometimes problems are completely out of our control. You can’t always eliminate them—- but it’s finding something more meaningful in your life, or worthwhile, where you can put your focus and be in control.
Don’t focus on the negative details, Details are the enemy of growth. Focus on the bigger picture – the end goal and work toward that.
5. You have to be comfortable with who you are. It’s not being different, but it’s your acceptance of being comfortable with being different.
