The 20 Things You Need To Let Go To Be Happy

The Approval Of Others: Who gives a sh*t what other people think? If you are happy with the decisions you have made, then whose business is that but your own?

Anger/Resentment: Anger will eat at you from the inside. Learn how to make peace with those who have wronged you.

Negative Body Image: There is only one person’s opinion you should be concerned with when it comes to your body and that is you.

Idea Of A Perfect Partner: There is no such thing as a perfect partner, so throw your checklist out the window.

Perfect Life: Just like there is no perfect partner, there is also not a perfect life. Life is what you put into it, so if you are not willing to work hard and put forth effort, you will most likely end up miserable.

You’re Going To Be Rich: Too many people live their lives with the thought that they will be millionaires.

The Idea That Good Fortune Will Arrive At Your Doorstep: You need to go out into the world and actively look for fulfillment. You cannot take a backseat in life and expect things to happen for you.

Excuses: Make no time for excuses. You want to work out, but you don’t have the time? Wake up early and get your gym on.

Thoughts Of Your Ex: This person is your ex for a reason. If you are going to think of him or her at all, try and think only about the lessons the experience taught you.

Stubbornness: I know it’s hard to admit, but sometimes you are just wrong. Other people have just as much capability as you do in providing the correct answer.

Procrastination: Stop thinking you will finally get to whatever task is at hand tomorrow. Live in the present, and get your sh*t done when it needs to be done.

Your Baggage: We have all been hurt one time or another by someone we loved, or we thought we loved. Carrying negative feelings into future relationships will only prove to be disastrous.

Negativity: What you put out into the universe will come back to you, so change the way you think, immediately.

Judgmental Thoughts: Why do people feel the need to constantly worry about what is going on in other people’s lives?

Jealousy: Happiness is not having what you want; it’s wanting what you have. Stop envying others and learn to appreciate what you have.

Insecurity: Happy people tend to have extremely high levels of self-esteem. They accept who they are and work it everyday of their lives.

Depending On Others For Happiness: At the end of the day, the only person you can count on 100 percent of the time is yourself. Do not make the unfortunate mistake many people do and put your happiness in the hands of others.

The Past: Stop living in the past! There is virtually nothing you can gain if you wallow in mistakes you have previously made.

The Need For Control: Sometimes you just need to let life happen the way it is meant to. You cannot spend your life stressing about things that are outside of your control.

Expectations: Managing your expectations is the key to happiness. If you let go of expectations, you will never be disappointed. Often, we tend to believe that the way we treat others will be the way we are treated in return. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Do not expect a certain result from any given situations. Go into an experience with an open mind. This will allow you to fully immerse yourself, without the pressure of living up to preconceived notions.
