Seeking for happiness in life is not an unexpected thing. But unfortunately, the search for happiness aimlessly end up being lost in the sadness and hopelessness. We develop a lot of habit in our daily lives. Sometimes we refuse to grant any changes in life because of the inbuilt habit we preserve inside us. Unfortunately, without getting aware we keep happiness away by building few bad habits.
So, let us discuss those habits or our instincts which might become an obstruction in getting back happiness in our lives.
Resisting changes in life:
Life never gets stagnant. Changes and developments always happen in life. Hence, resisting life from the changes can bring more discomfort in your life. You should understand that life is a moving phase. This is more than painful if your life is remaining in the same place where you were earlier. Adapt the changes and behave maturely to it. For example, if somebody is moving to another city for better career option, he should have to leave his present house and have to move into a new house. If this change is not acceptable to him then life would be cruel to him. It will snatch the happiness one can deserve.
Others deciding your life:
Always remember your life is yours. Do not allow your ears to entertain others discouragement and negative thoughts. You have definitely planned your life and you know yourself. Your capabilities and possibilities are known to you. Others can not live your life nor can not guide you. Thus, a great and simple life is on your hand. What to decide and what to not is your responsibility. This shortens your happiness easily.
Focusing on problems only:
You need to change your views towards life. Nobody is living a happy life without any grief. The main challenge you face is the problems occurring in your life. These problems may not be as big as others having. Try to see the world from different views, see your problems differently too. None of the sad phase stays forever. They will be gone for sure. So, do not let the happiness go away for this reason.
Self-obsession can eventually bring a lot of mental illnesses. You are unable to spend your entire life focusing your yourself only. There is something exist more than ‘Me-factor’. Helping, caring others can give you immense happiness. However loving yourself is also necessary but that does not signify you forget the world around you.
