Things happen in life that is out of our control. Things happen in life that is in our control too. And too many times, we often will blame ourselves and keep apologizing to others. When we feel like we are at fault, we aren’t happy with ourselves and sometimes, there really isn’t a reason for us to do that.
Here are 12 things that you don’t need to be taking the blame for. The sooner you quit this bad habit, the happier your life will be:
1. Your Emotions.
Do you cry easily or become too concerned about things that matter to you? When it comes to a person’s feelings, there is no such thing as “too much”. That’s who you are.
2. Handling Your Emotions.
Find healthy ways to handle your emotion without feeling guilty. Write a letter then toss it or put it up and reread it later. Slam a door. Take a walk without your phone. Find an outlet and do what you need to do to get your emotions out and clear your head.
If somebody doesn’t like your new hairdo or agree with you politics, that isn’t your fault. And opinion is just that – an opinion and everybody has one and they aren’t all the same.
4. Small Failures.
And large failures are the result of being human. They are natural and they happen. You find a way to forgive others mistakes and they should do the same for you.
5. Other’s Circumstances.
Your story isn’t going to be like anyone else’s story so don’t make comparisons. We can’t all have the same thing as everyone else, so don’t put that stress on you.
The human race is amazingly complex and so are our needs. You have no need to apologize for your needs in your career, your relationship, anything. Never apologize for going after what you need and want.
7. Your Pleasures.
If you like eating a bowl of ice cream while watching KUWTK, then don’t feel like you have to apologize or explain yourself. We all need a little guilty pleasure to make life better.
8. Being Bad At Something.
Not all of us are artistic or athletic or good with numbers. We all have a unique gift of our own to give in life and we can’t all be good at everything.
9. Put Yourself First.
Put your relationship with yourself first. Know who you are, what is in your heart, your soul and your mind. If you have to be selfish sometimes, that’s okay.
10. Trusting The Wrong Person.
It is human to err in trusting somebody. We’ve all been betrayed or burned and you have to remember you are not responsible for the other person’s actions.
11. A Relationship Terminated.
There are just some people that just weren’t meant to be in your life. It wasn’t the right time or they simply just weren’t the right person.
12. The Past.
Thinking over the past is simply letting events and people rent space in your head for free. Live for today and let yesterday go.
