8 WAYS TO GET OUT OF SELF-PITY MENTALLY

Somebody has to tell you, and it’s this, self-pity is unattractive, but you can get out of it!

Do you know who stand in your way of getting ahead most of the time? Yes, you got it right! You and it happens to the best of us. However, before you downplay yourself one more time, go ahead make a list of the things that you are grateful for. What this will do is create a shift in thinking. You have heard it, change the way you think, and things will begin to change. Let’s change some things for the better!

“Feeling sorry for yourself and your present condition is not only a waste of energy but the worst possible habit you could have.” – Dale Carnegie

Let’s look at some ways to get out of the self-pity mentality:

  1. Select your thoughts carefully because we become what we think.
  2. Eliminate pitiful thinking by exercising positive thinking daily, and you can enhance that way of thinking through reading.
  3. Love your way of the pit by finding everything about yourself that you love.
  4. Focus on the positive things in your life, and not the negative because what you focus on multiplies.
  5. Practice mindfulness.
  6. Identify the good things about you. What are some of your strengths?
  7. Talk with people who can influence you positively.
  8. You determine how you are going to feel: you can be pitiful or purposeful-choose!

How did you get in the self-pity mentality in the first place? Simple, you stop seeing your worth maybe from the not so pleasant things that you have experienced or experiencing. I want to remind you to be gentle with yourself because life happens and not all times the way you want it. The thing is the unpleasant situation doesn’t make you less valuable and don’t allow it to. Although brushing yourself off and go at life again can be hard, it is imperative that you do. Your dream is still floating out there, but if you remain in self-pity mentally, you will only limit yourself from experiencing what is possible.

To heal from your adverse situation is possible, but the starting point is how you begin to see yourself.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.

5 SIMPLE WAYS TO NURTURE YOUR HAPPINESS

HappyForNoReason.Be Happy!

What are you waiting on to be happy? If you have been waiting for or to have certain things before you can be happy, forgive yourself and start being happy now. In fact, the happiest people learn to appreciate what they have. Remember, to be happy is not to be worrying about the things that you don’t have. Worrying breed stress, and when you are stressed, you are less likely to be happy. Well, let’s look at some ways to nurture your happiness.

“Don’t let the silly little things steal your happiness.” -Unknown

  1. Remind yourself of the things you’re grateful for, and the benefit of that is you’ll be more optimistic.
  2. Wear clothes that make you feel good and when you feel good about yourself, you’ll feel better when taking on the things that matter most.
  3. Call a friend who makes you feel happy when you talk and that is not only someone who listens but someone who also give support to your undertaking.
  4. Do something that you really love to do, and that should be daily. Life is short, and you don’t want to put off doing what you love until later because later may become never. Do it now!
  5. Exercise. Yes! It doesn’t have to be strenuous or too challenge, but getting some exercise in can make a lot of difference in how you feel. Exercising is two-fold, it take care of your emotional and physical health.

“Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid and doors will be open where you didn’t know they were going to be.” -Joseph Campbell

We are not going to be able to control everything that happens around us, but we can choose to be happy and remember, no one is in charge of your happiness, that job is yours. Besides, being happy is not necessarily having the best of things, but making the best of those things. Make a promise to yourself to never again allow what you don’t have in life rob you of appreciating life.

Spend time with positive people.
