Regret is like a blind spot in your life. Maybe, you said hasty words in anger or chewed over on a financial conclusion and lost. We fall into a damaging loop beating ourselves up emotionally by gnawing on our actions, words, and silence, like a poor tasing gum over and over again. This contemplation saps our vitality and impedes us from moving forward.
Since everyone feels some sort of regret when chewing over on the past, it only converts to a problem if you tend to amplify what you did or didn’t do or get hooked on pitying yourself.
Regrets dilute your presence. Therefore, learn from your battles the way a boxer or martial artist does. Battles on the outside prepare you for conflicts on the inside. So, use the experience to ameliorate your technique and do better.
Don’t take failure too badly. There is a danger of falling under great negativity thus causing yourself to go into a state of depression and worry. The more you focus on your past mistakes, the more it hurts. So, don’t linger over your faults. Pass them by like paintings in a museum that you don’t especially like. Or else concentrate on the paintings that you do like.
Be in the agreement with others and likewise yourself. Forgive readily, particularly yourself.
Regret is like a blind spot in your life. Maybe, you said hasty words in anger or chewed over on a financial conclusion and lost. We fall into a damaging loop beating ourselves up emotionally by gnawing on our actions, words, and silence, like a poor tasing gum over and over again. This contemplation saps our vitality and impedes us from moving forward. Show kindness toward others who triumph when you fail and toward those who drop off when you win. By being kind to others you will get accustomed to kindness. It will become a part of you and make you feel like a better person. At last, you will be kind to yourself, see your worth, and not beat yourself up over a past error.
Alleviating regrets is a very important step in helping you to enjoy a happier life. There’s something special about happy people. Apart from smiling and laughing more often than the rest of the population, happy people also have these four traits in common:
- They live in the present
Happy people focus on what’s happening right now. They know that whatever happened in the past, stays in the past. There’s no point mourning about it in the present. So, they make the most of what they do have. They learn from their mistakes and failures in the past, but they don’t dwell on it too much. Which is the exact opposite of what unhappy people do.
Most people are unhappy because they let themselves get too attached to the past. If you’re one of them, you’ve got to learn to let go. Move on and focus on what you’ve got right in front of you, right this very moment. Otherwise, you’re going to miss out big time on the present, and you’ll only add it to your long list of things you regret.
2. They’re optimistic about the future
Happy people aren’t naïve. They know the future is important. They can’t simply live in the present, and not have a good plan for the future. They’re optimistic about what the future holds.
If you’ve got a good thing going, you’d want it to last as long as possible. This is why happy people want to protect their source of happiness. They’re not going to throw it away for some silly things that are going to cost them a whole lot more.
3. They appreciate everything
Gratitude is often overlooked in one’s quest for happiness. It’s so easy to look beyond the good things you do have and go straight to wishing for things you know are way out of your league.
Let’s talk about money: for most people, being wealthy is their ultimate goal. They think that when they become rich, they can finally be happy. But, oftentimes, this isn’t the case. You can be happy without being wealthy. Try to appreciate the gift of life, family and friends, good health, etc. Life’s not all about money, you know.
4. They have a good sense of humor
Happy people know how to roll with the punches. They don’t dwell on whatever negative thing’s happening to them right now. They take it all in stride. They try to find the humor in everything. This is why happy people are such a joy to be with – they help other’s see things in a different and more positive light.
So, I encourage you, dear reader to follow these steps to alleviate regrets and live a happier life starting today.
