Life can be quite difficult to understand, so we oftentimes seek materials or a professional to lead us towards healthier and more peaceful existence. However, the fact that self-care movement is all the rage doesn’t make things easier. In fact, one may end up even more confused thanks to the many books written on this topic.
To simplify things for you, we came up with 5 simple words that do help when it comes to guiding one towards the right path.
Reciprocating is the key to achieving serenity. You have probably met people who don’t repay you the kindness you offer them. Or friends who don’t work on strengthening a friendship. Or relatives who show no respect but expect it from you simply because you are related.
To lead a better and more peaceful life, one has to learn that keeping people in their life who aren’t willing to reciprocate the love, effort, and energy given to them is not a good idea.
If someone in your life repeatedly takes you for granted and acts as if your presence/ absence in their life doesn’t matter, look for someone better.
Have you ever noticed that when you commit a mistake or find yourself in a distressing situation, you tend to give up due to fear of failure and sense of despair?
Well, it is important to understand that you always have the chance to start over. This doesn’t refer to finances and economically related things only, like education or career. You always have the opportunity to evolve, learn, prosper, forgive, and improve your life.
Acceptance is the key to a happier and more fulfilled life. It refers to accepting your body, accepting who you are, and accepting your possibilities. The sooner you stop attempting to change your appearance and your personality in order to be in tune with society`s standards, the sooner you will learn to how to appreciate your actual self.
What you have to remember is that people stick to the way they perceive you, no matter what. Sometimes this perception will be negative , but this doesn’t mean that you need to keep trying to prove them wrong. Be who you are and let others mind their own business.
It is normal to have bad days as well as days which can lead you into thinking that you are failing at healing. However, healing is not liner. It is an adherence to and a relationship with yourself.
Never punish yourself for focusing on the sensation or sensory input now and then. Give yourself the needed time to rest and recharge your batteries. Then, keep up working on overcoming your issues and improving yourself.
Death is life`s biggest anxiety, so we choose to ignore it and rarely talk about it. We choose to do our best and live a successful life, acting if the inevitable will not happen.
But, changing your attitude and view of death can actually improve your life. Once you come to terms that you are dying no matter what, you will somehow free yourself from some stupid social norms.
