14 Aug 8 Truths of Life That Will Bring You Peace.
Wondering how to get peace in life? You need to hear these 8 truths to pull your life together!
1.Be Mindful About Social Media:
Social media is very addictive, I get it. But you are going to regret the amount of time you spend on it, simply because it is a facade. True, we are able to communicate with lots of people, but is there an authentic relationship or an illusion? I leave the answer up to you, but remember, if we look at the bigger picture, instead of feeling lonely although you have a 1000 friends, learning to focus on building a real experience is going to bring you a lot more peace in life.
2. Control Your Reactions:
There is a gap between a situation and your emotions- this is your reaction. Your reaction will dictate how much a situation is going to affect your peace in life. Get this together, and you have the power to take your happiness to the next level. For example, what if you didn’t have to react to someone’s opinion? Wouldn’t life be a lot easier? So starting today, watch yourself reacting as if you’re watching a monkey or zebra at the zoo( from an outsider’s perspective) and slowly consciously decide how long you want certain reactions to impact your day.
3. Prioritize Your Spending:
“Everything You Do Now Is For Your Future, Think About That”
Sometimes we spend money on things that we don’t want. I’ve thought of actually spending $100 on premium make up( which I rarely use), but did rethink spending the same amount on something life-altering like a course that could affect my immediate and long term goals. I don’t mean to say that you shouldn’t splurge if you want to, all I’m saying is to always have enough money to invest in what matters for your future.
4. Some People Are Going To Hate You:
If you’ve read this, you’ll know that you should’t care what other people think about you. But there are people who will dislike you no matter what you do, so the best thing to do is to spend more time accepting yourself.
5. Stop Blaming, Start Being Responsible:
It is very relieving, in the moment of crisis, to blame things on someone else or some circumstance. But the sooner you take responsibility, the stronger you will grow mentally towards tackling challenges.
6. Relationships Are Not There To Complete You:
No matter how perfect your relationship is, it will not bring you a wholesome life until you figure out who you are and what you want in life. Even couples who are married will say that true happiness must come from within.
