1. The Past
Repeating bad thoughts in your head about past events in your life takes time away from being happy in the here and now.
2. the future
Uncertainty can be a scary thing to ponder, and uncertainty about the future can be even more so. But by constantly worrying about the future, we prevent ourselves from living in the present moment.
Do you worry about aging?
Life is a marathon, not a race. Understandably, we may feel stress, anxiety, fear, worry, and question how many decades we have under our belt. But instead of worrying about it, try to focus on the present moment.
4. People's opinions.
Are you worried that people will judge you? Are you afraid to post on social media for fear that people will think badly of you?
You may consciously or unconsciously seek approval from the people you surround yourself with. Whether it's parents, friends, classmates, or even people you don't see often, you can let others control your life and do what they like. Or you can give a damn about other people's opinions and live your life the way you want, because life is too short.
Are you always trying to achieve perfection?
Are you afraid of making mistakes? That's normal. We were taught this fear in school, when they gave us D's for making mistakes. But in fact, making mistakes is what allows us to grow. After all, when we make mistakes, we understand what we need to improve, where to move forward, and this is what allows us to develop, not stand still.
And remember, there are no perfect people in the world, everyone makes mistakes, so allow yourself to make mistakes and be non-ideal.
Are you afraid of waking up every day, forcing yourself to do the same chore for a paycheck?
Earning money is a constant struggle. After all, we need to support our physiological and safety needs. But the constant pursuit of greater material well-being is a worry best abandoned. After all, you can live without a fur coat or walk around with not the latest iPhone. So instead of worrying about money, refocus and try to achieve a more fulfilling life that is unique to you.
7. Something out of your control.
Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.
Some people who resist this view believe that they prevent bad situations from happening by gaining more control. But really all they're really doing is wasting time and energy managing the little things and worrying about things beyond their control. We can't control, for example, global warming or the spread of a coronavirus infection around the world, so why worry about it? Just switch your mind to something else, pick up the phone and call someone or start reading a book.
