I know letting go is really a burdensome task. No matter how much we try, there are some thoughts that are still haunting us in various ways. You may experience them in your dream or your behavior. But you need to understand that life is full of changes and these fluctuations make us a better person. Perhaps, we may take control in our life to be a better person.

Life is unpredictable, so no matter how much we think of making it best it will end up with some relentless changes that we may like or not.

There are many things in our life that are holding us back each passing day. Sometimes we are not aware what to do and how to do, but don’t worry!

In this article we will share those important things that you must “let go” from your life to achieve happiness.

Things You Need To Let Go To Find Happiness:

1. I Have Let Go “Self Criticism”

“You’ve been criticising yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” ― Louise Hay

Start accepting yourself in every way! You must be mindful and positive by your thoughts. There are various techniques that can help you to calm your mind. There are multiple workarounds by which you can stop self-criticism. One of them is to simply rephrase your thoughts.

For example: I was late at the office because I can never do anything correctly. Now transform this negative thought into a positive one, by saying I was late at office because there was traffic. Accept yourself and let go self-criticism!

 Understand everyone has their own journey in life. Some people may have bitter experiences and others may witness happy life but whatever it is, make sure you should focus on your own. Don’t be judgmental when it comes to other people’s life because you are not aware of what they are or have gone through. Another big question, why do you even bother to talk about them? Think and answer in the comment section below!

3. I Have Let Go “Chasing Happiness”

Happiness is everywhere my friend. All you need is the right perception to look at it. Stop chasing happiness about imagining the future, and other related stuff. I know many of you may have a habit of daydreaming that includes success, getting a car, living in our dream house and so on. This will not help you until you are not ready to work hard. Start embracing the present moment and stop chasing happiness in any form.

4. I Have Let Go “Pleasing Others”

I agree we want to be admired and loved by everyone. When we are adored by others we start to love our life even more. I accept, pleasing other people is natural because when we start liking them pleasing comes naturally. But everything has its limitations; similarly adoring others is also acceptable in limits only. Start loving yourself! This is important and needed.

 “Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz

5. I Have Let Go To “Blame Others”

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, it will not change you. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” ~Wayne Dyer

 When you blame others, you are giving valuable time or energy to them. So, stop blaming it will not give you anything in return. Instead it will ruin your inner peace and trust me it is not worth your time. Look after your actions and deeds.
