15 Sep 10 things happy people do NOT do!
Two of the most amazing emotions one can feel are positivity and happiness. Happiness and positivity could really turn things around 180 degrees and could cause you to feel like you’re on top of the world. They are contagious and transfer easily to other people. Happiness causes relaxation and comfort whenever it’s found and creates a positive aura you can feel.
Can you think of how happiness makes you healthy? Well, when you’re happy or excited, you feel relaxation and comfort. Although life always keeps us on tiptoes with all the surprises it gives us, we need to remain strong and sustain our happiness.
Here’s a good analogy of happiness: Think of a road map. Happiness is like the highway of all highways: one of the biggest roads in a city. And just like main roads have side roads, happiness has side roads, too. These side roads represent the various benefits and blessings associated with being happy. Each benefit, or road in this case, has a different length and a different number of lanes. The length would represent how long-lasting the benefit is, and the number of lanes would represent how many areas of life are benefited.
Happiness is something that feeds the body, mind, and soul. It provides and boosts self-esteem and self-worth. Happiness is something that, depending on the person, could be endless and boundless. Now, sometimes people are tricked and think that they’re happy while they’re not. All we need to do is think of what happiness is to us. Just remember that happiness might be different from one person to another, and is priceless.
Let’s just mention that real happiness is found in giving,helping others, and contributing to society; therefore, go ahead and volunteer to draw smiles on other’s faces.
Below are some things that happy people do NOT do:
1. Take More Than They Give
Ever tried applying the concept of giving? As Ben Carson says, “Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.” Do you agree with this? Well, if you have tried giving to others, you know that this provides such a satisfying sense of fulfillment.
Let’s take money as an example. Some studies of happiness have found that after reaching the stage where you have enough money for the basic necessities, there are only two ways money could help further. One of those ways is by moving you up the social chart, and the other way is by giving some away. Thus, making money could be a way to end unhappiness. So why not start thinking about helping others with the money we are blessed with, and make a positive contribution to the world?
2. Be Part Of Drama
Drama is something that could cause a lot of problems to an individual and to others in their circle, too. Are you the type of person that minds his own business, or do you like to know more about others and ask, “Who did this,” and “Who did that?” Well, getting caught up in other people’s business and relationships can bring drama to your house, something you do not want to happen.
If you stress about who said what to whom and what happened to this and that person, etc., things could get out of control. Happy people tend to look, think, and occupy their brains with things they control or have some control over. Taking care of your life while allowing others to live theirs could be the simplest act to ensure and maximize happiness.
However, don’t get this wrong. It’s not meant that we shouldn’t have friends and check on them, or maybe even help them with their issues. We just don’t need to ask about things they did or don’t want to talk about.
3. Be Ungrateful
Being grateful is a very appealing characteristic, because it can make a person very happy. A nice quote goes as follows: “It is not happy people that are thankful. It is thankful people that are happy.”
Gratitude can cover being appreciative and thankful for all the blessings one has, the way people treat them, the beauty of the world, and many other things.
Be grateful for the things you have, because that brings about satisfaction and positive energy in everyday life. Have you ever spent time being envious and wanting what other people have? Do you think this gets you anywhere? I understand that it is a natural feeling or thought, but we need to practice being content with what we already have so that we stay happy and appreciate life…
