Have you ever thought, what would your life be if you had taken few decisions differently? Maybe you would have been a little more happier than you are now, or maybe you could have saved yourself from some trouble. Each decision that we make in our lives determines how they turn out. Sometime the decisions we make take us to the wrong path and sometime to the right path. Sometime we come across failure and sometime we enjoy the success. But once we take a decision , it cannot be flip-flopped. Once you made a bad decision in the past, it remains with you. You can’t go back in time to change things. But suppose, you get a chance to give some advice to your younger self, what would it be?
If I get this chance, I would give her 7 advices for sure.
1. DON’T LET YOUR EMOTIONS CONTROL YOU.
Over Sensitive and Emotional people tend to sympathise more with others. Although it is a boon as you can understand other’s sorrow well. But, it is a curse too. When it comes to making decisions which involve other’s sentiments, you always tend to drift towards one conclusion, i.e, “Don’t be selfish” and you end of making decisions beneficial for them but sometimes toxic for you. So stop making decisions emotionally and start thinking rationally.
2. DON’T OVERTHINK
There is a 5 by 5 Rule.
“If its not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes being upset about it.”
3. SOCIALIZE MORE
It’s totally okay to be an introvert, where you’re shyer and value alone time more than spending time with others, but if you’re anxious about being around others or you isolate yourself too much, it might lead to loneliness and a worsened quality of life. Also, if you don’t interact with people now, it will make you hesitant lately.
4. CHANGES ARE NOT YOUR FOE.
Life is a series of spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only steal the joy. Although it hurts to see things or people changing over the time. But that’s all a part of life. Accept the fact- “No matter what, Life moves on”.”
5. LEARN TO SAY “NO”
Sometimes, of course, we say yes. We’re delighted to help out. But saying yes just because you don’t want to look rude is anything but not delightful.
People will take advantage of you if you end up saying yes to everything.
6. STOP LIVING IN THE PAST
As it has been said in the Popular tv series How I met your mother ( which my younger self hasn’t watched:P)
“The future is scary, but you can’t just run back to the past because its familiar. Yes, it’s tempting, but, it’s a mistake.”
7. BE HAPPY
Accept the fact that everything happens for a reason. And don’t let bad experiences steal your happiness.
