Life is full of challenges, ups and downs that we cannot get rid of altogether as this is the reality of life. However, do you think you can attempt to find your happiness with in this big puddle of water? It is possible to be happy regardless of what your situation is if you implement the right tools and have the right thought process and mentality.
Now, on the other hand, in the same situation people could make the wrong decisions or take the wrong route and end up in the middle of nowhere. This is why we need to start acting and gradually eliminating the possibilities of unhappiness. This starts with knowing the signs that may show that you are unhappy. After that we can tackle the cause of our unhappiness and move forward, becoming more and more positive.
Here are 3 signs that you are not happy:
1. You Are Negative
This is a common situation we often fall in, and the worst part is that we sometimes do not realize it. Are you such a negative person, or do you always look at the full half of the cup? Let us take an example. So you come back from work or had just woken up and getting ready to go to work when an argument starts.
Whether it is you that started it or another member of the family, this scenario produces negative energy that is transferrable. To make matters worse, since you had a bad day yesterday or are unhappy, you too toss your negativity in there and escalate the fire.
Imagine the scenario mentioned here. How can you solve or reduce the impact of this situation? Well, you could always try to be positive and remain calm, tackle the problem and why it happened, and search for a suitable solution.
2. You Are Ungrateful
Ever been told by a family member or parent that you need to look in the mirror when you are acting or look unhappy? We sometimes do not realize our face expressions and actions when we are unhappy. One of the reasons why we could be unhappy is because we are ungrateful. This is when you look at others and what they have rather than looking at all the blessings we have. Moreover, once a blessing we had is gone, we then start to appreciate all the things we have. Always make it a habit to be grateful for what you have.
3. Living In The Past
Do you always go back to the past and focus on the things you did that you regret or do not feel proud of? Well, this is a sign that you are unhappy. Let us break this habit and start looking only one way, forward. Living in the present can save you a lot of trouble because you do not worry what happened in the past and just consider it a new, fresh start. Looking to the past is only beneficial when you go back and look at the mistakes you have made to learn from them. Other than that, there is no reason why we should look to the past and cause ourselves to be unhappy.
There are many reasons and signs that someone is unhappy; however, challenges and bad situations could always be looked at from a happy side, which will help us maintain a healthy lifestyle and reduce one of our worst enemies, stress.
