Three Things That Make You Unhappy


There are 3 things that make you unhappy.

The desire to always be in control, the need to be approved, and the tendency to judge others.

You can’t control everything.

You are not God, worrying about things you have no control over is useless.

You can’t control other people’s choices. You CAN’T and shouldn’t force them to like what you like, believe what you believe.

The only person you have control over is yourself. The only thing you can control is how you respond.

It’s impossible to please everybody, even Jesus can’t.

Being neutral is hard, you are either black or white. We should respect that.

Stick to your values and live a life of integrity. What you say should be what you do.

If someone doesn’t like it, so be it. Stand firm on your beliefs.

Don’t be concerned about how others define you. Why should you attempt to please people who don’t care for you anyway?

Most of the time, they really don’t care that you’re alive. Criticisms are usually careless.

Judging someone else makes you lose your opportunity for growth.

Focus on the dirt of others, tendency is you overlook yours.

Life is short. Don’t waste it trying to right the wrongs of the one sitting beside you when you have so many yourself.

Learn, grow, improve, and maybe one day someone will see how you live your life and become inspired of righting their own wrongs. Your life is your message.

No matter how much fault you find in another, it will not improve you.

What will improve you are your decisions and actions to improve. Discipline.

Three solutions to counter these three things that make you unhappy:

Can’t control everything? Trust God.

Can’t please everybody? Focus on pleasing God.

Want to stop being judgmental? Humble self before God.
