5 Things You Shouldn’t Worry About

September 8, 2016

It often seems that living in complete peace is almost impossible. We always find a new reason to worry, and to be honest, I’m sure you are more successful when it comes to worrying than keeping calm.

Of course there are things that deserve your attention enough to address them. Others are easier to solve with a little effort. And finally, there are those that are completely out of your control. Here we bring you a list of things you shouldn’t worry about. Take notes and free yourself from the burdens you don’t need in your life.

1. Your debts

We all have to pay bills and taxes. You need to eat every day and every month you earn enough to meet your personal expenses. But worrying about your debts does not make much sense. I’m not telling you to become an irresponsible person and stop paying them now.

What I suggest is that instead of having your mind occupied by listing each debt and thinking you do not have enough to get ahead, focus on creating a strategy. Instead of worrying you need to act. You can be sure that even if you lost everything today, your life will always continue.

A lot of people have gone through very difficult economic situations. Perhaps you think that if today you run out of assets you could not do anything. But remember that every situation, as bad as it is, always has a door or window that you can take advantage of.

2. The opinions of others

We all have an opinion about everything. And of course, everyone has an opinion about you, what you are and what you look like, and this is according to what they have learned about you. But, how much do you really care about what other people think of you? Do you make every effort to be liked by everybody or would you rather be authentic?

The problem with worrying about meeting the expectations of others is that in the process you can lose yourself. Some people do have opinions that should interest you, like your family, your partner, your friends. But this does not mean you should act the way they expect you to every time. You are an independent person who should go along your own path, as long as you are not harming others or yourself.

3. The past

You’re lugging a lot of baggage: your past. But you’re not alone, each person deals with their previous experiences in the best way they can. Sometimes this baggage is light because you had a bearable life, surrounded by people you loved and who always supported you. Other times, the story of life is more complex and dealing with it is not that simple.

The reality is that we have all faced obstacles in our past. No need to run away from it or reason to worry or be ashamed of it. In the end, it is what has led you to be who you are. Learn from your experiences, be grateful for what you had and continue. The past no longer exists and there is no use concentrating on it. Take the opportunity to live in the present.

4. Earning a lot of money

There are people who go through life governed only by the need to accumulate money. No matter how much they may have, they are always looking for ways to cut costs and have more and more money. Of course it is good to have a financial “cushion” but if the sole purpose of your life is money, perhaps it is time to take a look at how your personal relationships are.

Having money is not going to make you happy. I’m not saying go out today and spend all your income. But you should spend less time thinking about money and more time investing in yourself, in your hobbies, in your dreams and everything that represents something important in your life.

5. The lives of others

Knowing that your loved ones are okay and supporting them when they need shows that you care. But worrying about the lives of others all the time does not bring you anything and probably ends up being a bit annoying for them.

If you spend most of your time worrying about the lives of others, yours won’t advance to everything it could. There is no point in trying to be like someone else, just be yourself and live your life.
