9 things to remember

  1. Stop taking so much notice of how you feel. How you feel is how you feel. It’ll pass soon.
  2. Let go of worrying. It often makes things worse. The more you think about something bad, the more likely it is to happen.
  3. Ease up on the internal life commentary. If you want to be happy, stop thinking that you know what people think about you. Most of it’s imagination.
  4. Take no notice of your inner critic. Judging yourself is pointless. Judging others is half-witted.
  5. Give up on feeling guilty. Guilt changes nothing. If you feel guilty about something you’ve done, either do something to make it right or accept that you freakin screwed up and try not to do so again. 
  6. Stop being concerned what the rest of the world says about you. What people think about you is none of your business.
  7. Don’t be concerned that your life and career aren’t working out the way you planned. Try to stick to a plan. But don't base your life around one specific plan.
  8. Don’t let others use you to avoid being responsible for their own decisions. To hold yourself responsible for someone else’s success and happiness demeans them and proves you’ve lost the plot. It’s their life. THEY have to live it. You can’t do it for them OR can you stop them from messing it up if they’re determined to do so.
  9. Don’t worry about about your personality. You don’t really have one. Personality, like ego, is a concept invented by your mind. It doesn’t exist in the real world. Personality is a word for the general impression that you give through your words and actions. If your personality isn’t likeable today, don’t worry. You can always change it, so long as you allow yourself to do so.  If you don’t like the way you are, make yourself different. You’re the only person who’s standing in your way.
