1. Don’t be too dependent on other people.

When you are dependent on other people or on a certain job and you fail to set up things that can help you achieve independence financial or socially, it would affect you later in life because there might come a time when the people that usually assist you stop assisting you.

So don’t make the mistake of depending too much on other people to survive, aim to become independent and self-sufficient without other people.

2. Stop leaving your life to impress others.

In order to live a happy life you need to understand yourself, focus on developing yourself, and you need to partake in activities that makes you feel happy and fulfilled. Unfortunately in today’s world a lot of people do not understand themselves, hence they constantly compare themselves to other people and this mistake ends up making them feel miserable.

Stop living your life to impress other people, doing so would only stress you out and cause you to lack confidence in yourself. Live a life you love, work on your hobbies, work on your goals and become the best version of yourself.

3. Don’t overthink your problems.

Overthinking cannot solve your problems, rather what it does is that it affects your health negatively. In some cases overthinking can even cause chest pain and depression, so this is why you need to avoid this habit at all costs. Life is full of ups and downs, it is filled with disappointment, frustration and problems, but life is also beautiful and filled with blessed days.

If you want to live a long and happy life, then you need to stop focusing on your problems or on things that makes you feel unhappy, rather focus on the good things that life has to offer. I am not saying you should not think about your problems, but don’t let those problems overwhelme you or bring you down.

4. Don’t let your attitude chase away the right person for you.

Some people have the mindset that one day they would meet the right person for them, and that person is going to like them for who they are no matter how they behave. But the mistake here is that these set of people with this mindset often fail to improve on themselves, especially when they have certain bad habits that turn people off.

If you have a bad habit and you are hoping that a person that would like that bad habit will come along, then you are only fantasizing because even if you met the right person for you, they would only tolerate your bad character to a certain degree before leaving you. So learn to work on yourself so that your character won’t chase people away from you.
