Could it be that sometimes you take life way too seriously? Do you tend to let the small things bother you? Inch by inch, you allow insignificant annoyances to crawl up your skin. Do you allow certain people to get on your nerves to the point that they live in your head rent-free? It’s time you stopped taking some parts of life so seriously. It’s not good for your mental health and it certainly won’t make your life that much more enjoyable. But for some people, giving up their personality traits isn’t in their nature. So you have to be reminded of how to react to situations that drive you up the wall when they shouldn’t.
The way you dress
Are you a supermodel? Do you strut down a catwalk with designer clothes on? Do you get followed around by paparazzi? No, you don’t. So why do you care so much about what other people think of your fashion sense? Wearing the kind of clothes that you want and you like, shouldn’t be complicated by the opinions of what other people might think. So many people, both men, and women are self-conscious about their body image and whether or not they’re trendy enough. The more you worry about what other people think, the less you care about what you like. Happiness cannot be validated by other people, either you live a life worth leading for yourself or you’re a slave to your own paranoia.
Those annoying disturbances
In this day and age, our information is flying across the world at break-neck speeds. If you’ve ever bought anything online, your data is being read by a company somewhere right now. It’s quite an incredible technological achievement because, businesses that offer products and services that you would most like, know who you are before you have even heard of them. And yet, they do make those annoying calls when you’re trying to relax at home. Not everyone is shopping 24/7, but they will burst into your daily life whenever they feel like it. So it’s time to start terrorizing telemarketers that won’t leave you alone. Make out as if you’ve been expecting their call, be overly-chatty and friendly, act as if they’re a long lost friend. Keep chatting to them about things they wouldn’t know about, but you act as if they do. Sooner or later, they’ll take the hint that you’re playing them like a fiddle. It’s fun and harmless but gets your point across. It’s better to joke around with them than to scream down the phone at one of their employees.
You’d be surprised at how easily one can become enraged in traffic jams. The feeling of not moving anywhere, getting later and later as each second ticks by, can send anyone off into a tirade. But hey, you can’t change anything, the traffic won’t move quicker the louder you shout. You just have to not take it so seriously and just let it play out.
We all tend to take life too seriously from time to time. But there are various situations whereby you need not get worked up over such minor things.
