8 Uncomfortable Truths We Need To Accept





Are you happy now, at this very moment? If you are unhappy, what is keeping you from experiencing happiness?

We all want to feel happy, and each of us has different ways of getting there. Here are 8 uncomfortable truths that we need to accept in order to bring more happiness into our life:

1.) Happiness is where you are now, or nowhere at all.

It’s not a new relationship, it’s not a new job, it’s not a completed goal, and it’s not a new car.

Until you give up on the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are.

2.) Quitting is for winners.

Contrary to popular opinion, quitting is for winners.

Knowing when to quit, change direction, leave a toxic situation, demand more from life, give up on something that isn’t working and move on, is a very important skill that people who win at life all seem to have.

But don’t quit because it’s hard. Quit because it sucks.

3.) If they really wanted to, they would.

If you apply pressure, they’ll do what you want them to. If you take the pressure off, you’ll see what they’d rather do.

Never waste your life fighting what someone would rather do.

Let them go. Move on. Do better.

4.) Taking no risk is a bigger risk.

You have to risk failure to succeed. You have to risk rejection to be accepted. You have to risk heartbreak to love.

If you’re always avoiding risk, you’re risking missing out on life.

5.) Call yourself out.

The most common reason on why people keep making the same mistakes is because their insecure ego prevents them from taking responsibility for their own bull****, their own toxic traits and their own mistakes.

You have to call yourself out. Calling yourself out means you care more about your future, your progress and your happiness, than just protecting your ego.

6.) Closure is your choice.

Closure isn’t an apology, or justice, or answers. That’s insecurity.

If the situation made you feel awful, seeking closure by reopening it is insanity.

Closure isn’t something they can give you. Closure is moving on. Closure is your choice.

7.) If you’re happy alone, you’ll be happier together.

There is no type of affection that can fill the void in a person who doesn’t love themselves already.

There is no independence in dependency.

There is no personal security in attaching yourself to a secure person.

Until you have a healthy relationship, you won’t make healthy decisions about someone else.

8.) It’s not your job to fix damaged people.

Your responsibility to help someone will never outweigh their responsibility to help themselves.

But, it’s worth asking yourself why you resonated so strongly with someone that so desperately needed “fixing” in the first place.

Often, our own toxic and non-romantic attachments tell a story about an issue we have within ourselves.
