Building Positive Feelings
11:29:0 2024-04-20 168

1- Be yourself. When we try to be someone that we're not, it adds tons of stress, guilt, and unhappiness to our lives. We can hope all we want to be a different person than we are, but that's not really how people work! You just have to be yourself and embrace the person that you are.

  • Don't worry about what other people say or what they want you to be. It's not their life: it's yours.
  • Focus on doing the things that are true for you! Make sure to only say "yes" and "no" when you truly mean these things.
  • We're always growing and we're always evolving as humans. What resonates with you today might not resonate tomorrow, and making choices that are in alignment with who you are today is extremely important to be at peace with yourself.


2- Pursue what makes you happy. Life is all about getting to do things that bring you joy. When you live life really well, you perfectly balance doing the hard stuff, the fun stuff, and the stuff that helps others. Of course, some of us tend to focus too much on the hard stuff or we forget to take time out for ourselves. You have to pursue the things that make you happy, regardless of what other people think, or you will never feel fulfilled.

3- Take time out for yourself. Sometimes you need quiet time to focus on your own problems and decompress. It can be hard, in the loud mess that is life, to find time for this but it is very important for your own happiness and ability to handle the tough stuff in life.

  • Try taking a weekend away at the library to read and relax.
  • Sit alone for lunch sometimes to get away from the drama.


4- Help others. Helping others is one of the most powerful things we can do to give ourselves a sense of fulfillment and peace. Helping others give us a purpose and lets us feel like we accomplished something great. If you find that nothing else in life is giving you a sense of peace, try helping people in serious need.

  • You can volunteer at a local soup kitchen or at your local community center, tutoring for adult literacy classes.


5- Create goals. Having a goal that you can work for can really help when you're feeling lost and aimless. Really, what's the point in life if you don't have something to work towards, right? Find something that you want for yourself and then figure out what you have to do to pursue it. You'll find peace when you're working with all your soul devoted to a single goal.

  • Have you always wanted to learn how to play the piano maybe?
  • Maybe what you really want to do is have a child?
