13 Useless Things to Give Up in Life

1. Let go of the need to always prove your point.

There are so many people among us who are simply not capable of tolerating any other point of view except for their own. But the truth is that wasting your time on unnecessary arguments and proving your point is simply not worth it.

2. Stop trying to control everything.

Give up the need to constantly control everything that happens in your life: people, situations, events, etc. Whether it is about your family, friends, colleagues, or strangers on the street, just let them be what they are.

As a matter of fact, the need to prove your point in arguments often stems from this inability to accept other people and their points of view.

3. Stop blaming others for your failures.

Free yourself of the need to blame others for what you have or do not have. Do not waste your energy on this and take full responsibility for your life.

4. Stop the negative self-talk.

So many people sabotage themselves because they allow their negative thoughts and emotions to control their lives. Do not trust anything that your inner critic says. You are better and more capable than you think.

5. Stop complaining.

Free yourself from the constant need to complain about things, people, events, and situations that make you unhappy and angry. Nothing can make you unhappy unless you allow it to.

6. Avoid criticism.

Do not criticize people who are different from you and situations that do not meet your expectations. All people are different.

7. Free yourself of the need to impress others.

Stop pretending and be who you really are. Remove the mask and have the courage to accept and love your true self.

8. Stop resisting change.

Changes are a normal part of life since they make us act and improve ourselves and evolve. They help us change our own lives, and the lives of others for the better.

9. Do not put stereotypes.

Stop labeling other people and events that you do not know or do not understand. Try to be open-minded no matter what. After all, we never really know what’s going on in other people’s lives and why they act the way they do.

10. Let go of the past.

Yes, it’s not easy. Especially when the past seems happier than the present, and the future appears to be a little scary. But you have to accept the fact that the present is all you have right now since the past has already gone and the future is not here yet.

11. Let go of fear.

Fear is nothing but an illusion, and it does not exist in the real world. You yourself created it in your head. Change your inner attitude and the outside world will fall into place.

12. Give up the habit of making excuses.

Most often we limit ourselves because of the many excuses, so give up this habit. You are never too old and it’s never too late to start a new chapter in your life.

13. Stop living your life according to other people’s expectations.

So many people live their lives according to what others think is better for them, doing what their friends, parents, teachers, and society expect of them. They ignore their inner voice because they are so busy fulfilling the expectations of others.

They forget what they really want, what makes them happy… and in the end, they give up their dreams and completely lose control of their life.

    “Let go of fear”- always try to stress that on my blog. You have to let go of fear and enter that state of uncomfort, so your body can switch to survive mode, and thrive.
