We all know that change is scary, but we also know how regret can affect our lives in the bigger picture. Making a change isn’t always easy, but going out of your comfort zone may make you see the true meaning of life.
Often in our lives, we settle for something we think is permanent, and when something goes out of our way, we feel like we’re in an endless pit of struggle. We blame ourselves for circumstances that errors were inevitable. Sometimes, these mistakes are based on the views of others that we tend to mask our own. Maybe we’re in need of a life change, don’t we?
Here are three major signs you probably don’t notice that may need you to go in a different direction:
You compare yourself with other people
We are different people with different paths to take. Some may be in the same direction as you at a different speed, but that doesn’t mean you have the same destination.
It also doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re all going in a straight line. Go out there and make a turn; it might lead you in a better direction.
You romanticize the past to escape the present
Bottled up emotions don’t often come out on good days. Most often than not, we end up exploding when things aren’t going the way we want them to be. We often associate the past with the present and keep ourselves locked up in memories we can no longer go back to.
It’s toxic. Stop looking back at things you no longer can control and start looking straight ahead, where life is instantaneous yet exciting.
You let minor nuisances become major obstacles
Small things lead to bigger things, don’t they? If a bottle is filled with 299ml of positivity and 1ml of negativity, would you taste that tiny portion of trouble?
You see, these small problems are not always easy to resolve, but making them bigger than they already are won’t do you any good. You’ll lose grip of what really matters – the outcome.
We can go on and on with many other things that may have affected your life at present, but we sometimes don’t realize that our choices make us who we are. If one tiny step could make a major change in your life, why not take it?
