10 habits of chronically unhappy people

Sometimes people don't notice when they are happy. If someone would ask them what this concept means to them, they can be at a loss with the answer. However when someone is unhappy, they are well aware of it and understand when such feeling has seized them. Many people blame life's circumstances. However, according to researchers, only the person themselves can make themselves happy, and there is no hardship that can stop them. Habits also play the large role because some of them are a straight line to unhappiness. We offer you a list of 10 of the most essential habits you have to leave behind if you want to begin enjoying life.

Hoping for the future

One of the main habits which won't allow you to become the happy person is phrases like "I will be happy when I find new work / when my salary will be higher / when I will have a new partner, etc. It doesn't matter how you finish this sentence. Remember that in this case you put everything on circumstances which don't depend on you a little. Therefore you shouldn't expect something illusive, and have to work on your life right now. Focus on what is important for you today, and happiness will knock at your door soon.

Spending too much time and effort on purchasing of status things

Many people, beginning to earn more, usually convince themselves that buying things makes them happier. And it seems to the majority that the higher is income, the better they feel. However a lot of researches show that's not exactly true. When you pursue money and expensive things, you risk being disappointed when you get them. You realize that they didn't cost the spent efforts at all. And time spent for getting them could have been spent on the hobbies and communication with family and friends that would have made you much happier.

Staying at home

When you feel unhappy, for certain you want to stay at home and not to see anyone. However such behavior can be called a big mistake. Of course, there are moments in our lives when we want to remain completely alone and to hide from people around. However if it becomes a tendency, then you will very quickly notice how your mood will begin to change to the worst. Therefore you should force yourself to leave the house, to communicate with people, and you will see how it will become easier for you.

Victimize yourself

Unhappy people usually convince themselves that they can't change anything in their lives. Therefore they think that they have no force to improve a situation. Such approach only strengthens their feeling of helplessness. But it is always worth remembering that all people encounter problems and difficulties. And you can get it together and resist to them, trying to change your life to the best.

Pessimism

Nothing is destroying happiness as much as pessimism. If you constantly think of and expect bad things, then, most likely, they will happen to you. And it is quite difficult to get off a pessimistic mind. However it is necessary to convince yourself that such thoughts are illogical. Make yourself look at the facts, and you will understand that actually it's not as bad as it seemed to you.

Habit to complain

If you begin to complain constantly, then you will have to live with never-ending anxiety. Such behavior is destructive for the personality. If we constantly convince ourselves that everything is bad, such thought will overcome any other thoughts soon. Talking about what disturbs you is extremely useful, but don't get used to complaining of everyone and everything. It is a straight way to becoming the unhappy person whom other people prefer to avoid.

Making a mountain out of a molehill

Bad things happen to each person. The difference is that happy people see them as temporary difficulties whereas unhappy persons consider them only as one more proof that the destiny is extremely ill-disposed to them. So, for example, if the ordinary person has a small accident on the way to work and will get off with a slight shock, then they will be glad that nothing more serious happened. Chronically unhappy person will see only one more proofs that this day, week, month, or perhaps all their life is bad for them.

Sweeping problems under the rug

Happy people are answerable for their actions. If they make a mistake, they are responsible for it. Unhappy people try to hide their problems and mistakes. And, as we know, if you would ignore a problem, then it will become even worse and will cause much more harm.

Not improving yourself

As unhappy people are pessimistic and don't try to control their lives, they sit and wait what will happen to them further. And instead of setting goals, learning, training and self-improvement they just wonder why nothing changes for the better in their life.

Comparing yourself to others

Jealousy and envy are feelings that won't help you to become happier in any way. Therefore if you constantly compare yourself to other people, it is time to stop.
