Top 10 Toxic Things You Should Let Go In 2020
This year, choose happiness. Improve your life by letting go of these 10 toxic things and harmful habits.
1. In 2020, stop worrying about the things you can't control.
While worrying is normal, always focusing on the things that could go wrong isn't a healthy habit. Whenever you encounter a difficult situation, ask yourself if you can find a solution to fix it. If it's in your power to solve it, then do it. If it isn't, worrying won't fix anything, either
2. Let go of all grudges.
As long as you hold grudges, you won't be able to enjoy the beautiful things in your life. People have disappointed you, you're angry and can't forgive them. While it's natural, it's also harming your mental health and well-being, without affecting in any way the people who have wronged you. So, is it worth it? Focus on the people who bring joy and happiness in your life, instead.
3. Let go of unrealistic expectations.
Aiming high is great, but try setting realistic goals, so you won't get disappointed. We all want to have successful careers, more money, and perfect marriages, but life isn't a checklist. The more pressure you put on yourself, the more frustrated you'll feel when things don't work out.
4. Leave your past behind.
Carrying your emotional baggage demands a lot of effort and energy. Take a moment to analyze it, learn your lesson, and move on. Leave the negative emotions behind you, and only carry the lessons from here on.
5. In 2020, stop giving in to unhealthy habits.
A healthy lifestyle can make a huge positive impact on your life. Giving up junk food, smoking or excessive drinking will boost your energy and improve your mood. If you combine a healthy diet with a bit of exercising, you can change your life completely and become healthier, happier, and more confident.
6. This year, stop comparing your life to others.
Scrolling on social media is often so disappointing. You see others traveling to countries you can't afford to see, couples who look so much happier than you and your spouse, and parents who are so happy with their perfect kids. In reality, each story is unique, and every person has their own issues. They don't post it on the internet, or 'brag' about them in real life, either. But everyone deals with something, so don't compare your life to theirs.
7. Stop trying to please everyone, and start focusing on yourself.
By trying to please everyone else, we often forget about us. We care so much about others' approval, that we forget to take care of our needs. It's ok to want to fit in or be accepted, but it's also ok to say NO from time to time. You can't please everyone anyway, so how about making yourself happy first, then worry about others?
8. Let go of your pride.
Pride is the reason so many relationships end, by blinding you from seeing your own faults. It's so important to stay humble and try to see things from different perspectives. Learn from your mistakes, and don't let your ego stay in the way of friendship, love, or other social connections.
9. Quit listening to what other people think and say about you.
What others think or say about you shouldn't matter. People will judge and gossip anyway, whatever you do, and the best and only thing is you can do about it is to stop listening. Do your thing, live your life on your own terms, and do whatever makes you happy.
10. Toxic relationships.
In 2020, it's time to end the toxic relationships in your life. All the fake people who pretend to be your friends, while talking behind your back, all those who only bring negativity into your life, and all those who take and take, without ever giving back, should have no place in your life. They don't contribute to your well being in any way, so why waste precious time and energy on them?
