1. Opening up to someone really quick
As human beings, we tend to turn to those we feel confident in, but alas, not all of them are worth our trust. It happens sometimes that we have emotional connections with people to who we spill our secrets and other stuff to. It’s best not to do that until you’ve built up a strong relationship and trust between you and the person you’re talking to. It is a rule of life not to trust anyone too quickly.
2. Faking yourself
Be true to yourself and to others. Although you don’t want to seem fake, you realize that this is the way society expects you to act. Don’t try to fit in; find out who you are, and do what you can. It can be exhausting and difficult to pretend to be someone you’re not, so avoid it before it’s too late!
3. Cutting off with people
While there are a lot of crappy people in the world, there are also some decent individuals! There is no reason to cut off contact with someone just because you had an argument with them. Before deciding to exclude someone from your life, resolve any problems you may have with them. Having a little bit of patience and forgiving can prevent you from ending a good relationship. To motivate you, inspire you, and tell you that you can succeed in life, you need to socialize and make friends.
4. Not standing up for yourself or someone
Have you ever seen a small guy being bullied by a large one? What did you do? Did you just stand by and watch? When you think about what you could have done in the past, you will regret this in life. Take action against bad things happening in society, and you will see a difference.
5. Not valuing the good phase of life
Take a moment to appreciate what you have right now, instead of dwelling on the future! By the time you start thinking about the future, the happy time will be gone. You will be satisfied with your life if you live in the present, love yourself without regrets, and love others as well. When you are having a good time, enjoy it and when you are having a bad time, try to cope with it positively.
6. Not giving time to your loved ones
I think everyone should take time to spend with their loved ones, especially with their family, spouse, and friends, no matter how busy they are. Prioritize them above everything else, because you might lose them for good if you are too hectic. Living and enjoying yourself with your loved ones is all about living, so why not join in on the fun?
7. Not living the life you want to
Even I am guilty of it. Due to embarrassment, shyness, guts, etc., I often miss out on important opportunities in life. That’s where I’m going wrong. My personal mantra is to stop caring about people and live my life how I want. People will always judge me regardless of what I do or what I enjoy. Life’s biggest regret can be this. Live each day as if it were your last!
8. Not taking care of your health
The last and most important anecdote. Always, always take good care of yourself. Your health should always come first. You don’t want to fall terribly ill only to regret later what you could’ve done. I can attest to this from personal experience. Stay fit by eating healthily and avoiding junk food. Stay fit by finding a simple way that works for you. Your body will thank you for treating it with amazing (healthy) food.
