Hi, darlings, this week’s blog post is all about gaining (more) inner peace. Last year I took a lot of time to go inward, reflect and journal. There are specific actions and behaviours that I must avoid to gain more inner peace. Today I want to share with you ten things I stopped doing to attain peace in my life. Here goes:
Pretending to be happy when I am not.
I do want to say that pretending to be happy for others’ sake is not necessarily wrong. It can even be an indication of your moral regard to others’ wellbeing. I believe that it becomes self-destructive when you find yourself pretending more and more to a point you are not yourself at all.
Continually dwelling in the past or future.
Overthinking kills every once of peace in my body. My past is to learn from there is nothing I can do to change it. But I can learn from it and let it go.
It only left me feeling unhappier, to be honest. I ended up feeling overwhelmed and anxious. The pressure to be happy all the time takes a toll.
