- Unable to forgive. Hold grudges. Can’t let go.
- Dwell on past mistakes. No one is perfect. Learning from our mistakes is a way to grow and become a better person. Get over yourself and move on.
- Fume about something every day. Politics, people, mandates, the weather, and a host of other immaterial things. One way to get people to avoid you..
- Beat yourself up. Focus on failures, instead of accomplishments.
As you can see, everything on the list is about negativity. Reject anything associated with it, such as hate, jealousy, self-absorption, etc. The key to happiness is staying positive.
I like this quote by Walt Whitman: “Keep your face always toward the sunshine—and shadows will fall behind you.”
