There are many instances when you let go of things because it’s the easier thing to do and because you realize that not everything needs to be invested in with so much energy.
But the truth is that handling every situation, no matter how big or small, can bring drastic changes in your life and you can look back and be proud of yourself instead of regretting it.
Here are those instances and how to handle them:
1. Forgive and forget
We often accept apologies from people who hurt us by telling them two words: “it’s okay.” But what we don’t do is invest time into explaining them why it hurt us and why they shouldn’t do it again to anyone else.
If you don’t talk it out with them, you are likely to have the conversation a thousand times in your mind and feel uneasy about never letting it out. This may lead to a toxic behavior or negative vibes. To ensure that doesn’t happen, open up no matter how much courage it takes, sort it out and then move on.
2. Learn to say “no”
When we are young, we are often under the pressure of our friends or family to accept certain things. In order to avoid drama, we accept them as they come our way. This can lead to a built up of frustrations and you may end up erupting. To avoid that, say ‘no’ even if it hurts the other person. It will save you from a lifetime of hurt.
3. Have a healthy routine
Don’t be too caught up by the punk like attitude of those who say “ we all are going to die anyway”.
Even if you are going to die one day, make sure you suffer that day only and live the rest of the days in good health. Youth fades away quicker than you think. To feel healthy, you have to look healthy. Make sure you are not indulging yourself in habits that you will regret later.
4. Take time out for loved ones
Life can indulge you in a lot of meaningless things and it is your responsibility to get out of that mess and prioritize things if you don’t want to lose out on precious moments. Your parents and childhood friends are eventually going to depart from you. Make sure you give them enough quality time for a lifetime of good memories. Keep them close and tell them how much they mean to you.
5. Face your anxieties
The more you step out of your comfort zone, the less everything will come crawling at you to scare you away from your goals. You can fight your demons no matter the situation because all the fear is in your brain. From there you can decide to fight it or let it overshadow your dreams.
6. Make a mistake but don’t repeat it
Making mistakes is a part of being human but repeating the same one is nothing but a foolish attitude that will only lead you astray. Learn from your past and don’t let it take over your future.

7. Work on your goals
It is easy to make a to-do list but not so easy to follow up on it. However, if you do, you will feel a sense of achievement like never before. It is like challenging yourself. The moment when you are your own victor. It feels amazing to achieve the milestones that you and no one else sets for yourself.
8. De-clutter your life
Materialism may make your life easier, especially with the advent of technology, but don’t give your heart away to an object. Give it as much worth as it is meant for. The more you attach yourself to materialism, the less attachment you will feel for humans and the emotions will start messing up. Keep fewer things in your bedroom, even your brain will start functioning better when it has fewer decisions to make!
9. Move on
Life is a play of ups and downs. You will stumble and fall and get stuck but you must never give up completely. Take a rest if you want to, to get your head back into the game with a fresh perspective.
