What You Need to Give Up to Be Happy

This list of 15 items tells you what you need to give up to be happy. The originator of this list is Luminita Saviuc, also known as the Purpose Fairy.

Luminita says,

Luminita Daniela SaviucHere is a list of 15 things which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier. We hold on to so many things that cause us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering – and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy – we cling on to them. Not anymore. Starting today we will give up on all those things that no longer serve us, and we will embrace change.

1. Give up your need to always be right

2. Give up your need for control

3. Give up on blame

4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk

5. Give up your limiting beliefs

6. Give up complaining

7. Give up the luxury of criticism

8. Give up your need to impress others

9. Give up your resistance to change

10. Give up labels

11. Give up on your fears

12. Give up your excuses

13. Give up the past

14. Give up attachment

15. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations

I would add to this list:

16. Give up the idea that meditation is difficult and the you don’t have time to do it.

You might also consider to be grateful for what you have right now in this life. Remember, “To desire what you don’t have is to waste what you do have.” You can make it a daily practice to think of three things you are grateful for each night before you go to bed.

What would you add to this list for your personal happiness?
