A life without sorrows is boring. A life without challenges and hardships is pointless. A life without purpose is lonely and depressing.
The challenges and hardships help us grow and become a better version of ourselves. They make us strive to live the life we want.
However, some of us break when facing them. We isolate ourselves. We build walls. We start to hate life. We start to hate the people that caused us pain. We become lonely and weak. We want to blame the others for what happened to us. Worse, some of us will turn to prohibited drugs and drinking too much alcohol, while the others sadly turned to suicide.
To pursuit happiness and have a carefree life, there are seven rules that we need to consider applying:
1. “Make peace with your past so it won’t disturb your future.”
Your past may not be nice. You may have encountered people who broke your heart. But this does not mean you cannot be happy today and tomorrow. Don’t let the past destroy your future. Deal with your past. Try acceptance. Not all things can be in your favor. You cannot please everyone. The past is the past. Move on. If you failed in the past, it does not mean you will always fail. Challenge yourself. Don’t let the past ruin your present that can lead to a more ruined future.
