Here are some things you can do to be happier, safer:
I swear to stop negative self-talk
When you feel discouraged by something, it can be easy for the evil negative self-talk (known as NST) to take over. Do not allow yourself to say (or think) things like, “I will never get a job” or “I will never be good enough.” When you focus on this negative mindset, these thoughts become motivational pacifiers.
In addition, NST can be a big and fat barrier between you and strong relationships with others. According to WebMD, People who think negatively tend to be less outgoing and have weaker social networks than positive thinkers. Studies link positive emotions to more fulfilling relationships. So, if you want to build a strong network, your first step is a more positive outlook on life!
Find a reason to smile every day
Whenever you feel low, try to find something to smile about (for example: take a fun online quiz, watch cute dog videos or check out funny lists). If you find yourself succumbing to negative emotions, allow yourself five minutes to find something to smile about. Honestly, it works!
Embrace your quirks
Think of this quote from Dr. Horse: “You have to be weird to be number one.”
Your little quirks make you who you are. They make you stand out from everyone. In a world where everyone is fighting to stand out from the crowd, there has never been a better time to embrace what makes you different. Oddities are what gives you taste. Stop wasting time and energy trying to be someone you are not. Accept yourself and embrace those little things that make you … you.
Learn how to get a compliment
