My title says it all. If you keep on thinking and be hard on yourself always you'll LESS enjoy life. Life is not measured on how good you are but also on what kind of a person you are being mold. The developements you had and so you're achievements. Yet the most of all the WHO you had become after you surpass the trials in life with flying colors!

Hey there. Indeed life is incredibly short and precious to constantly be thinking about what others think of you. I think people put way too much importance on the material things that they have acquired on their journey through life. This fasination for the material is something I have never understood. Surely the experiences on that journey are the most important. No one is perfect and you will never please everyone. The most important thing is to make sure you make yourself happy and proud. We are make mistakes and some decisions dont always turn out to be the best ones. But mistakes are not made as long as we learn from every life experience, good or bad.

YES! No one is perfect and we can't please everyone. (I like the way you state it..) it's very striking. Thanks for sharing. We have the same stand. And with these thoughts I guess we'll made a good place to live. Cheers!

Sometimes, I keep myself always grounded. Thinking of what might happen, thinking of what other might say. I have many what ifs. I think deeply on so many things that sometimes I feel that it is crippling me. I do know that it is not right that is why I have made a conscious effort to change it. I know that the more I become relax with myself the better I feel and the better I will treat other people.

You're right with it. You speak the same way with me. It's something that I am working with myself too. Now i feel so tired. Tired of being grounded and finally I had realized why should I kept thinking of other people wherein they are one of the hindrance to my happiness.

Hey, Yes that is very true! As soon as I read this, I thought about my friends that always buy a particular brand of shoes. Whenever they see someone wear those shoes they always think that person is 'cool' or whatever. It doesn't matter what clothes you wear, or food you eat, what matters is WHO you are as a person. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I agree with you. I don't think we should always think about what is right or the what ifs. Sometimes, you should do something for yourself, even though it might not always be the right thing to do. We do need to enjoy life, to a certain extent. Life is too short to always do the right thing and worry about the what ifs and such.

When the money you have couldn't afford to pay your life, you have to think about how to earn more money. When the money I have which could afford my usual life, I will stop thinking the business and enjoy my life. I intend to use money to earn more money, I hate work for others.

That is so true....striving to be perfect all the time takes time away from you getting to see the beauty in life....and there truly are few things in life that are perfect! So if you back off.....you'll probably even shine more!
