Trying to please everyone doesn’t allow you to be yourself and you end up being unhappy suppressing your true feelings and thoughts. This is the reason why it’s so important to understand that you don’t have to say ‘yes’ or ‘I’m sorry’ if you don’t truly mean it.

3. Let go of Anger

Being angry and resentful hasn’t helped anyone become happy and only leads to depression and despair. Let go of these negative feelings and it’s guaranteed you will feel a lot better about yourself and the people around you.

5. Let go of your Pride

Unless you let go your pride you won’t be able to forgive or ever truly connect with other people. Your ego will always be a barrier to finding happiness and you will feel that nothing is enough to fill up the void.
