10 Shades of Blue

Everyone experiences an unhappy mood on occasion, but there is a big difference between experiencing a temporary bout of unhappiness and living a habitually unhappy life. That’s what chronically unhappy people do.  And although many of these people are afraid to admit it, a vast majority of their unhappiness stems from their own beliefs and behaviours. Certain behaviours signal that negative emotions are taking a toll on you. Image Source: Getty Images



You Worry a Lot

If you feel anxious because you constantly feel like you’re missing out on something happening somewhere else, you’re not alone.  We all feel this way sometimes – like the grass is greener somewhere else at this very moment.   The best in life isn’t somewhere else; it’s right where you are, at this moment.   Image Source: Getty Images



You Dread Losing Control

Life is often unpredictable.  Some of the great moments in your life won’t necessarily be the things you do; they’ll be things that happen to you. That doesn’t mean you can’t take action to affect the outcome of your life.  You have to take action, and you will. Image Source: Getty Images



You Hold Grudges

You will never find peace until you learn to finally let go of the hatred and hurt that lives in your heart.  Life is far too short to be spent in nursing bitterness and registering wrongs. Image Source: Getty Images



My Way or the Highway

Remember that the way you’ve always done it isn’t the only way.  Remember “If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him.” Image Source: Getty Images



You Struggle with Self-respect

Accept who you are completely, the good and the bad, and make changes in your life as you see fit – not because you think anyone else wants you to be different, but because you know it’s the right thing to do, for you. Image Source: Getty Images



You See the Glass Half-empty

“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be” said Abraham Lincoln and how true. If you’re a pessimistic person, you will notice all of the bad in your life. Your perception becomes your reality. Instead, choose to focus on the best in people, the brighter moments, and the beauty and blessings surrounding you. Image Source: Getty Images



I am so Lonely; I Have Nobody for My Own

If you find yourself alone and depressed on a Saturday night, make an effort to change it. Finding friendships will certainly improve your enthusiasm for what each day brings. Image Source: Getty Images



You Believe Money CAN Buy Happiness

You may be poor and sad because the only thing you have is money. If you live by your values, you will find more fulfilment than materialism could ever bring. Image Source: Getty Images



You Have Unhappy Friends

If your friends are constant sources of negativity in your life, it may be time to find more positive people. “When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.” Image Source: Getty Images



You are Purposeless in Life

Find your passion and purpose and pursue them, despite the fact that it may turn the mundane inside out and terrify you. Discovering your part in the story is one of the best pieces in life’s adventure! Image Source: Getty Images
