Oftentimes, we settle for what we think is right, acceptable and safe. We are so dominated by the idea of staying because it feels scary to move. Because it feels frightening to face a whole new environment without the people, the things, or the places we’ve been so used to.
We are so terrified by the idea of moving on, because we feel like we just can’t move on and leave things behind. We sacrifice our own being, our own happiness. We choose to compromise all these because we choose to stay, when we should really be moving on, moving forward.
If you’re unhappy, MOVE. Because if you’re meant to stay in one place, you should have roots, instead of feet.
If you are not happy with your job – QUIT. If your job is draining you mentally, physically, or emotionally, or if you feel like you don’t have room for growing and learning new things – then quit and go on to find another one that will make you happy. You are not too old to do so. Your happiness is more important than staying in a place where you feel miserable just because you think of the bills you have to pay.
If you are not happy being around your friends – LEAVE. If you feel like they are not influencing you positively and are only bringing you down and suck your energy – leave. You have a responsibility to do so and protect yourself from toxic influences around you. Keep moving forward and surround yourself with people who vibrate on the same frequency as you. You are not meant for mediocre things or mediocre people.
If you are not happy with your relationship – END IT. Your partner is not the last person on Earth with whom you can have a romantic relationship. A relationship is so much more than dinner dates, sweet texts, kisses and hugs. A true relationship is a relationship that changes you from the core and makes you grow to be the best version of yourself. If your partner is making you feel sad and brings toxicity and heartache into your life, then it’s time to move on and end the relationship for good.
If you are not happy living in your city – MOVE. Yes, familiarity and comfort are good, but they are not that good. If you are unwilling to move to another city just because you fear of the unknown, then maybe you should think again and consider taking a risk. Because all the great things in life happen outside of your comfort zone. Be daring to go and experience life in a new city and start fresh. Because, a true home is where you are happy, not where you are safe.
Finally, if you are not happy with how you view your life – CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE. Stop stressing over things you cannot change. You can only change yourself and how you see things. Life is beautiful if you see it as such. It is as simple and as complicated as that.
If you’re unhappy where you are right now, move. It’s as simple as that, I don’t know why we make everything so complicated. Why we spend so much of our time and energy scrutinizing everything, when the only thing we should really be thinking about is our own happiness.
Thus, instead of dreading and over-examining every decision you need to make in your life, trust your guts. Sometimes, taking risks and clinging to perplexity is a good thing. You don’t always have to weigh the pros and cons of things, sometimes there is only one thing that really, truly matters and that is; your happiness, your passion for this life and your hunger for a contented heart. You don’t have to be sure of where you’re going or what the next step is; sometimes all you have to do is take the first step and that is to MOVE.
