Give Yourself TIME

  • You can give someone the tools to heal, but all that does is start the healing.
  • The process of healing will take time, regardless of how much you try to rush it.
  • But in that is a bit of hope, too; the assurance in knowing something as simple as time can drastically change the course of your life.

MORE IDEAS FROM 6 Lessons on Happiness I Learned By Going Through My Darkest Times

Just be happy
  • The pursuit of happiness is a fallacy. You can be happy right now, at this moment.
  • There’s no end destination where you’ll finally catch up to the happiness train and ride it into the eternal bliss sunset.

Society puts so much pressure on people being happy:

  • Choose a job that brings you joy but also a partner that does the same.
  • Workout because your cortisol levels will decrease
  • have plenty of sex so your serotonin increases.
  • Have hobbies you love and friends you love more.
  • Because all of this combined will ensure your happiness.

When you focus your attention too much on anything, you’re bound to smother it. Happiness shouldn’t be a part-time job but, rather, a byproduct of just having fun with life.

It is always me
  • I need to check-in with myself to make sure I’m not slipping back into my disordered eating way.
  • I have to monitor whether I’m feeling like myself and, if not, I need to be the one to do something about it.
  • If I wait around for someone else to notice, it’ll be too late.
  • I’ll be back at square one. But that’s OK.
  • I’m always going to be the person who can take care of and prioritize my needs best.

You are not sad just feeling sad for a little time
  • Emotions are tricky little bastards.
  • Their presence feels all-consuming, to the point that you believe they’re apart of you.

Multipotentiality is a strength

With the right mindset and approach, it is possible to follow several passions and do them successfully.

Leonardo Da Vinci was more than just a famous artist - he was also a mathematician, scientist, and philosopher. Da Vinci was a polymath - a person with multiple interests or passions. Other well-known polymaths were Newton, Aristotle, Galileo, Faraday, Leibniz, and more. Most successful entrepreneurs of current times, such as Elon Mush, Warren Buffet, and Jeff Bezos, are polymaths too.
