Life can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to get caught up in the daily stresses. But it’s important to remember that many of the things we worry about today won’t even matter in a decade. From material possessions to trivial arguments, here are 16 things that you won’t care about in 10 years time:
Spending Time with The Wrong People
We all have that friend from high school or college who we see out of obligation. Perhaps an ex-colleague with whom you have nothing in common. It’s OK to cut ties with people who no longer serve you. Consider what they add to your life and whether you enjoy spending time with them.
Fear of Failure
Embrace failure as a stepping stone to success, taking calculated risks, and learning from setbacks to propel yourself forward.
Not Saying No
Many of us are people pleasers and find it difficult to say no. Whether at work or with a close friend, constantly agreeing to do things you don’t want to do is not good for your mental health, nor will it benefit you in ten years.
What Other People Think
We tend to see ourselves reflected in the opinions of others, but what would happen if you simply stopped caring about what other people think? Imagine the freedom! You are accountable to one person only, and that’s you. What car you drive, the job you have, or what clothes you wear is no one else’s business.
If you have great ideas but are always scared of how others may react if you ‘put yourself out there,’ welcome to the club. Most of us fail to follow through with ideas because we simply worry about looking silly. But imagine starting that YouTube channel.
How Many Likes You Got
We live in a day and age where likes and follows seem to matter more than ever. It’s very easy to lead a pretend life online, sharing only the good stuff, the fantastic holidays, and the lovely family photos.
How often have we heard rich people tell us that “money doesn’t make you happy?” Easy for them to say right? But it is, in fact, true. Material possessions may fill a void for a week or a month, but you’ll soon discover that the real void cannot be filled with things.
Dwelling on Past Mistakes
Learn from the past, but release the burden of regret, focusing instead on personal growth and embracing new opportunities.
How Old You Are
Here’s the thing. Ten years will pass, regardless of what you do. So you can grasp the opportunity and see where it may lead you or be in the same spot in ten years. Think of it like this. You’re 45 but want to change careers. However, you’re worried you’re too old, and starting over seems too big of a risk.
The world is filled with traps, senses, and algorithms to provide instant gratification. Netflix is available at our fingertips, and world news is just a click away. If you want to make serious changes in your life, forego instant gratification. Work on yourself, go to the gym and start that business.
OK, so you got drunk at the party or said something foolish. We’ve all been there. But most often, other people don’t care, and they’ll have forgotten about your mishap almost immediately. Do you want to know why? Because people are too busy living their own lives.
It’s easy to get involved in petty arguments and to hold a grudge. But how does it serve you? Holding on to resentment will only negatively impact your life moving forward.
Holding on To Toxic Relationships
Let go of relationships that no longer serve your growth, surrounding yourself with positive influences and nurturing connections.
Constantly Trying to Please Others
Prioritize your own needs and well-being, setting healthy boundaries and finding a balance between self-care and supporting others.
Comparison to Others
Recognize that everyone’s journey is unique, celebrating your own progress and embracing individuality instead of comparing yourself to others.
Sweating the Small Stuff
Gain perspective and develop a resilient mindset, letting go of unnecessary stressors and directing your energy towards what truly matters.
