Breakups are a part of life that many of us would rather do without. Splitting from someone or something that isn’t right for you should be an easy task but more often than not, it’s a process filled with confusion and heavy emotions. What if you were to change your perspective on the whole thing? Leaving things that don’t do you any good is the only way to move forwards with your life and find a happier path. Still not sure if it’s time to make a clean break? It could be time to remove these things from your life.
- Technology and Social Media
Ok, ok, so giving up on technology altogether is not going to work, but there are ways that you can alter your relationship with the digital world for the better. If your social media habit is creeping into increasing parts of your day, it could be time to redefine your relationship and set out some new boundaries. Try going out into the fresh air without your phone or digital device. Getting a little distance from the online world can make it easier to tap into your inner voice and listen to what you really want. Don’t be afraid to be in the moment; your emails and texts can wait for a bit.
- Toxic Relationships
While it should go without saying that toxic relationships can only lead to bad things, so many of us get caught up in messy situations with no obvious way out. Knowing what’s good and bad for you when you’re in the thick of it can be easier said than done. If you’re not sure whether or not your relationship is creating a healthy life for you, try asking yourself about the last time in which you felt really happy. If it was before your relationship began, it could be time to make a change. Healthy partnerships are all about the give and take but if your pairing is weighing too heavily on your shoulders, it’s probably time to make a change.
- Cheap, Fast Fashion
The world in which we live moves at 100 miles an hour and in order to keep up, you might feel like you have to change your appearance every few days. While buying into seasonal trends can be a fun process, you risk wasting a lot of time and money if you take the process too far. Rather than willingly going with every new trend out there, try investing a little effort into discovering your personal style. Investing in well made, classic pieces can see you through a great deal more seasons that shopping every week. It’s all about building a collection for the future.
- Unrestrained Spending
Spending time in your social circles is a great way of improving your wellbeing but if you’re starting to flash the cash a little too much, you can start to do your bank balance some serious damage. Keeping up with your friends can lead you to spend huge chunks of your paycheck, whereas you should think about saving for the future. Try taking your spending into your own hands and writing yourself up a weekly budget. It might be hard at first, but it will make you feel a lot more in control.
- Low Self Esteem
Feelings of self doubt and low self worth are more common than you might have thought, but that doesn’t meant that you have to put up with them. Low self esteem can be a crippling side of life, preventing you from going out and doing many of the things you would like to do. While the situation might feel helpless, there is plenty that you can do in order to turn it all around. Changing your perspective starts and ends with you, so you really have to make a conscious effort to improve how you see yourself. Try going out and socializing, no matter how much it scares you. It might be hard at first but after a few tries, you can start to make a go of it.
