“How to be Miserable”
To save you the time, I’ll share an article I saw recently which is guaranteed to produce miserable results!
- Think only about yourself;
- Talk only about yourself;
- Use “I” as often as possible;
- Expect to be appreciated;
- Be suspicious;
- Be jealous;
- Be envious;
- Be sensitive to slights;
- Never forgive a criticism;
- Trust nobody but yourself;
- Insist on consideration and respect;
- Never forget a service you have given to others;
- Do as little as possible for others.
If, on the other hand, you look for meaning in life, there is another way: move beyond your own issues and concerns to reach out to others. You will experience a change of perspective away from being miserable. You will discover that your life now has room for deeper joy and fulfillment to take up residence.
The choice really is ours.
