More often than not, life is not like the movies. There is no sudden turning point, or a sudden scenery change when all the audience understands that the protagonist has reached the breaking point. In order to become the lead in the movie about your own life that is happening right now, you need to be aware of how you feel and what are you doing, so that when the moment strikes, you could fearlessly get rid of the mess and start a new life. Here are four reasons that could push you to do just that.
You Hate Work
The Monday-dreading joke has become a little too familiar to you. Waking up every morning is like torture, and entering your office or your university instantly kills your smile and desire to get anything done. The hands of the clock become your constant companions as you look at the time when you can finally escape. If the described situation is familiar, you need to seriously sort out your priorities. Hated work rarely brings benefits to you, not to mention that it is not productive for the company either. The same goes for studying. Imagine that after you graduate you will need to apply the hated knowledge each day! So why not choose another career path and switch your major before it is too late?
You Are Not Living Now
As bizarre as it may sound, some people do not live in the present moment. For example, you could recall your grandmother, that smiles only when she looks through the photo albums of her youth. Even though living in the past, thinking that you have already achieved your dreams and everything was better before a certain time, is a critical condition, so is living in the future. Building illusions and fantasizing of a distant day is equally harmful, as you are not focusing on enjoying the present moment, and it is high time to change something right now.
You Feel Stressed Constantly
A little bit of stress in an active life is unavoidable, but if you are constantly shaking, drinking tons of coffee and your nails are all bitten, you need to reassess your life. If it is just a period that will pass, make sure to let yourself switch off after studying or work, and just relax, doing what you love. If stress slowly becomes part of your daily routine, you have bigger fish to catch, and need to change your lifestyle as quickly as possible.
You Judge Others
When you gossip about others, it is a signal that you are not quite comfortable about your life. What do you care if someone has a new lover or has gone abroad on vacation? Right, maybe because you are devoid of such pleasures. Happy people do not have time for gossip, so try to focus on what you want and spend your time trying to achieve it, instead of criticizing others. In the end, you will be the one to gain from it!
