Unhappy Forever

I came across this website with tips about productive living and such .. there was that list about ways to stay unhappy forever. Through the long contradicting list i found that i relate to many points mentioned that make my life unhappy to some extent ..

Here are some ways that have granted me unhappiness! 

  • Dwell on things that happened in the past.
  • Obsess yourself with all the things that might happen in the future.
  • Work hard, do your best and then condemn yourself for not achieving perfection.
  • Always be right.  Never let anyone else be more right than you.
  • Compare yourself unfavorably to those who you feel are more successful.
  • Don’t ask for directions and don’t ask questions.
  • Never throw anything way.  Even if you don’t use it, hold onto it.
  • Say “yes” to everyone.  Fill all your time with commitments.
  • Multitask, multitask, multitask!  Do everything at once.
  • Hang out with people who complain about everything.
  • Focus on what you don’t want to happen.
  • Fear the things you don’t fully understand.
  • Always seek external validation before you consider yourself good enough.
  • Never check-up on your health.
  • Never tell anyone how you feel or what you’re thinking.
  • Make sure everything you do impresses someone else.
  • Always put your own needs on the back burner.
  • Believe that, no matter what, you are entitled to things.
  • Just keep going and going and going.  And never ever stop.
