sad woman, why am I so unhappy

Do you wake up in a lousy mood nearly every day and ask yourself, “Why am I so unhappy?”

Before you even get out of bed, you feel stressed and negative. The world simply does not look like a happy place in your mind.

Like most of us, you may have some legitimately difficult things going on in your life.

Maybe you’re worried about money, and that is undoubtedly stressful. Or you might have problems in one of your relationships or an issue at work.

Many people wake up with this feeling the moment they open their eyes. Every morning begins with anxiety, dissatisfaction, and negativity.

They can’t understand why things are so bad, why nothing is fun and enjoyable, and why they are so dissatisfied with life.

In order to do that, you have to know your whole self. And that means facing personal attributes you’d rather not think about.

Finding yourself generally starts at the bottom and often in the less socially acceptable parts of your personality. No one builds a house by starting on the roof.

There’s an order to these things for a reason.

Life Lessons

Do you ever look back on your life and think, “Gosh, I wish I’d learned that lesson a long time ago?”

You think you have a handle on how life works only to discover after a few failed relationships, difficult challenges, and misguided assumptions that you’ve been missing something valuable.

As a result, much of life is wasted on worry, regret, pain, and heartache. Of course, some of this is inevitable and necessary.

But we end up spending too much time sweating over things unnecessarily instead of focusing on what is important in life.
