Change your behavior to learn to enjoy life. Let us find out more,
1. Compare yourself to others
A happy person does not care what and how others are doing and what they have achieved. He knows he’s going his own way. Comparison, competition with others doesn’t make sense. Moreover, one can judge someone’s life only by the information that the person himself provides. The reality can be very different from Instagram photos. And pictures of someone else’s beautiful life should not confuse and interfere with doing what you think is right.

2. Focus on someone else’s opinion
Trying to please everyone is an initially failed strategy. Each person will have their own opinion on how you should live, but no one knows you well enough to decide what to do. Therefore, you should stop thinking about what others are saying about you.
Happy people do what they themselves consider important and necessary.
3. Thinking bad things in advance
A little bit of optimism hasn’t stopped anyone yet. The mood for a negative result often forces you to quit the business at the very beginning, because all the same, nothing will come of it. Pessimistic attitudes prevent you from opening start-ups, starting a relationship, and simply not allowing you to enjoy life because it seems that as soon as you feel happy, everything will immediately become bad.
4. Condemn people for the “wrong” life
It would never occur to a happy person to think that someone is living wrong. He is sure that those around them know what they need and do not impose their ideas on the norm.
5. Feel sorry for yourself
Bad things happen to good people too. But a happy person does not waste time feeling sorry for himself. He makes an effort to influence what is happening.
6. Worry about a situation that you cannot control
It is not always possible to influence events, even if they affect you directly. A happy person lets go of a situation that they have no control over.
Experiences, mental agony will only wear you out, but will not lead to anything good.
7. Shifting responsibility for your happiness
Happiness is a choice, and there is no need to blame yourself for not experiencing it. Perhaps you are waiting for certain conditions, a person nearby, a season to allow yourself to rejoice. But nothing will change until you appreciate what you have and allow yourself to be happy now.
8. Be afraid of being alone
A happy person is not afraid to be left alone with his thoughts, and he does not need to create information noise around himself, spending time with a company that is not particularly interesting to him. He appreciates the people who make his life better, but he’d rather be alone than with just anyone.
9. Dragging along the load of the past
Being happy is hindered by being too obsessed with both negative and positive events from the past. Sad experience makes it difficult to decide on discoveries in the present. And a strong nostalgia for happy times does not allow rejoice because it will not be like before.

10. Be afraid of change
Changes do not necessarily lead to better, but without them, it is impossible to develop. Happy people face change without fear. They are happy to receive new opportunities and are optimistic about this.
