Ever wondered how to be content and happy without letting others affect you? How is it possible? Is it at all possible? This article answers these questions.
Let others’ presence not bother you. You do your stuff all by yourself whatever you can. If you need co-ordination or help, ask for it. In break time, have fun and cut jokes and be happy. When you return to your work, do it coolly and be happy. You will cover many milestones this way. Stay in slow and steady mode – after all, you are the person who will win at it. Perseverance and determination always count.
Let others’ words not sting at you. Make it go through one ear and out through the other ear. You may not allow what others say hurt you. Be firm and strong and speak boldly. Everything will work out and you do not have to be a people pleaser.
Let how others behave not bother you. You cannot expect everyone to be perfect and up to your standard. Nevertheless talk normally and accept them but don’t let them hamper your thoughts or work.
Let how other people dress not bother you. If there is a dress code at work and someone violates it, they will have to pay for it. So you don’t bother and sweat. If you don’t like the way someone is dressed at a party or reunion, don’t bother to say anything. Just keep your distance and mix with the people you are comfortable with and stay contented.
It’s not your job to fix anyone. Let others do what they like, talk, behave or wear anything they like. You don’t bother about these things unless it’s your own family and would like to suggest something more rational or positive.
Learn to be content with your stuff in your place at work or home. Don’t let anybody affect your peace of mind. You may sit in a garden for sometime or spend your time at a home library. Time will pass peacefully. If you crave for someone’s company, let him or her know that and let them spend time with you for the time being and be content and happy.
Summing up, please don’t let others’ odd presence or behavior affect you. You may be in for a shock or surprise but it is totally their business. Control yourself and stay cool and at peace with yourself. That way you don’t lose your temper or your peace of mind. Instead, tranquility surrounds you in your environment and you are left with your thoughts and work to enjoy and be content.
