Your Personal Life Is Your Business: If You Want To Be Happy, Keep It Private

Your Personal Life Is Your Business: Keep It Private If You Want To Be Happy

Happiness is not something distant. It is not as complicated and unattainable as most people make it to be. In fact, it is one of the most accessible things in life. It is always there within our reach. The problem is, not all of the people out there know of this. Not all of them are aware that finding their happiness depends only on them. No one else.

If you ask me, the most important thing you can do in life in order to find happiness is to be humble. Yes, it’s that simple.

When you stop oversharing tiny bits of your life and stop bragging to be others about how much you have, you’ll notice a big change in your life. You’ll suddenly start to feel things a bit differently. You will stop living your life for others. You will stop giving a damn what others think about you and the main focus will be your personal life. Nothing more. You will no longer let people get in and out of your life so easily. You’ll be very careful about who you let inside your world and who you share your life with. You’ll be very careful about who you give your heart to and who you tell your dreams to.

Put simply, you will no longer live your life for others, but for yourself.

What I am trying to say is that, if you want to find happiness, the first thing you should do is realize that sharing your entire life with everyone out there doesn’t do you any good. It doesn’t add up to your happiness. It simply lets other people have insight into every single part of your life. It allows them to enter your world just like that and sometimes even take control over everything and ultimately your life as well…

I know it sounds strange to say that, but at the same time, it doesn’t. There is so much toxicity there, so many people that would literally do even the most unimaginable things to have your life that this shouldn’t come as a surprise. The world we live in is cruel. It is cruel because the people in it are ruthless, greedy, and envious.

So, why give them these people the pleasure to control our lives? Why give them the key to our hearts? Why not keep ourselves to ourselves?  Why not enjoy everything that life faces on our own before deciding to share that with someone else?

Remember. Your personal life is and will always be your own business. It is your right to choose what you do with it and how you use it, that is true. But it is also my right and my duty as someone who had already made the mistake of sharing too much with too many people to let you know how I feel about you and warn you.

Life is there to be enjoyed and felt. Experienced on our own. In our own time and our own pace. Nurture your values, create the world of your dreams, do whatever you feel like doing, but be very careful about who you share all of this with.

 Have more than you show. Speak less than you know.
