According to me…..

How to be Unhappy

* Make little things bother you.   Don’t just let them, MAKE them.

* Lose your perspective on things and keep it lost: don’t put first things first.

* Get yourself a good worry, one about which you cannot do anything.

* Be a perfectionist, which means not that you work hard to do your best, but that you condemn yourself and others for not achieving perfection.

* Be right. Be always right. Be the only one who is always right, and be rigid in your rightness.

* Don’t trust or believe people, or accept them at anything but their worst and weakest.

* Be suspicious. Insist that others always have hidden motives.

* Always compare yourself unfavorably to others. This guarantees instant misery.

* Take personally everything that happens to you.

* Don’t give yourself whole-heartily to anyone or anything.

    • it’s good for a giggle, isn’t it? 🙂 But sadly, true!!!
      Some folks are addicted to drama, having been brought up in an environment where this is the norm..then they find a good stable life and it’s *boring* to them… they crave the adrenalin flow. But there is hope…one can learn. 🙂

      And I agree… good to see both sides of the equation so that we may appreciate the good side of it… if not for rain, there would be no rainbows, right? Right. lol

      Have a truly wonderful day both of you, I wish you enough.

  2. These are sure fire ways to unhappiness, I do hope the author is happy lol.

    Life is tricky and it’s so easy to slip into some of these bad habits, obviously I would never myself lol.

    We mustn’t forget that some people are never happy unless they’re unhappy and moaning about something; this concept is strange to the majority of us, but some people love it. One man’s poison and all that…

    Respect and Peace

    • I am happy. lol
      Obviously you wouldn’t. lol Not you… 🙂 Me neither, now that you bring it up… heh.
      It’s funny – but most people who are miserable are the ones putting others down so that they feel better about themselves. I don’t think they even realize they are doing it..they just sink down into it. And it’s very contagious if you don’t pay attention it can trap you, too!!

      Respect and Peace Back Atcha!!! 🙂

  3. Susan, I think you found this gem… I remember first reading it and giggling…. it hit me the same way now. lol
