Do you feel like your life is ripe for upheaval? Like things aren’t quite right the way they are?
If so, you’re not alone. So many people are reevaluating their lives right now. And it’s probably because they woke up one day and noticed any of these six signs.
Here are 6 signs you need to reevaluate your own life, stat.
You’re always complaining
If you find yourself complaining every day, there’s a problem. It might be a problem with your attitude or situation, but either way, it needs to be resolved. The dangers of negative thinking are great and powerful.
Take stock of the things you talk about and whether you talk favorably or not. And if you’re having trouble figuring it out, ask someone close to you who will answer honestly. Someone you trust will likely tell you if you’ve been complaining a lot. Even if that’s typical for you, it’s time for a change. The truth is that you CAN enjoy your life, but you may need a few adjustments to get there.
You’re always in the same predicament
If your problems seem to run on repeat, it’s time to admit that there’s one common denominator (you). Not to be harsh, but if you keep having the same problems, there’s a good chance you are playing a role in starting those problems. Figure out what you might be doing wrong and try to make some changes. It may take a little trial and error, but at least you’re stepping in the right direction.
Your problems are someone else’s fault
There’s no better sign that you need to reevaluate your life than blaming everyone else for your problems. We all know someone who believes they’re cursed with “bad luck” and can do nothing to turn their lives around. And you know what? If you believe that, it’s going to be true in your life.
You’re living beyond your means
If you’re in debt beyond school loans or a mortgage, it’s time to reevaluate your life choices. Again, this isn’t meant to be harsh. Most Americans are in debt, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. Do what you can to bring your net worth into positive numbers and you’ll feel a lot better about your place in life.
You still gossip
Most high school kids are guilty of gossiping, but well-adjusted adults grow out of that toxic behavioral pattern. When you gossip about other people, it says a lot more about your own insecurities than it does about the person. Gossiping is a lot like bullying except it takes place behind the person’s back.
Stress is running rampant in our society, especially since the COVID pandemic began. But self-medicating with drugs or alcohol isn’t the answer. If you think you’re developing a problem, don’t let fears of treatment or stigma get in your way. It’s time to turn this around before it’s too late.
If you identify with one or even six of these signs you need to reevaluate your life, don’t worry. No one is perfect, but we can all strive to be better. Make the necessary changes to turn your life around and you’ll be much happier in the end.
