10 Things You Should Stop Caring About

It’s time to care less. Yep, that’s right. Sometimes we take the world on our shoulders, and instead of making the world a better place, all we end up doing is creating more stress for ourselves. Here are simple tips to ease that heavy mental load and feel more carefree.
1. Expectations. Live your life how you want, not how your parents want, and especially not how society expects you to.
"The human default position tends to err on the side of lack rather than abundance, which is not conducive to feeling carefree."
2. Being right. Being wrong gives you a chance to learn something new.
3. Fixing others. You will end up wasting time that could be spent bettering your own self.
4. Being comfortable. It’s when you challenge yourself and exit your comfort zone that you grow.
5. Being bored. You don’t need to fill your every waking moment with entertainment. It’s okay to occasionally put down the phone and stare off into space.
10 Things You Should Stop Caring About
6. Missing out on things. This is where Facebook and social media is horrible. Don’t worry so much about what everyone else is doing. Focus on yourself and your own happiness.
7. What others think of you. Are you happy? Good, because that is all that matters.
8. Awkward silences. Embrace them.
9. Mistakes. Everyone makes them, and once they’ve happened, there is nothing you can do about it. 
"Regret is a part of life. The past cannot be undone, so it pays to look at what you have done in life philosophically. Did you learn something from it?"
10. Rejection. Live a life of oh wells rather than what ifs. Many of us are so afraid of rejection that we stay in our comfort zones and never risk real intimacy. Wear your heart on your sleeve and risk being vulnerable. The more you hide out of fear, the greater the fear will grow. Show yourself that you can express your feelings and live with the consequences. You will conquer the fear of rejection in this way and feel more carefree. Even if the outcome is not as expected, you will soon realize that it wasn’t as bad as you anticipated and that you can deal with it. Be a little more thick skinned, be brave and see life as an adventure.
We all worry unnecessarily and create personal misery for ourselves. Remember the above ten points, as they are definitely items you can immediately remove from your problem list. Hopefully, you’ll feel a little lighter and a little more carefree too!
