We all have bad days, but if you can relate to most of these signs, you need to wake up and take action. Here are 12 signs you’re settling for less in life:
1) You play it safe
You often try convince yourself that you should be grateful for ‘okay’ even though you’re not happy. You’re afraid to take risks or try new things.
2) You always say ‘someday’
You have an idea of what would make you happy in life but you procrastinate a lot and tend to put things on hold. You intentionally make a lot of excuses to avoid taking any action.
3) You play the blame game
Instead of doing something about your life, you focus on blaming yourself, your past mistakes, and other people for ending up where you are now.
4) You wait for things to happen
You don’t make things happen. You only get out of your comfort zone and take risks when you don’t have any other choice.
5) You believe you can’t without even trying
You lack confidence and decline new opportunities because you think you’re not good enough. You haven’t updated your resume in years because you think no one would hire you.
6) You give up too easily
You give up at the first sign of struggle. You can’t handle challenges and only want to do things that are easy.
7) You complain a lot
You spend more time complaining about your life than being grateful for what you have. You whine about work, your love life, family, and everything in between.
8) You hold a lot of anger
You resent yourself for all the mistakes you made in the past. You also feel anger towards other people who did you wrong.
9) You struggle to wake up in the morning
You not only dread to go to work, but you can’t even bring yourself out of bed unless you have something exciting to look forward to.
10) You constantly need to escape reality
Watching TV series for hours. Drinking excessively. Depending on holiday trips to keep you sane. You always feel like you need to escape and often imagine living a different life.
11) You think a lot but do very little
Your mind is always full of ideas, thoughts, and worries yet you hardly take any action. You spend most of your time thinking and feeling overwhelmed.
12) You envy other people
You compare yourself to others and envy them for getting what they want in life. You are jealous that people seem to have everything together and despise yourself even more because you don’t.
