10 Psychological Tips That’ll Help You Get Your Life Together

-via BrightSide Youtube-


1/ If you can figure out why your parents did this or that, you’ll be able to forgive them and take a huge step towards accepting yourself just as you are.

2/ When it comes to beating yourself up for past mistakes, don’t forget that you made that decision because you felt that it was right for you at that time in your life.

3/ If you’ve been hurt by someone, tell them how you feel, but choose your words wisely. Instead of saying, “You betrayed me!”, a much better way to open a dialogue is to say, “I feel betrayed.”

4/ Try to have desires and goals that are your own and not somebody else’s. When we try to live another person’s life, we destroy our own.

5/ You can change your life if you just step out of your comfort zone and start doing things you’d never imagine yourself doing.

6/ You don’t have to be nice and accommodating for everybody and give up your own desires and expectations. It’s perfectly okay to say “no”.

7/ Don’t wait for the right moment, take steps to make your life better every single day.

8/ Each stressful situation pulls you out of your comfort zone. And with it, you’ve gained new experience that will help you learn your lesson so that you never repeat the same mistakes again.

9/ Do everything that’s in your power, and then let the situation work itself out. It’s pointless to stress over something you can’t change and have no control over.

10/ Remember you’re the person you spend your whole life with. No matter how much everyone else praises you, if you don’t like yourself, you’ll still be miserable.

Mistakes Michael Makes

17 December 2013

Michael gets very nervous whenever he takes an exam. Michael does not read questions slowly or twice. Michael forgets to number every exercise. This guy leaves sentences unfinished. Michael´s handwriting is not clear or nice.

Yes, Michael never highlights the circumstance of an incomplete activity by writing ON THE OTHER SHEET or SEE NEXT PAGE, for example. This student seems to be a stranger in a foreign country

Michael, man, you do not normally listen to the teacher´s instructions. Remember you did not pay attention to his stories or advice. You are one of those tippex freak users in exam sheets. You never tried to participate, understand or study for hours.

Michael, do you feel a rare feeling towards teachers? You do not know how to write the seven days of the week. Despite that, you look happy when you write Thuesday* instead of Thursday. You ignore the difference between cardinal and ordinal numbers. Oh, kid, you are unable to say 12th in your own language.

You still haven´t entered moodle in spite of the fact that your teacher keeps saying fantastic things about it.

Michael, Michael you write Wensday*, you write fiveteen*. Michael you forget the subject in sentences. You do not learn vocabulary by heart, you do not practise English language. You look like a dictionary hater, you blame teachers for everything. You arrive late and do not do the homework.

 *[Thursday / Wednesday / fifteen]
