There are a number of things you can to do make sure you’re living your best life. With that in mind, Thought Catalog has compiled a list of 20 things you should stop doing for a happier life. Here are 10 of them! 


  • Stop making your happiness depend on other people. Once you are at peace with yourself, the rest will come.
  • Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. Smile and let everybody know that today you are stronger than you were yesterday.
  • Stop holding onto the past. You can't start a new chapter of your life while you're rereading the previous chapter.
  • Stop doubting yourself. Banish uncertainty and doubt from your soul.
  • Stop criticizing yourself for your past mistakes. Mistakes help us to find right people and make right choices.
  • Stop rushing into relationships for the wrong reasons. There is no need to hurry with the choice.
  • Stop holding a grudge against someone. You will end up damaging yourself more than those who you hate. 
  • Stop trying to be everything for everyone. It’s impossible; you are just going to burn yourself out. 
  • Stop blaming other people for your problems. When you blame others for what happens to you, you deny the responsibility. 
  • Stop worrying too much. Ask yourself: “Will it still be important in one year? Two years? Five years?” If the answer is “no,” there is no need to worry at all.
