5 Myths About Contentment
Often feel like something might be missing in life but can’t quite ever seem to put it right? In the latest issue of Psychologies magazine, psychologist and author Linda Blair discusses the five myths that we often succumb to relating to our own personal contentment - the ways that we should adjust our mindset accordingly.
Myth 1: 'People should accept me just as I am'
What we should really think: ‘No man is an island. It will be well worth my while to put care and effort into my relationships’
Myth 2: ‘My life should make sense now’
What we should really think: ‘My life doesn’t have to make sense right now’
Myth 3: 'My life should be busy; doing nothing is lazy'
What we should really think: 'I'll try and live fully in the moment as often as I can’
Myth 4: 'I must look perfect and stay that way'
What we should really think: 'Perfection is actually rather boring. Each stage of life has value'
Myth 5: 'I'll be happy when I've got a promotion'
What we should really think: 'My greatest fulfilment will come while I’m engaged in activities that are important and enjoyable to me and that will challenge me'
