The 10 habits of unhappy people

Here are 10 habits that unhappy people have in common.

Ceveryone lives at one time or another in a difficult situation, illness, death, financial difficulties, family conflicts, employment problems ... So many situations that can wake you up at night or fill you with stress. But while some people seem to be riding the wave, others are drowning in an ocean of doom. These unhappy people have 10 bad habits in common.

Look at the circumstances

Focusing on all the negative circumstances will not change the problem, on the other hand, it will fuel the unease in us. In the face of circumstances, the Bible reminds us of the importance of looking at divine promises.

And you turned my lamentations into joy, You untied my bag, and you surrounded me with joy, So that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. Lord my God! I will always praise you. (Psalms 30: 11-12)

Believe the lies of the enemy

The devil is the father of lies. He places dark details before our eyes and drives us to despair. Faced with his lies, 2 possibilities are available to us: listen to him, see him rejoice in our collapse and let him steal our peace, or silence him.

The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that the sheep may have life and be abundant. (Jean 10: 10)

Go over the mistakes of the past

Focusing on our past difficulties only rekindles our wounds and traps us in our emotions. Instead of looking at what is behind us, let us lift our eyes to the Lord.

Think no more about past events, And no longer consider what is old. Here I am going to do a new thing about to happen: Won't you know it? I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43: 18-19)

Accuse others

Blaming others for our misfortune prevents us from finding the real solution to our problems. We must choose to let go of this denial and live as a winner.

But in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (8 Romans: 37-39)

Deny our difficulties

Sometimes we prefer to spend all of our time doing something else entirely instead of solving our problems. We take refuge in actions that steal our time. The best example is probably our time spent on social media. Let's relearn how to focus on the essentials.

The Lord answered her: Martha, Martha, you are worried and you are agitated for many things. Only one thing is needed. Mary chose the good part, which will not be taken from her. (Luke 10: 41-42)

Envy others

We will always find people who will have more than us, more money, more success, more friends, more success… But there is no point in our envying their situation. The Bible teaches us to rejoice and be content with what we have.

It is not in view of my needs that I say this, because I have learned to be happy with the state in which I find myself. I know how to live in humiliation, and I know how to live in abundance. In everything and everywhere I have learned to be full and to be hungry, to be in abundance and to be in famine. I can do everything through him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4: 11-13)

Have a selfish ambition

Being focused on yourself rather than on others, wanting to be in the center of everything is a trap. Instead, let's dedicate ourselves to God.

Incline my heart to your precepts, and not to gain! (Psalms 119: 36)

Criticize others

The fact of judging others and constantly pointing out their faults, their mistakes is the revealer of an unhappy soul. Let's learn how to turn our negative words into positive words.

He who watches over his mouth keeps his soul; He who opens big lips runs to his doom. (13 Proverbs: 3)

Neglecting a healthy life

It might not sound like much, but studies show that good health increases happiness. Eating healthy, playing sports and having a balanced rhythm of life are some of the good habits to adopt in order to be happy.

Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have received from God, and that you are not your own? For you were redeemed at a great price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which belong to God. (1 Corinthians 6: 19-20)

Be sorry for himself

Focusing on what we lack only increases our burden. Let us not focus on obstacles but recognize the power of God in our lives.

Jehovah said unto him, Who hath made a man's mouth, and maketh deaf, or deaf, or seeing or blind, is not I Jehovah? Go therefore, I will be with your mouth, and I will teach you what you have to say. (Exodus 4: 11-12)
