No one can control how you feel. When you allow someone to steal your joy, you are giving them power over you. It’s important to have a positive outlook despite what might be happening in your life. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips for staying happy and positive!
Assess who is really stealing your joy
Before you can protect your joy, you need to assess who is actually stealing it. Once you know who the culprits are, you can take steps to protect yourself from them. Remember, you have the power to choose who gets to be a part of your life completely!
- Assess Your Friends & Family
You might think that your friends and family member would never steal your joy, but sometimes they do. Think about it: how often are they negative or toxic? Are they always complaining when things don’t go their way? Do you feel like you have to walk on eggshells around them? If so, then these people are stealing your joy!
- Assess Your Coworkers & Bosses
Your coworkers and boss can also be culprits when it comes to stealing your joy. They can make your work life miserable by being negative, demanding, or just plain unsupportive. If you’re not happy with your job, it’s time to assess the situation and see if you need to make a change.
Keep Mindful When It Comes to Joy
One of the best ways to protect your joy is to be mindful when it comes to how you share it. Don’t give away your joy too easily and make sure that you are only sharing it with positive people who will appreciate it. Remember, not everyone deserves your joy!
Have faith that everything will work out for the best. Put your trust in God and let him guide you through life’s ups and downs! Remember, he knows what’s really important so put your full focus on Him instead of worrying about things that may or may not happen.
Protect Your Time
Another way to protect your joy is by protecting your time. Don’t let anyone else control how you spend your time. Only allow people into your day to day life who add value and happiness. Make sure that the things you do each day bring you joy!
One of the best ways to stay positive is to practice gratitude. Be thankful for the good things in your life, no matter how small they might seem. When you focus on the positives, it’s hard to let negative things bring you down.
Don’t trust anyone else for your happiness
We all need help from time to time, but when it comes down to it you are the only one who can make yourself happy. You have the power within you to create a life that brings joy and fulfillment!
Don’t get lost in negativity
If something negative happens in your life, don’t let it define who you are or bring you down. Learn from these experiences and move on with your day-to-day activities as if nothing happened at all. Don’t allow other people’s opinions of events affect how they impact you personally!
Studies show how negativity can spread like a virus, and it’s important to try and keep your mood as positive as possible so you don’t get dragged down by others.
- Negative effects of social media
Negative social media can make you feel bad about yourself and your life. Make sure to take breaks from these platforms when needed, or even block certain people who are especially toxic! If someone is being rude online, don’t engage with them at all!
- Negativity in the media
We are constantly bombarded by the news and other media outlets telling us how bad things are. Remember, this is just one side of a story – there’s always another perspective out there! Try to focus on finding positive stories instead so you don’t get dragged down into negativity.
The Comparison Trap Can Steal Your Joy
Comparison is the thief of joy. It’s easy to compare yourself to others and feel like you aren’t good enough, but that isn’t true! You are exactly where you need to be in life right now – whether it feels like it or not! Just remember: comparison kills creativity so don’t fall into this trap!
Make time for the things that matter most
If you want to protect your joy, make time for the things that matter most. This could mean going on a hike with friends or family members once in while instead of sitting at home watching TV all night long (even though it’s tempting). It might also include taking breaks from work so you can spend some quality time with loved ones.
Realize that most people don’t care what you do
One of the most freeing things you can do is to realize that most people don’t care what you do. They are too wrapped up in their own lives to worry about what you’re doing. As long as you’re not harming anyone, enjoy life the way you want!
Don’t let negative words hurt you
Don’t let anyone else’s negative words hurt you. Toxic people are going to say things that aren’t true or fair, but it’s important not to believe them. You know who you are and what you’re capable of – don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise!
Make personal boundaries and stick to them
One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to make personal boundaries and stick to them. Know what’s okay with you and don’t allow others to cross those lines! If someone does cross one, politely let them know it isn’t acceptable behavior on your part (and then back away from the situation).
Disarm Your Haters With Love and Positivity
One of the best ways to deal with haters is to disarm them with love and positivity. When they see that you aren’t going to let their negativity get to you, it will only frustrate them more. Don’t sink down to their level – stay positive and happy no matter what!
See Haters For Who They Are
Haters are going to hate no matter what you do. It’s not about them – it’s all about you! Know who your haters are and don’t let them define how you feel or act in life. Focus on the positive things around instead of focusing on people who want nothing more than negativity from others (and most likely themselves too).
Remember that you are in control of your happiness. You have the power to stay positive and happy no matter what life throws your way. Just make sure to focus on the good, practice gratitude, and don’t let anyone steal your joy!
