I Was Unhappy With Myself

unhappy with myself

A few months ago, I noticed I was really unhappy with myself. Like totally unhappy with everything.
Then I asked myself, why am I unhappy? What’s the reason for me being unhappy?

As I asked myself and searched deep within myself, I realize I had no reason to be unhappy. I have everything I need to be happy. I have food on my table, a warm bed to sleep on. Money to take care of my every need. A job I love and everything.

I realized I was looking out there searching for happiness, instead of looking in here for it (in me). Happiness can’t be found out there. You find it, by learning every bit to know about yourself. Your strengths, your weaknesses, everything about you. And then accepting you for who you are.

And here’s one more ingredient for happiness.

Find a purpose for yourself.

When you have nothing to look forward to, you can never be happy. You have to find a purpose, something you can accomplish by yourself.

For me, it is my hustle. I’m looking to build and grow further than where I am right now. I know what to do, I know how to do it. All I have to do, is to put in the work.

That’s it. That’s my purpose right now. I wake up in the morning, do 30 push ups, 100 jump ropes. I brush my teeth and I take my bath.

Next thing is my hustle. Breakfast comes later in the morning for me.

My hustle gives me happiness. Every progress I make gives me a sense of accomplishment and drives me further to do more.

And the beautiful thing about this purpose and this life I’m building is that I’ll never get to the greatest height possible. I’ll only keep getting better and fulfilling the promises I made to my younger self.

Every day I promise my future self progress, improvements and success. And I work my azz off every day, to make sure my future self is proud of what I did in the past.

There is no ceiling to stop my ascent. There’ll always be space to grow, space to improve, and become a better version of myself, every day.
