I used to be a high flyer during my studying years.
But I don’t think I am living a successful life right now.
My ex-bf cheated on me, and my current one has wandering eyes. I got bullied at work and had a panic attack and subsequent anxiety attacks.
I don’t know where I got wrong. Maybe, my personality or my social skills are not on par. Or I am making bad life decisions or just have really bad luck. I now have a stable career in a new company, but my self-esteem gets very low due to recent events.
Any advice for me to have a happier life again?
Here are what netizens think:
- Think of this way. Life is a journey. These lessons will make you a better person and help you to make better choices in the future. Hopefully you learnt something from each setback instead of repeating it again and again. Do realise that being good at studies is not everything. Having someone is not everything too. I hope you won’t settle with a guy when he has traits that you cannot accept. Everytime you think about something bad and wish you could change, list down 5 things that you are grateful for.
- There are no fixed “Attributes” to define successful. Although in the current context, having good relationships with parents, married happily, have a good career making decent money, accompany by group of good friends, colleagues, etc seems to be the barometer.
- Rid yourself of anything that is toxic and does you more harm than good. You are your own hero. Jia you
