Quitting these things is equal to better mental peace, better productivity and a better life.

1. Quit now: Peeping into others lives

Wanna be happy? Quit peeping into others lives. By default, we humans, have high levels of curiosity. That should be used for learning new things for our own good but not for peeping into others lives. Curiosity to know what’s happening in others lives will not stop just there, it will lead to comparisons and eventually, it will awake the green-eyed monster in you. Stop peeping into others space and start working on your own progress.

2. Quit now: Judging others

Stop it, you!! We all wanted to shout this way when we know someone is judging us for absolutely no reason. Yet, we do just that with others. We should control our thoughts, yes, it is possible if we try seriously. We are no one to judge anyone. We can judge others if we’re perfect in all possible ways, but we’re not then we don’t have any right to judge.

3. Quit now: Double standards

Oh, this is annoying! This is one of the 7 things we shouldn’t be doing. When you and your friend did the same mistake and your teacher punished just you but not your friend just because he’s his favorite, how do you feel? Hurtful, no! I know. When one can perceive everyone’s doings equally there won’t be unnecessary fuss. So, quit now!

4. Quit now: Trying to please everyone

Even if you do everything that’s humanly possible you can’t impress everyone. If you have that unstoppable urge to please everyone, snap out of it ASAP. I used to be that way some time back but when I understood I need to stop being that way, I’m much relaxed now. While trying to please someone we behave the way they like, then what about the way we like. When will we get to be ourselves? Trying to please everyone is nothing but chasing rainbows. You can never pursue it.

5. Quit now: Stop saying ‘YES’ to everything even if it’s not possible for you

Stop doing this! You’re a human, not a machine to do everything when switching on. Express what you feel. Never say yes to everything all the time. People will start taking you for granted. If it’s really necessary we’ll say yes anyway. But learn to say NO for little things.

6. Quit now: Underestimating others

We need to stop underestimating others. We often underestimate someone or the other without even knowing and we must make a conscious effort to not do that ever again. How? If you think someone doesn’t know something, teach them that. And learn something you didn’t know from them. After all, no one knows everything, right! Once in a while accept and say “I didn’t know that” or “could you teach me that”, this will help stay balanced.

7. Quit now: Intimidating others to be something they’re not

This is one of the worst things anyone can go through. All of us might have intimidated someone or the other. Like pressurizing kids to study something they don’t want to, dominating others or hurting with harsh words changing a soft-hearted person into a rebel and lot more. If we have done that without knowing then it’s might be fine but after knowing what damage it could cause to others is unforgivable. Try not be this way as much as possible, cause we don’t know how long they can cope with it and how devastated they’re inside.


Before expecting all these things from others, WE must quit these. Don’t think what possible difference would it make if Just I change. It would definitely make a difference. Change always begins with one. Quit these now and welcome a happier world.
