Why am i not happy with my life

Are you wondering why you aren’t happy with your life?
Do all the activities you do seem boring and uninteresting?
Have you tried to do something new or to travel yet found yourself still feeling unhappy?

If your answers were yes then most probably you don’t understand how the psychology of happiness works. I have mentioned many times before that we become happy when we pursue the things that we really need.

We all have different emotional unmet needs and whenever we have a chance to satisfy some of these unmet needs we feel happy and satisfied. The key to become happy with your life is to ask yourself the question, when was the last time I felt really happy? And then do the things that you used to do at this time.

When was the last time you felt really happy

When was the last time you felt really happy? Even if that was long ago I want you to recall this moment and remember the things that you were doing at that time.

Most probably you will find that you were happy with your life because you were doing things that you aren’t doing now because of:

  • Claiming that you have other priorities: This is one of the biggest ironies that makes most people unhappy with their lives. While everyone claims they want to be happy they don’t do the things that make them happy because of claiming to be busy working, studying....etc (see How your job can make you unhappy)
  • forgetting what makes you happy: Lots of people aren’t happy with lives because they forgot about their real needs and wants. They became trapped in routine lives where they do the same things everyday without realizing that becoming happy requires that they go after their unmet needs
  • Trying to find happiness the wrong way: Some people are more positive, they try to become happy by traveling, hanging out with friends or doing something new but they never feel truly happy. You will only feel happy when you go after the things that make you tick, for some people this will be money, for others this will be fame while for a third group this might be something else. Knowing what makes you happy is the key because each person is different

Why you are not happy with your life

In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression i said that you won’t be happy with your life before you manage to find the real things that make you happy then go after them. Keep giving excuses such as there is no time or there are other priorities and you will remain unhappy.

If happiness isn’t on the top of your list of priorities then why are you reading such an article now?

For me, my happiness levels soar when I find myself successful in both my career and my social life. One of my worst down times happened was when I was focusing on financial success to the extent that I didn’t have time to socialize! Just like millions I was giving excuses and saying that work is more important than anything else but soon I realized that happiness is as important as my work.

When I restored the balance to my life I felt happy once again and found myself doing even better in work.
