    Post Things to give up for a happy life.

    Hello friends,

    You can always find ways or reasons to become happy. Happiness is not obtained only by adding up things to your life, sometimes you have give up certain things for getting pleasure. There are so many things that lead to stress, suffering and pain. But, to live a happy life you need to give up all the habits and behavior which give you stress and pain. Here are some of the things that you need to give up for a happy life -

    Give Up your Need to Always Be Right: Itís not that every time what you say or do will be right, sometimes you have to accept the truth that you are wrong. Always proving that you are right is the main cause of damaging any relationship. Instead of fighting on that you are only the right person, be kind and listen to others.

    Give Up on Blame: Most people have a tendency of blaming others for what he has or doesnít have. Take the responsibility of your life on yourself instead of blaming others for your bad life.

    Give up Being a Victim: Avoid proving yourself as victim for the things happening in your life. Life is a journey which can be sometimes bad and sometimes good to everyone. One has to adjust according to what life is giving you. Itís not that successful people donít have any problems in their life.

    Give up Pretending: Stop pretending to be someone or something that you are not. Getting a reward doesnít mean that you are someone great. Showing off your love and kindness to others will only create problems in your relationships with others.

    Give up your Limiting Beliefs: Donít limit yourself to do things or try something new in your life. Itís not decided at first that what is possible and impossible for you to do. Just spread your wings and fly!

    Give up your Resistance to Change: Change is always good for life. Change brings improvements in not only your life but others lives too. Never resist change but go for it.

    Give up on your Excuses: Donít let excuses limit yourself from doing any task. Just pack them and throw them out of your mind.

    Give Up Living your Life on Otherís Expectations: Stop living your life according to other peopleís expectations. You have the right to live your life in the manner you like to. Listen to others but decide yourself what is best for you.

    These are some of the things that you need to give up to live a happy and healthy life.

    Well according to me there is no good use of time than spending it with kids. They simply make our life heaven. Their innocence and worry free life takes us to another world. So this is one of the best way to stay happy.

    Indeed - the first post is a good one.


    http://www.psyking.net/id19.htm

    "Plato used storytelling {The Troubadours and Bards again. The teaching of Abaris the Druid for Pythagoras is evident here.}and literature to illustrate points about the psyche, as did Homer. In his story of the charioteer in Phaedrus, Plato likened the human being to a chariot team.


    "[As part of the team] there is a powerful, unrully horse intent on having its own way at all costs (appetite). The other horse is a thoroughbred, spirited but manageable (spirit). On catching sight of his beloved, the charioteer (reason) attempts with some difficulty to direct the two horses toward the goal, which he alone (not they) can comprehend." (Watson, p.62)


    This is an illustration of Plato's theory about conflict based on reason,emotion and drive.


    Plato also made early contributions to motivational psychology with his delineation of the drive characteristics of the psyche--that drives have a striving toward attainment of a goal and an affective coloring of pleasure and pain.


    In Plato's Symposium, he presents a dialogue on the meaning of Eros or love, in which each participant offers their interpretations. He discusses 2 kinds of love: profane and sacred. The first is concerned with the body and the second with the psyche, mind and character. Physical sexual desire is not merely concerned with sex, but a masked deisre for parenthood, an attempt to perpetuate oneself. Plato believed this passion for physical parenthood was the most rudimentary fruition of the good and the eternal. He also believed that only higher love could lead to happiness. For Plato, the love of wisdom is the highest form of love. Love can be equated with life force, as it is akin to the biological will to live and the life energy.


    Many scholars have used Plato's notions to draw conclusions about human nature. Freud's notions about the personality being dependent on the id, ego and superego are similar to Plato's 3 aspects of the psyche. Carl Jung's notions about the libido and its general nonspecialized drive character seem to stem from the early drive theories of Plato. Evolutionary psychologists discuss humans' need to reproduce copies of themselves and their gene pool. In the psychology of emotion and social psychology, psychologists have studied and outlined the different forms of love. Personality psychologists define the core form of energy residing in man, most frequently, as "psychic energy." The field of energy medicine discusses the relationship of energy centers in the body to the mental state and nature of humans."
