Let our positive and enriching don’t be upset quotes and sayings help us worry less and live life a little more.
A beautiful saying goes, ‘the more you know who you are and what you want, the less you let things upset you.’
The lack of self-clarity about our mind’s nature, why we feel in a particular way, and not knowing the true purpose of our life journey causes disquiet and unsettling troubles in daily life.
What causes mental frustrations?
Have you ever honestly questioned why did I felt irked and irritated within?
The next time an inner uncomfortableness arises, pause, be with the experience, and introspect why it is happening to me?
Is it arising from an expectation being unmet in a relationship?
Is it our inner vulnerability or greed to get something in return that made us give power to the other that they can disturb our mental peace?
The three biggest culprits behind any mood upset are fear of losing one’s identity, respect, self-worth, and monetary benefits; and the inner greed for more social validation, attention, and admiration from your spouse, family, and work circles and inner compulsion to accumulate more wealth, power, fame and social status.
Without an underlying desire to want something, nobody can experience mental turmoil.
How to put an end to mental despair?
Bring self-understanding whenever things, people, situations, and events disturb you mentally. You will be better equipped how not to be upset the next time.
Bring inner wisdom of knowing who the mind is and what is the mind’s deepest desire. Only a deep self-awareness can put a full stop to all unnecessary worries and persistent mental turbulence.
A great way to live a non-agitated life is by reading, understanding, and implementing the knowledge gained from robust wisdom literature.
Some of my highly recommended wisdom books on living a really peaceful, joyful, and calming life:
Dhammapada – Lord Buddha
Holy Bhagavad Gita – Lord Krishna
Isa Upanishads, Brihadaranyaka Upanishads, and Kena Upanishad – From ancient Indian wisdom saints
Commentaries on Living – Jiddu Krishnamurti
The Prophet – Khalil Gibran
