They find it difficult to celebrate their small wins in front of others' significant wins, neglecting that everyone has their journey and struggles. 

2. Blaming Others

Unhappy people like to justify their problems and shortcomings by blaming others. They never try to take responsibility for their problems and feel that playing the victim in every situation is effortless, which shows their powerlessness over any situation. This might bring temporary relief to them, but in the long run, things get worse for them.

3. Happiness Is an Accomplishment

We have often heard that happiness is a valid state of mind. Still, miserable individuals don't believe it and run for worldly things they think would bring them happiness, like money, fame, people, etc. Still, they forget that living in the moment and cherishing it to the fullest is an absolute joy. 

4. Perfectionist

People who thrive on perfection are disappointed and disheartened because they don't realize that perfection doesn't exist. Not everything that is taken to the extent of perfection looks excellent; it's ideal to embrace the imperfections, the flaws that make the person unique.

Many people fear new starts due to various past experiences, but if they try to stay under the blanket of fear and don't try new things, they remain far behind in life. Fear of new challenges is common, but constantly staying in your comfort zone due to fear of failure will lead to setbacks in life. 

6. Negative Self-Talk
