Here are the 8 things to care about less if you want to be truly happy in life. 

1. What strangers on the internet think of you

The online universe has taken our world by storm, and now more than ever, the opinions of strangers mean more to us than they should.

2. How you look every second of every day

Speaking of becoming vain, caring about your appearance a little bit too much is a guaranteed way to dig yourself into hell.

3. How quickly other people reach your dream destination

Don't obsess over other people's journeys. Become obsessed with yours.

4. How productive you are every day of the week

If you're only focused on your results, you may push yourself way too hard.

5. Which medals adorn your uniform

It is fun to have a medal-adorned uniform. But at the end of the day, it is just a few pieces of metal.

6. What your future will look like

If you focus too much on what will be instead of on what is now, you probably won't be very happy most of the time.

7. What you did in the past

You can't change what you did in the past. You can't turn back time. If you have any regrets, they will keep eating you alive until you finally let go.

8. Everything that you don't have

As soon as the feeling of novelty wears off, there you are again, running toward another new shiny thing.

Ambition is fun, but sometimes... all you need to be happy is to appreciate what is, not what could be.
