I used to be very unhappy .I always underestimated myself.i dint value myself.I dint know I am better than i think.

That’s just the way my mind wants to work. It wanted me to focus on the negative.Throughout my life I have had times where I have had nothing and also times where I have had everything (or at least what I had thought was everything). It didn’t matter. Stuff doesn’t matter. It’s all about what’s inside.
Today, at age 23, I am a happy and content person (most of the time). So what changed? Did I win the lottery? Did I become a monk? Nope. I just became willing to change and every day I make a conscious decision to seek happiness in my life. I want to become a better person each day. I want to be happier. The happier I am, the more useful I am to myself and everyone around me. The more I can help other people the more i learn.

I still go through times when I revert back to being negative and thus become unhappy. But I keep trying and work to become just a little bit better each day. Do you want to be happier? Do you want more happiness? Here are some of these things that have worked for me:
