Sometimes we all struggle with our feelings, emotions, and daily habits. Some we already know we should stop doing, and some we do without even realizing how bad they are for us.
Here are 7 things you should avoid doing if you want to grow, inspired by Jane Goodall
1. Being in a relationship with someone just because you feel bored or lonely.
2. Trying to solve everyone's problems.
3. Trying to win every conversation you have with people.
4. Doing something just because it makes your parents and family happy while you are actually unhappy.
5. Constantly complaining about something that you could have already changed.
6. Creating fake problems so that you don't have to deal with your real problems.
7. Trying to make someone love you when they are not interested in you.
You can do it. But always remember:
As Jane Goodall once said:
"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
"Each one of us matters, has a role to play, and makes a difference. Each one of us must take responsibility for our own lives, and above all, show respect and love for living things around us, especially each other."
Jane Goodall is a highly respected member of the world scientific community. In her leisure time, she observed native birds and animals, making extensive notes and sketches, and read widely in the literature of zoology and ethology. From an early age, she dreamed of traveling to Africa to observe exotic animals in their natural habitats.
