7 Negative Words to Remove from Your Vocabulary to Be Happier ...

By Holly

If you want to create a more positive outlook on life, there are negative words to remove from your vocabulary. You'll be amazed by how much your attitude can change by altering the way you speak and think. You don't want to continue walking around in misery all day every day. Here are some of the negative words to remove from your vocabulary if you want to live a happier, healthier life:

1 Ugly

When you look in the mirror to find that your hair is a little frizzy, don't claim that you look ugly. It's one of the negative words to remove from your vocabulary if you want to be happier with yourself. Fix the problem with some spray, put on a hat, or accept the fact that the weather will mess with your hairstyle. Once you stop calling yourself ugly, aloud and inside of your head, you'll start feeling more beautiful.

2 Can't

When you're met with a challenge, don't say that you can't do it. You certainly can do it, but it might take some work. Stop putting yourself down, and assuming that you'll be unable to complete a task. Give yourself some credit. If you think you'll fail from the start, there's a higher chance that you will.

3 Useless

Don't ever trick yourself into believing that you're useless. You may not have found your 'purpose' in life yet, but you're still a valuable human being, so shower yourself in compliments. You don't have to turn into a cocky rockstar, but at least treat yourself with respect.

4 Boring

Don't complain about being bored in class, because you could be stuck doing something a lot more painful. Would you rather be sitting in the air conditioned room or stuck in the desert without a sip of water? Life could always be worse, so don't complain about boredom. Boredom is actually a gift, because it means you're not currently being forced to do backbreaking labor.

5 Kill

No matter how mad you get at someone, never tell them to kill themselves or claim that you want to kill them. Even though it's clear you're not being serious, it's something that should never leave your mouth. Stick to saying peaceful things and you'll become a more peaceful person.

6 Stupid

If you fail your math test, don't call yourself stupid. You're just not skilled in a certain area. Study as much as you can so you get a higher grade on your next test. If you keep failing despite how hard you try, it means that math isn't your thing. You're not stupid. You're just better at other subjects.

7 Hate

Hate is a strong word that people throw around too casually. It's about as negative as you can get, so don't use this word unless you're incredibly passionate about disliking something. The less you use the word, the better. It'll make you a more positive person that sees the good in things, even if you're not a fan of them.

The way that you speak aloud and speak to yourself in your mind can severely influence your mood. If you want to be a happier person, you have to think optimistic thoughts. Are you a negative person or are you able to see the positives in most things?
