Why is it OK to keep things to yourself


Have you ever taken a step back and looked at your life to realize that you share way to much of it and that is the reason sometimes things don’t go as good as you planned? Well, I have.

I was the one that would share anything – specially anything good that was going on. And I have realized that maybe, I should stop doing that.

I have found myself sharing such happy moments or decisions of my life and having people replying in a very negative and, at times, envious way. Why can’t people just feel happy for another’s happiness? It is something I never understood and because of that, I have come to a point in my life where I share less and less of my happiness to others, unless they are my very close friends or family.


I believe that people have their own energy according to their thoughts about or towards you so, in my mind, if someone isn’t truly, genuinely happy for you but is, in reality, jealous of your goals, that will reflect their negative energy in your direction. It will affect not only your mood at that time but I strongly believe that it really affects the way things go in your life in general.

Some people might say it is fate and that if it didn’t happen it is because it isn’t meant to be and I do agree with that too.

But I also agree that if you don’t want negative energy and thoughts in your life you should not only surround yourself with positive people but also limit the amount of individuals you share your biggest life achievements with.


Keeping your happiness to yourself and to the ones that truly love you might be one of the best things that you can do. As well as surrounding yourself with good, positive people that bring joy to your life.

Since I started doing all the above, I have become a more relaxed, happy person and I am very thankful of that.
