Lame Reasons People Give Not to Change Their Life

You're not happy with your life? Well change it! It's that simple! Don't use any of these reasons not to have the life you want or deserve.

The Top Ten

1 I'm plagued with bad luck

I'm happy with my life - BorisRule

This is unfortunately 100% true for me

To quote Stephen Leacock: "I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have." - PetSounds

So change that. Do what makes you happy. - PositronWildhawk

2 I'm not good enough

How I'd like to shake those who use this as an excuse. Victims give excuses. Self pity is a terrible thing. If you sit on your bed, head in hands and spout the "I'm not good enough" nonsense, you surely won't be any good. Stop fighting yourself! Take control! We all have setbacks, rejection, heartbreak but you're weak if you let it control you. Treat life as a game that you are determined to win; treat setbacks as a chance to try again. At the end of the day, you only have yourself to look after you because no one else can do it for you. You want your life to change? Change it! It's that simple. - Britgirl

Defeatest attitude. How do you expect to move forward if you constantly tell yourself this? - Britgirl

3 I'm happy as I am

Can you honestly say that you're completely happy with every aspect of you're life? No? Change it! - Britgirl

At this moment in my life, I can actually say this truthfully. I love my existence and wouldn't change a single detail. Oh, except for the fact that I could really use a new turntable. (Christmas is coming, hint hint…. ) - PetSounds

4 I don't know what to do with my life

Maybe you do, you're just too lazy to take a step forward... - Britgirl

5 I'm waiting for the New Year

Don't put off until tomorrow (or New Year) what you can do right now! Why wait? - Britgirl

6 I'm too old

Too use the top tens I'm a millennial most people I think are like Gen Z.

Well, I'm 12, so this is a terrible excuse. - RockFashionista

If you're still alive, then you're not too old. Stop hidhng behind your age. - Britgirl

7 I'm too busy

In other words, it's not important enough for you to make time. - PetSounds

8 I'm too tired

I just realised... This is every excuse ever for me.
Either this, or 'I'm lazy' - Flamesofsilver

9 I don't have the time

But time is forever passing, and any wasted moments are ones you'll never get back. You had time to talk, now use time to make a change. - Cyri

Really, someone said that to me once when we were talking about changes he wants in his life.

10 I'm in a relationship
