Get out of your own way. Stop judging everyone and everything. Pride is one of the greatest enemies to your happiness and growth. Open your mind before you open your mouth. Dont hate what you dont know. The mind is like a parachute it doesnt work when its closed. Or as C.S. Lewis so profoundly put it, A proud person is always looking down on things and other people and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something beautiful that is above you.
