The wise person is not the one who accumulates a lot of knowledge or experience, but the one who knows how to use effectively everything they have learned and who are able to ignore useless things, which do not allow them to grow to improve as a person.
A wise person is the one who can distinguish between the burden and that which gives them energy.
To live, after all, also means to know how to economize and understand the priorities. It seems that most of us do not apply this simple rule: according to a study conducted by Harvard University, people have the surprising ability to focus attention on things "that are not happening". We worry about unimportant things, undermining our ability to be happy in the "here and now".
The first rule of life indicates that the wisest people are those who know how to be happy and who are able to eliminate from their lives everything that harms them and that is not useful.
The art of knowing how to ignore is not easy to implement in our daily lives. This happens because ignoring implies in many cases getting away from certain situations or even certain people. We are faced with an act of pure courage, which is always preceded by an intelligent choice. We invite you to reflect on it.
To ignore is to learn to choose priorities
Being happy is the art of personal choice. We may be happy in certain circumstances in life, but most of the time it will depend on ourselves: on the decisions we make. For this reason, it is necessary to acquire a perspective that is not only more positive, but also more realistic, where self-awareness and self-esteem will always be fundamental.
Life is too short to feed on bitterness and frustration: release your tears, ignore criticism and surround yourself with people who are important to you and who care about you.
How to learn to prioritize
In order to learn to prioritize, it is necessary to give everything around us its true value. To do this, we must stick to the following points.
Ignoring certain people is also healthy
According to an interesting work published in the magazine Livescience, the personal relationships that cause us stress or suffering affect our mental health. There is an increase in blood cortisol and blood pressure, to the point where you run the risk of suffering from serious heart problems. It's not worth it.
Learn to ignore those who don't give you anything
It is not a question of bad manners nor ultimatum or blackmail. Knowing how to ignore is an art that can be achieved with elegance and without reaching out for unnecessary extreme means. You should keep these things in mind:
The art of being wise lies in understanding what to ignore, what to give attention to, and how to say "no" to those who have never bothered to say "yes" to you.
