Lowering your standards and giving in to mediocrity will only bring dissatisfaction and grief to you in the long run. Settling in for less might sound less bothersome now, but when a person practices this for long, they become an accomplice in their own dissatisfaction. That’s why with 2021 almost here, you need to stop settling for things that are not good or healthy for you in the long run.
On the other hand, as you begin to make decisions that reflect what you desire from your life and your relationships, you will start to feel better about yourself. The better you feel, the easier it becomes for you to reject mistreatment. And when you resist the need to settle, you will be rewarded with opportunities.
Here Is What Each Zodiac Sign Needs To Stop Settling For In 2021
Go for your dream career instead of settling for one that does not make you happy.
The first thing you need to do is take a step back to understand who you are and why you feel stuck. Many times we end up in careers that can seem like compromises. But be assured that it is never too late to change. Tiny but consistent steps forward can lead to monumental changes.
Try to recollect what you are good at and what made people compliment you. Consider some options that you had dismissed years back because they seemed unrealistic or impractical then.
Open your mind. Make your choices based on what you want to do instead of what you should do. Explore the possibilities, develop a plan, and get there.

Be in a relationship where your feelings matter and not just your presence.
Many a time you get to hear that you are mediocre and not good enough. Somebody who claims to be close would never say such things. They let you down in small ways and if that becomes a constant, it is a sign to take stock of your relationship. A healthy relationship is built on respect. So if your partner always lets you down, it is a sign that they aren’t getting you all that you deserve.
Such partners don’t mention your relationship on social media and exclude you from their friend groups. You don’t get the attention you deserve and they aren’t around to support you. To top it all, they are critical of you and embarrass you in public.
