6 Warning Signs You’re Losing Control of Your Life

1. Your phone is never fully charged

Do you know what does it mean? You’re using your phone all day long. If it’s for your business and education, ignore this sign but otherwise, you need to answer yourself why you’re always on your phone!

Using your phone all day long is killing your productivity, it’s affecting your eyesight. The drainage of battery is directly proportional to your drained life which you’re wasting on social media and validation from strangers.

The constant notifications and beeping sound is not good for your focus as well.

2. Repeating the same mistake over and over again

My best friend was in a toxic relationship. She knew the guy was not right for her and was affecting her mind but she kept giving him chance, one after the other, and kept crying about it.

If you know that a guy/girl is spoiling your life, that alcohol is killing your relationship or business has faded numerous times; maybe it’s time for you to try another one.

Making new mistakes are far better than repeating the older ones. If you’re repeating the same mistake over and over again, you are either blindfolded or not taking life seriously.

“You never make the same mistake twice. the second time you make it, it is no longer a mistake. it is a choice.”

3. Begging someone to stay in your life

I did that once when I was 16.

I had no self-worth back then, or I wouldn’t have begged someone to stay in my life. It’s one thing I regret most in my life; giving someone the option to walk over you.

If, in case, you’re begging someone, who doesn’t want to be with you, to stay in your life; you are oblivious to the fact that they don’t want you. You can’t beg people to love you.

“Open the door next time someone wants to leave you.”

It’s a warning to gain control over your emotions and love yourself instead because a person who loves himself will need anybody else to complete them.

4. Missing out on your family

You go to meet your parents after 2 years of college and suddenly notice your mom’s grey hair and your dad’s glasses.

Suddenly, reality hits you!

You realize that your parents are actually growing old. Your one-minute call every day is going to kill you when they leave. You can take that trip later, you can attend that party some other time. However, the last phase of your parent’s life will never come back and it is when they need you the most.
Take this as a warning and spend some quality time with your family.

“First your parents, they give you your life, but then they try to give you their life.” ― Chuck Palahniuk

5. Every birthday is a warning

It’s your birthday next month and you’re planning a trip from the last few months. You’re damn excited!

But does it really make a difference?

Every year, we pass a day when we’ll leave this place but we have no idea about it. Birthdays are a sign to remind you that you’ve been on Earth long enough, and perhaps it’s time you take your life seriously.

If you haven’t done anything in your life which is worth celebrating, and if you aren’t proud of yourself; then it’s a warning to do something to have a reasonable celebration next time.

6. Constant complaining

There are two ways to live life. One is to find problems in every situation and every person you meet and then there’s another in which you enjoy every challenge that’s given to you and try to see the good in other people.

If you are complaining about your toxic boss, or an unyielding job constantly and not doing anything to change it, then you will never be going to stop complaining.

A person who isn’t complaining is busy doing the work. Be that person.


Every quote you read, every article you come across is either a sign or a warning. If you’re smart enough, you’ll notice those signs and try to do your best to get past them.

“Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!”
-Bob Marley
