What's a hang up? A preconceived notion? A bitter memory? Or an irrational fear? Probably all of them. We've all got hang ups, things we just can't get over. Sometimes they're childish things that, when you think about them, are pretty stupid. But a lot of times, these hang ups can actually be quite debilitating and adversely affect the way we go about our lives. Things like:

1.

We are so scared of what others might think that we clam up and can't open up to new people.

2.

It's okay to be a little commitment phobic but shunning marriage is a different thing altogether.

3.

Sometimes we are so consumed with the fear of losing people that we tend to hang on to those who might not be good for us.

4.

We'd rather be comfortable in our mundane routines than try something new.

5.

It's never to late to hit those books. It's never too late to change your job. It's never too late to learn something new. Never underestimate yourself.

6.

Be happy with yourself. Don't let anyone else tell you how you should or should not look.

7.

News Flash! Nobody is perfect. Try and look beyond the superficial and see people for who they really are.

8.

You cannot and should not be in control of everything. Let life take its own course.

9.

A wise man once said, that if you have one foot in the past, and one in the future then you'll be pissing on the present. 'Nuff said.

10.

Like they say, never ever judge a book by it's cover. You never know what lies beneath the outer facade.

11.

It's perfectly acceptable to be wrong from time to time. Learn to accept your mistakes because being right all the time is a terrible burden. And impossible too.

12.

There will be people who will appreciate you and there will be those who won't. Stop trying to please the latter.

13.

People who criticize aren't always trying to put you down. Lend them a ear, take their advise, and work on it.

14.

As a person, you need to be known for something more than just the brands you carry.

15.

What's done is done, you can't change it. So why let regret take over your life?

16.

Take that leap of faith. If you put in your best, there is no reason why you shouldn't succeed.

17.

Everyone has the right to be themselves so accept them for who they are. Changing them will neither work for you nor for them.

18.

Don't let money rule your life. Family comes first.

19.

Neither everything nor everyone needs a label.

20.

Don't mistake your ego for yourself. It'll destroy you.

21.

Everyone is not the same, so stop generalizing people based on their religion, colour, caste or creed.

22.

Save yourself from all the trouble and always tell the truth no matter what.

23.

Expectations = Unhappiness.

24.

Today is all you have.So make the most of it .

25.

If someone can't like you for who you are, you don't need to pretend to be someone else just to gain their approval.

It's time we outgrew all our hang ups and moved on. I mean, it's good to try out something new once in a while right? So, why not? So sit down with a nice cup of Lipton Ice Tea , take stock of your life and let go of the things that don't matter. Much the same way as Siddharth, the young man featured in this video, let go of his.
