Why Not Make A New Years Resolution That You Can Keep
Let’s face it, sticking to New Years resolutions hardly ever happens. Gyms stay packed out from January 1st til sometime in February and then are empty once again. I am not knocking anyone who makes resolutions by any means. If you can do it, then by ALL means, DO IT (and tell ME your secrets)!
There is a resolution that I think is a resolution that everyone should make that SHOULD not be as hard as it is to keep! Being completely YOURSELF! Much harder said than done. Boy do I know all about that.
I am a people pleaser for sure. I have been since I was a kid. Always wanting to make everyone happy. Trying to be a peacemaker in all aspects of life regardless of how it effects me mentally or physically. To be honest, I did it for so long that I finally broke.
This past year has been one of those terrible years that I wish I could rewind and change it all but then again I would not want to go back through 2016 for nothing. I am glad tomorrow is the last day of 2016 and SUPER excited about 2017 getting here!
I broke this year and truly fell apart. Depression and anxiety hit really hard and intense. I know there were medical reasons for some of it but I also feel like there was a lot that built up from simply caring for everyone but myself. I wasn’t being ME because I was trying to please everyone else and make sure everyone liked me for who THEY WANTED ME to be. That is NOT the way to live.
No one seems to want to be themseleves anymore. They just want to be like the movie star they are obsessed with or a singer they love or like the well liked person at school or work. Be unique, only one person can be YOU.
Everyone has positive and negative traits that not everyone likes. BUT, that makes YOU, YOU and ME, ME! So, instead of trying to make resolutions you can’t keep, let’s make a resolution to just be YOU! Of course, the best version possible of YOU but BE YOU! Happy New Years All!
