Pardon my bluntness, but New Years Resolutions are bullshit. Why so much hate you ask? Because most people make them out of feelings of societal obligation (something I abhor), not because they actually WANT to change something. Sure, most people really do want to lose weight, exercise more, save more money, give up (insert your biggest vice here). But there’s a big difference between wanting something to happen and actually putting in the work in to make it happen. If you REALLY want something, nothing stands between you and the Thing. (Sidebar, same goes for people who say they’re “too busy”. Bullshit. You’re not too busy, you’re just prioritizing other Things). Resolutions often fall short at the part of doing the Action. But why does this happen so often?
