Remember: friend drama is not ok! Family drama is not ok! Work drama is not ok! It IS ok to say "No"! Perhaps you're like me and think making resolutions instead of daily changes is stupid, but like me, you just want a fresh start. Although this year was really difficult for me, I did have some blessings (I don't much care for that word, but I think it's pretty applicable here). I made many changes in my life, have grown tremendously through hard work, but the blessing was in a renewed friendship. This person and I are just so in tune with each other, and it's captivating watching our new friendship blossom. You really can't force things like that. We had known each other for a long time, but sometimes you just click in a different way, and the friendship transforms before your eyes.
For 2019, I make no promises to anyone but myself. I promise to focus on me. I promise to not let others dictate my mental health. I promise to only associate myself with people who genuinely care about me and my well being. I wish the same for you, reader. We all deserve peace. It's not easy to attain, but it's definitely worth the effort. See you next year!
