As one year comes to a end, most adults begin to set new goals with the hope that everything written on their New Year’s resolutions list will be attainable within the 365 days. Unfortunately, many people who make these resolutions will not change either their ways or their choices. Change isn’t brought about by passivity. Some people who hope for a better year – refuse to let go of last year’s mistakes, negative relationships, or bad habits that has been causing the repetitive pain in their lives.
Painful Reality Check: To have a new beginning, you must get rid of old stuff. It’s not healthy for you to stay in any relationship that is the source of your unhappiness.

Every time the same person comes back with the same reasons and seek your forgiveness – tell them straight up, you’re not a therapist, but you can recommend one.
It’s exhausting to live in a home where you keep having to swat flies – find a permanent resolution. Painful Reality Checkpoint: Stop trusting words and ignoring their actions. Anyone who is creating pain and havoc in your life – STOP calling it L❤️VE.

Doesn’t it feel dysfunctional as adults to have a lifetime membership to “The Entitled Generation Club”? At some stage in life, we must begin to appreciate our struggles.

Most adults takes pride in making New Years Resolutions. It’s like scribbling on a dream canvas – the apple in the sky theory. It ain’t going to work unless you commit to put the work in.
Resolution goals may look like this:
- to be more disciplined
- to travel
- pay off all debts
- start a savings account
- forgive more
- think positively
- worry less
- career inspiration
- love more
- pray more
- loyalty in relationships
- good health
Nothing on your list will be accomplished if you’re NOT preapred to put in the work.
