To talk a little seriously for a moment this whole thing about blaming a year for how bad it’s been perceived as is kind of a silly thing at best, an actually harmful frame of mind at worst. I know it’s “just a meme” but we’ve seen this kept repeating over and over for quite a few years now and each time people seem to think a new year is going to be the solution.
The calendar ticking over is not going to change anything. This is where I mean the harmful mindset comes in. if things are bad you need to try to change them, not wait for the world to fall into the correct configuration on it’s own. No I don’t mean you should try to change the world, quite the opposite, you only need to change YOUR world.
We will always be unhappy if we’re looking at goals that are too large for us to accomplish on our own. If we hinge our mental well being on the large issues being solved we will only wear ourselves out without accomplishing anything. Find smaller issues in and around yourself, that’s where you can put your energy and effort to actually see results and that might just make the next year a better one.
Sorry, let the memes resume.
