Q. I made a resolution not to start dating people that are bad for me this year, but already my resolve is breaking and I’m tempted to reach out to my ex. What do I do to stop myself and stop feeling so guilty?
Resolutions are like crash diets; you make such a point to stick to them that they end up failing you. The best way to ingratiate a new, positive habit into your life, is to start slow and give yourself room to grow and fail. It’s not a ‘rip off a bandaid and move on’ sort of resolution- it’s a slow and steady personal growth that will present its challenges, and hopefully, change you for the better.
Q. I feel like people are already taking the year by storm, achieving goals and setting new bars- why can’t I be that motivated and pursue my dreams and goals? Why am I feeling so stagnant?
Comparing ourselves to others is one of the quickest ways to ensure you achieve nothing and want for everything. Focus on your own path, at your own speed, and you’ll get to where you need to when you need to. Your journey is yours only and the only person you owe anything to is yourself - find happiness within yourself and your own journey, without comparing it to the growth of others. It’s important to also acknowledge what you have now and how far you’ve come, as that positive affirmation will inspire you to continue to move forward and climb new heights.
Q. My best friend is growing further and further and I find myself fearful that one day, she’ll just completely disappear. How do I convey that to her without feeling burdensome?
All friendships go through ebbs and flows, especially with age, no matter how much we try to grasp them and keep them where we’d like them. It’s impossible to maintain the same equilibrium when other factors get involved, factors like relationships, families, work, etc. Honesty is a great way to approach this with a friend, especially someone you consider a close friend. Verbalizing how you feel, adequately and maturely, so as not to overwhelm your friend also. There had to be a balance and compromise, sometimes, as circumstances change- from both sides. Find a time where you can sit down together, and convey your concerns in a way that is natural to both you and your friend and from there, you can find a way to nurture what you feel is fragmented.
