New Year’s resolutions have gotten a bad rep. We’ve started to deem them silly and pointless as we can make any desired changes at any time that we choose. There is no need to wait for a new year, which is really just another day on the calendar.

But, a new year naturally brings with it optimism. It is the proverbial page-turner for our lives — A fresh start. It gives us a specific moment we can pinpoint to kind of wash away all that happened prior and begin again. Does it really change anything?

We head into a job interview knowing that we have the experience and skillset to request a $100K annual salary, yet we sign an offer for $50,000 a year. Claiming that we want a fulfilling, healthy, romantic relationship, we continue to make questionable dating decisions and find ourselves with people that stress us out, hurt us, and offer very little of what we look for in a partner.
