I chose acceptance as my word for 2017 because it really accurately depicts my goals for the year, which are based around accepting myself and others. I want to make myself a better person and be someone everyone feels comfortable around.
I really want to stop procrastinating and accept my work, because just trying to forget it only makes things worse. I also want to socialize more to get more social skills, and be happier. I need to stop getting so mad when people disagree with me, because we have to accept people and agree to disagree, so we have a functional world. Life would be so boring if we all thought the same way, so why do we get mad when people think differently? Another thing I do is talk behind people’s backs. It’s only about people I don’t like, but I shouldn’t talk bad about anyone, because I’d feel awful if people did that to me.
I have anxiety. I need to accept that and stop pretending there’s no problem. I need to stop blaming myself for my anxiety, and keep it from controlling my life. I can defeat it, I know it’s not my fault, and I’m not faking it. I shouldn’t be ashamed to be the way I am, and I have to take care of myself, even if I feel like I don’t deserve it. Other people have gotten through it, and I can do it too. I have anxiety. It’s a part of me, but I am more than anxiety. I am myself, and I am strong.
I will try my hardest to do these things and achieve my goals, no matter how hard it is. My 2017 will be my year of happiness, acceptance, and friendship. There is nothing I can’t achieve when I put the work in.
