I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions because to be honest, I just can’t stick to them. But there’s one thing which I wouldn’t really call a promise I made to myself or a resolution but rather a subconscious thought and I suppose inspiration I’ve had in my mind and heart; to just do things which make me happy. Just the little things like sleeping in on a Saturday morning, reading a good book, going out to do things I like for myself etc. Yep, as simple as that. It’s something we all say every day but I don’t think we really follow. As nice as it is to be there for other people, I feel I’ve learnt overtime that it’s unhealthy to give yourself to the point where you are surrendering your happiness for simply nothing in return. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Capricorn, so I’m an all or nothing kind of a person, giving and loyal. That being said, I think it’s important to recognise the difference between a relationship where your giving nature is appreciated and reciprocated and one where it is being taken advantage of. These kinds of relationships are negative as are the people you share them with. So choose wisely because you’ll never be able to live a positive life in a negative environment. Be brave enough to let go and give yourself what you deserve. Don’t allow yourself to feel as though your happiness depends on somebody else because I’ve been there and trust me, it doesn’t. After all, the loneliest feeling isn’t actually being alone, it’s being surrounded by all the wrong people.
