RE: Psychology Addict # 65 | Self-Awareness: Investigating the Past & Making New Year’s Resolutions.

in #psychologylast year

Welcome back Abbey

But, at the same time I encourage people to mainly focus on the now and the future

I totally agree with you here. There's no amount of focus we give to the past that will undo what has been done. This is why we need to focus on what we have the power to change; which is the present and the future.
This does not overrule the fact that we can draw lessons from the past to make for a better future.

Coming to the area of new year resolution: I wonder how many people even stick to their new year resolution after the first few weeks into the new year :) 😃
We shouldn't wait for new year to make resolutions. We can do that anytime. Even when we fall short, we can restart again and again till we hit it, and not waiting till new year (My opinion though).

Nice piece again Abbey. Much love and season's compliment from Naija

That's a hard balance, but worthy--not to feel the burden of the past, but to learn from it.

Good morning Sammi! :D

I did think of a couple of your posts while I was writing the past section for this piece :) You serve as inspiration Sammi! <3 I remembered how you mentioned something in the lines that our energies should be placed on that which we have control over: the present & the future. Not the past!

Thank you for highlighting the fact that we can always make resolutions. This is important advice indeed. It's encouraging and kind.

I am glad you liked this post Sammi.
Also, thank you for all the kindness you directed at me throughout 2019 :)

Much love to you from rainy Portugal.
Happy Holidays & a 2020 filled with prosperity and smiles!

It has always been my honour. Stay blessed Abbey
