Kicking off with having a mindset as my goal for the year itself, I was able to sort out a few things.
Some of these things included trimming out what was potentially detrimental to my well-being. I’ve also started exercising regularly and it seems to be helping a lot in managing stress and anxiety levels when it comes to dealing with other human beings in my day-to-day life. Humans are terribly complex creatures. I could probably take my whole life to try understanding humans, but it may never be enough. Nevertheless, I have a deep appreciation for those who manage to grasp what I attempt to communicate, and, instead of trying to alter me to fit a mold, actually understand and accept my mind. For a person who has been terribly misunderstood most of my life growing up, this is really important to me. I simply don’t have to worry about pandering to the world, and it takes a lot off my shoulders.
I will no longer allow myself to be guilt-tripped for striving for constant self-improvement.
All in all, it’s been a pretty good year so far, and I hope to keep up this rhythm amidst all the challenges that will present themselves to me this year.
