I never make New Year’s Resolutions. I suspect that my dislike of celebrating life’s milestone might be the source of this distaste.
I broke with personal tradition and resolved to change myself
But some time last year, I broke with personal tradition and resolved to change myself, and my behavior, in one significant way. I did this out of a desire for peace, for a measure of serenity in my own head.
In 2021, in response to the torrents of insult, threat, rage and abuse that seem to have engulfed humanity, I resolved to be (at least outwardly) kind and understanding toward people who piss me off.
So far, so good!
