Another year is almost gone. There have been ups and downs throughout the year. Whether the year has been good or bad is down to personal preference. However, toward the end of the year, people tend to reflect on the progress they've made. More often than not, the resolutions you had set have not been fully accomplished. Regardless of your progress, you shouldn't feel low. 2019 is almost here, and here are a few reasons to not give a damn what anyone says or thinks, and just be you.
2018 has been a tough year
This year, America has really seen it all. Anything that could go wrong has gone wrong. The war on all minorities has intensified. Leaders have taken a shot at successful women. Other minorities that have been marginalized are immigrants, LGBTQA, and others.
In 2019, don't be apologetic for the woman you are. Go all out and please yourself.
You can't please everyone
If I have learned anything about living on earth, it's that you cannot please everyone. Whatever it is you do, there is always someone waiting to take offense to your words or actions.
Why even bother? You shouldn't try to conform to any norms. As long as you're not breaking the law, go all out, and let whoever wants to get offended go right ahead and do so.
You've been meaning to leave that job anyway
Remember when you started that job, it was all interesting and you looked forward to the next day, but a while later, you got bored and couldn't wait to quit. You've always found a reason to stick to your job.
If 2018 has taught me anything, you can't wait for the stars to align. Quit that boring job, and do something you actually love.
Your opinion matters
In the world today, women are overlooked by every man. There are men everywhere waiting for you to ask anything so they can mansplain it. However, if you want to have an awesome year ahead, don't keep your opinions to yourself. Think of it this way; if you weren't meant to share your opinions, you wouldn't have the ability to.
You're over what people think about you
Everyone has what they think of you. It's not always great, but a few times, it is positive. Despite what people think about your life, you shouldn't stop your life for anyone. There's always someone who'll hate you're your post on Facebook, and you don't need to live your life conservatively for them.
You deserve yourself a great orgasm –or two
Being happy and doing as you deserve is great. It also means getting rid of that boyfriend who can't find your sweet spots. In 2019, not only do you deserve a great life, but you also need to strengthen your sex life.
You deserve the world and more
If you want to be you, you will need to define who you truly are. One of the best ways to reinvent yourself is by traveling the world. Pack your bags, pick a map, and choose a random place to go and tour.
We all make mistakes
Every woman has a mistake or two that has made them the person they are today. In your quest to not give a f*ck, feel free to be adventurous. You might make a mistake or two, but we all do, and these mistakes, will make us great in the future.
Your body is absolutely perfect
Body shaming is something that has become more and more popular with every passing year. In 2018, if you didn't fit into the ideal shape of the 'right woman,' you'd feel like an outcast. In 2019, you should know your body is just right. You should feel great in your own skin, that's all that matters.
You're not getting any younger
If you walk your whole life on eggshells, you'll always be unhappy. Go ahead and set your goals, and do what you can to achieve them. You're not getting any younger, so you might as well get started.
It's a new year!
A new year should come with new hopes, attitude, and a general change of direction. In the coming new year, give yourself a boost, and go for what you've always wanted.
