Soon, the new year will start and with it many people will write down their new year’s resolutions.
Some thoughts about how I would formulate mine for a maximum of motivation:
Write something that can not be destroyed in a single moment. Imagine you say “I won’t watch porn in 2019”. In the very moment you relapsed, you lost all the motivation of the resolution. In the worst case that could be in the first week of january. Also, choose something realistic
my resolutions will be something like
- Till sommer (my birthday), I will reach the highest streak I’ve ever had
- I won’t relapse twice in the same week.
It is tough but possible. If I relapse once. I can still reach my goals. And even if I relapsed twice in the same week I still have my other resolution
