By Sajeer Shaikh | 20 Jan, 2018

It’s hard enough to stick to your resolutions, to begin with. Let’s face it – we all suck at the whole “new year, new me” stuff. However, for some people, following through with resolutions becomes an absolute necessity. Here are some resolutions by people suffering from poor mental health that we hope they’re able to follow through with:

1. “Don’t let what others say define me in any way.”

2. “Focus on myself this year. This year is all about healing.”

3. “Finally have the courage to get therapy.”

14. “Be braver, fight harder and emerge stronger by the end of 2018.”

These are some pretty inspirational resolutions, tbh. And obviously, none of them will be easy to follow through with. When you suffer from poor mental health in any way or form, things just become that much harder. However, let’s wish these folks the absolute best and hope they’re successful by the end of 2018.
