2019 is fast approaching. Soon, 2018 will be left behind in a burning, rotting wreck where it belongs and the New Year will herald the arrival of new challenges, new opportunities, and most importantly, new resolutions. Will you be able to keep them? If you're like 99.8% of the country, probably not, but...maybe this year's the year!


Reddit user, u/oknatethegreat, wanted to know what are you hoping to improve for the coming year when they asked:

Reddit, what's your New Year's resolution for 2019?

Work On That Foreign Language

Improve my German to the point I can at least talk to my coworkers without them having to switch to english

Move on from my sh-tty relationship.

Moving on from sh-tty relationships can be tough, but sooo worth it in the long term.

Wish you best of luck buddy.

Can't Seduce You If It's Not There

Eat better. I've got the exercising thing down. I just struggle with excessive snacking.

Don't buy the candy. If it's in the cupboard it's free. It's easier to ignore it once then twice a day.

Fruit lots of fruit. I don't know if 10 apples a day is healthy but I stopped buying candy and less sugar = less pain and it became self reinforcing the same way a coffee makes you enjoy the bitter.

Aiming For The Stars

Get a real career, be more productive, try.

I believe in you

Food is a totally subjective thing. What has one person drooling might leave another dry-heaving just thinking about.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

Redditor General-Pea2016 wanted see who would be willing to spill some tea about life, they asked:

"What have you never told anyone?"

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
