A new year’s resolution you’ve never been able to keep.
I stopped making resolutions after making one to be a better husband only to discover my wife didn’t make any reciprocal one.
The result was making an obvious effort and my wife using that effort and her knowledge of my resolution to criticise my every move.
It was a pointless exercise and led me to believe resolutions were a useless exercise when they could so easily be broken.
I found it troubling when I reslised I was no longer complying with the resolution plus there was a period of guilt when I understood the futility of my actions.
Since that day I determined it was far more constructive for me to resolve to be as good as I could be.
