A new year brings feelings of a fresh start and new hopes, but it also brings a wave of worldly messages telling you that a new year requires a new you. These messages say that you can only be happy if you lose weight, get new clothes, find more friends, and so on. You hear these messages in the media, at school, and sometimes from those closest to you.
The problem with these messages is that they’re not true. If you examine them closely, you’ll discover that the true motive behind the messages is usually to convince you to buy into something either with your money or your time. But you don’t have to!
