The answer to whether or not it is cringy is not a simple one, as it depends on the individual's perspective and beliefs. As the end of this year approaches (or, if you are reading this in the future, at that time), many people are likely interested in writing down resolutions or year recaps for various reasons. The most common one is the fact that they wanna better themselves, where the saying ‘’NEW YEAR NEW ME!’’ can be fitting best to describe it.
Each person may have their motivations for doing so, such as setting goals, reflecting on their experiences, or holding themselves accountable for making positive changes in their lives. Still, it's important to note that not everyone finds value in setting New Year's resolutions, and that's perfectly okay. It's a personal choice and what works for one person may not work for another.
Now, let's get down to the real matter at hand! You might be wondering what we mean by this right? Well, as this is a page focused on the gothic subculture, it would be out of context to only talk about New Year's stuff without incorporating a gothic twist! And to do that allow us first of all to answer this question:
What is a Goth-themed new year?
Goth New Year is a celebration that some members of the goth subculture may participate into mark the beginning of a new year. The celebration may involve goths gathering together to listen to goth music, dress in goth fashion, and participate in activities that are associated with the goth subculture. Some goths may also celebrate by decorating their homes or event spaces with goth-themed decorations, such as black candles, skulls, and other gorgeous gothic imagery. It's important to note that not all goths celebrate Goth New Year and that how goths choose to celebrate the holiday may vary greatly. Some goths may prefer to celebrate more traditionally, while others may choose to mark the occasion with more alternative or unconventional activities.
With these points in mind, let's return to the topic of New Year's resolutions. There are many different views on New Year's resolutions and how they can be used to set goals and make positive changes in one's life. Some people view New Year's resolutions as a helpful tool for setting and achieving specific goals and may find that setting resolutions for themselves helps to motivate and inspire them to work towards their goals. Others may view New Year's resolutions as overly ambitious or unrealistic and may feel that they are setting themselves up for failure by making resolutions that are difficult or impossible to achieve. For these individuals, making resolutions may feel like a burden or an obligation, rather than a positive and motivating experience.
There are several reasons why setting New Year's resolutions can be a helpful and positive thing. Here are a few:
1️⃣ Setting resolutions can help to focus your efforts and motivation on specific goals. By setting a resolution, you can narrow your focus and work towards achieving something specific, rather than trying to make many different changes at once.
2️⃣ Resolutions can help to hold you accountable. By resolving, you are committing to making a change in your life, which can help to keep you motivated and on track.
3️⃣ Resolutions can help you to track your progress. By setting a resolution, you can measure your progress toward a goal and see how far you've come. This can be a great way to stay motivated and feel a sense of accomplishment.
4️⃣ Resolutions can help to encourage personal growth and development. By setting a resolution, you can challenge yourself to try new things and learn new skills, which can be a great way to grow and develop as a person.
5️⃣ Making resolutions can be a fun and exciting way to start the new year. Setting a resolution can be a way to mark the start of a new year and look forward to all the possibilities that the year ahead holds. Ultimately, whether or not to set New Year's resolutions is a personal decision, and it's up to each individual to decide whether this tradition is something that they find helpful or meaningful. However, for many people, setting resolutions can be a positive and helpful activity that encourages personal growth and development.
