It is inevitable that infinite ambition within a model of finite resources will lead to collapse. In the context of a system that preys on insecurity and desire, it becomes a radical act to say “I have enough. I am enough.” My hope is not that you walk away from this with a sense of shame for your desires, but to look at the system and the people that profit off of them with fresh eyes. To channel your ambition toward building something new, embodying change on the small scale while advocating for systemic reform. That sounds like a worthwhile resolution to me.
