New Year's Resolutions

Framework 2022 – by Thomas Porter – Writings by Inmates

2022 Framework!

(by Thomas Porter)

Resolutions are mostly given up on by now and we’re not even 2 weeks into the new year.

I’ve never bought into enormously unachievable resolutions, So I decided this year to share my framework which means what we are built of before our experiences shaped us, before we were touched by doubt, before insecurities became our skin and bitterness our smiles.

Framework is about small pieces of ourselves being placed on a foundation that holds us upright and healthy. I believe that for far too long we’ve placed enormous pieces of ourselves into this world of selfishness, unhealthy friendships, unequal family members, unappreciative work/ bosses, and in all this we’ve undervalued ourselves.

We’ve become lost to the dreams we once had. We don’t feel deserving of better treatment whether it’s mentally or emotionally because to demand our self-worth is reflecting on the very loss of it so long ago,

So let’s build our frame piece by small piece at a time this new year, allowing ourselves to smile with a true friend who can or has seen you at your very worst and only fought to make you know you’re not alone. Let’s address our self-doubts towards ourselves, which means to take down piece by piece of what others have placed as walls on our frame, You see, we all are Structures and from birth we’ve been told and shown many unhealthy things that have become our mental, emotional, and physical households turned now into prisons.

Resolutions shouldn’t just be made to start the new year but to building a healthier Structure for our happiness and balances, but first we have to get out of this Go Big, Everything Big. Big is a better mantra, but start small! Small means achievable and Big means a loss of ourselves; what do we remember about January 1, 2021?

So as we journey deeper into 2022, please say something kind to yourselves, See something beyond the workweek and the demands everyone has placed on you. Valuing yourself doesn’t mean you’re being selfish,

Let’s Love Ourselves Enough To Want a Healthy Framework ❤️

Thank you for reading more of Thomas’s thoughts, short but deep.

He has been locked away from the world for a long time, but it seems to me that he understands the human mind better than many of us do. The above passage touched me and made me pause, remembering past events of my life and how they’ve shaped me. (“…my framework which means what we are built of before our experiences shaped us, before we were touched by doubt, before insecurities became our skin and bitterness our smiles.”)

Will you also build your framework for 2022?

  1. I loved this writing by Thomas Porter. I, too, feel that when we can reach inside ourselves and find who we really are without everyone else’s expectations of us, we can find peace and happiness. I try to be kind to myself as the world right now is very unkind. We need to treat ourselves with the respect we want others to treat us with. Thanks for sharing this. Loved it!
