Every year, we decide to go on our favourite social media platform and post an update such 2016 was shit but here's to a positive new year blah blah. A blogger by the name of @drewtoothpaste quite rightly pointed out that despite all these positive and optimistic post updates, things don't seem to work out the way we'd like it to, yet carry on posting these updates to appease god knows who.
People were quick to respond to his tweet with many agreeing with his update and just appreciating the fact, that despite all the unfulfilled optimistic hopes, we still be looking forward to the new year as it's in our nature to do so.

Why do people keep thinking it's going to get better? We have no reason to believe that!

So life has sucked ever since Twitter was invented?

Has there ever been a year where a million things didn't go wrong in the history of humanity? Wishing for a good year is essentially asking the world to stop being the world.

okay now do the opposite one where everyone's like "2014 was amazing, hope 2015 plunges me into hell"

2019 already boring, can't wait for 2020.

Yeah yeah, people always say that before a new year begins anyway. Whatever.
In the end it's just pointless because nobody can reverse time, even less freeze it.
A more realistic approach would be to focus on what happens in the moment.
