For me, December is the end. Not just the end of a year but the end of a person. Each year I strive to become a better person. Not better to other people, better to myself. I stop doing people favours, stop putting their needs before my own and stop caring about what they do. You are stupid if you believe they will treat you as you wish to be treated. With naïveté comes personal deterioration. And with personal deterioration comes failure. You are no longer an individual , you are a play thing for people to use and throw away when they become bored. That is why, each December , I let go.
