The decade is ending and some people have begun sharing their accomplishments on social media. This went on okay as some people proudly named the things they’ve done over the past 10 years.
This began when a Twitter user sent out a prompt that quickly went viral:
Some people achieved great things, such as degrees or better physical or mental health. Others shared stories about starting a family or adopting a pet.

But it is social media, and things didn’t stay wholesome for long. Some people began criticizing the prompt because it could make others compare themselves to their peers.

Others on social media felt it would be a ploy for some people to gain more followers.
This has just became a license for people to flex on all their followers. Change my mind. https://t.co/gu6R9OBO5f

But some folks actually defended the prompt and those who took it seriously.
Others took a compassionate approach at the prompt.
Please don’t let that “what have you accomplished this decade?” twitter thing make you feel bad. Everyone has their own journey, challenges, privilege, luck, etc. that play into it. Just do your best and try hard to be compassionate with yourself. 😀

Well! Whether or not you participate, it’s just a Twitter prompt.
But isn’t this the best accomplishment we ALL can take part in?
Not to be sincerely cheesy but maybe the greatest achievement of our decades was the friends we made along the way.

Either way, 2020 will be here soon, and the new decade is an opportunity to keep thriving, or laying low.
Feel free to share your plans or goals for then with us in the comments section.
