i can’t really means i won’t

Chocolate milk carton
All i drink these days is water, hot water, and milk (sometimes it’s chocolate, but never at home).


Can’t and won’t.

These two get used incorrectly all the time.

i can’t stick to my diet.

i can’t find the motivation to go to the gym.

i can’t get enough sleep.

i can’t find the discipline to eat better.

There are exceptions to every rule.

It’s highly unlikely that you are one of them.

It’s not that you can’t.

It’s that you won’t.

It’s too hard.

Some of my neighbors are alcoholics.

i know, i’m an alcoholic too.

And we used to spend all our free time socializing (drinking) together.

Then i became a dad.

Probably the hardest thing i’ve ever done.

Changed my i won’t to i can.
