2022 Sucked

If I had to sum up the year 2022 with one word then “sucky” comes close. People near and dear to me suffered immensely in 2022, both mentally and physically. The underlying causes include illnesses, financial troubles, and addictions. 2022 wasn’t all bad though, more on that later.

I hate to say this, but because there were so many bad things happening all through the year to so many people I love and care about and rely on for support, it beat me down too. It made me downright depressed.

Also, I’ve had to struggle with a problem of my own. In the beginning of 2022, I found out that the person who I’d known since 2011 and who I thought was my best friend had just been using and abusing me. That revelation chocked me to the core. It hit extra hard since this year I desperately needed the friend I thought they were. I’ll skip the details for now and rant about it some other time.

OK that’s enough negativity, let’s look on the bright side of things.

I’m much healthier and happier now that the fake friend is out of my life. Good riddence! Now I have more energy and a brighter outlook on life. 🙂

I found out who my real friends are, I’m so grateful you’re in my life! You know who you are. 🤗 Some of you I met for the first time in 2022, and some of you I developed I closer friendship with. Thank you all for being there!

And not the least, it looks like most of the people who suffered in 2022 will make complete, or near complete recoveries. 😀

Now let’s close the book on 2022 and look forward to 2023!
