2017 was the first year I remember many people saying was the worst ever. Repeat for 2018, 2019, 2020.
I’m sorry if your year has been difficult.
Cognitive behavioral therapy and stoicism have been helpful to me. There is much we cannot control, but we can control our response.
This past year, I read “The Daily Stoic” by Ryan Holiday. I started and ended each day with a stoic meditation. I found it helpful. I also recommend his book “The Obstacle Is The Way”.
2020 was not the year I wanted, but it was a legit good year if I do not think about my disappointment from it being different than I anticipated.
Bad things happened. Good things happened. There was good and bad stress.
I am just grateful to still be here feeling it all.
