I know I'm not the only who has this sentiment towards the year, 2016 really f*cked a lot of us over. If I'm being honest I know that I've had a lot easier than a number of people, but I still felt the horrid weight of the countless waves of tragedy this year has brought the world. I've never felt the constant feeling of helplessness, which is crippling to be matter of fact.
For me this was the year I realized that it's a dog-eat-dog world, and call me a cynic but the fact that I've cut out six close friends is testament to that. To add on to that there's the realization that the world is slowly edging towards disaster, a mad man is about to become the leader of one of the world's most powerful nations, thousands of people are being slaughtered, my own country is inching towards civil unrest, and my biggest concern is where do I fit into this chaos and mayhem.
However, 2016 was also my year of discovery. I'm entering this year loving myself 200%. I've realized I'm fine on my own and I'm quite happy at that. I'm explored my sexuality and in this I guess I've found my self-worth. I think so far this year I've made decisions I've made decisions that have morphed my understanding of myself and they've worked out for my emotional, mental and metaphysical well being, however seeing as mercury is in retrograde, I'll hold off on any decision-making until after the start of next year.
My message for the year 2016 is,
You have been cruel and unkind,
Toughened skin into hide,
But thank you.
