Year 2020 and the streak of tragedies

I’ve been thinking about something. Personally I think year 2019 was pretty good for me and for the world in general. However literally a day after new year things took a dark turn.
My life suddenly experienced a downturn, things at work and in private life changed for the worse. Not only that, I feel like I am loosing touch with the entities I used to communicate with on daily basis. Even my rituals are less successful than they used to be. For now I am holding out but every day since new year has been a struggled wrecked with stress and nervousness.
I don’t feel it’s just me however. The recent events around the world have likewise taken a downturn.

Is anyone else feeling the same? Or is it just me that feels like that? What can we do about it?


I edited out some stuff that led directly to political comments, those are now prohibited by the admins, sorry:

Can people please limit this to doscussing personal experiences, NOT politics or highly-politicsed topics (which means, topics where you believe a political decision or action has led to or could abate the issue). :+1:


Human beings grow during adversity. Embrace it and keep pushing.


Aside from (indeed) the virus which is a bit of a “novelty” I find this year like the others, although my utopian self thought that a new decade was an opportunity for some improvement.

You gotta scramble the eggs to make the omelette. Transition periods are always chaotic.


it’s shaping up to be the best year in my life, i think we’re seeing the chaotic uprooting of oppressive institutions and systems which i welcome enthusiastically


Just keep your head up. Things will get better and these feelings will pass.


I think this poem best describes how to view struggles in life
