2021 sucked for me (and a lot of others). I didn’t know how to frame it, but i have been meaning to write about it since long.
It sucked in more ways than one. Of course, the obvious one. The second wave of Covid hit India and how. Left us scarred for life. Lost family member and many known ones. I honestly have nothing but gratitude for all of us who recovered. It was the worst, most difficult time for a lot of people. The medical infrastructure in India crashed badly, people were struggling for hospital beds, oxygen cylinders and this is India’s that population who can afford to. The biggest blessing at that time was not to see a hospital. And, therefore, blessed i was. My parents, Rahul and I, all of us got Covid. My brother had antibodies from the first wave I guess which is why he didn’t get it.
Apart from Covid, what really hurts me this year beyond limits is that I had two goals for this year (that i won’t be sharing at this point) none of which I could fulfill. Here’s the deal – it hurts not because they didn’t get fulfilled but because the onus for these two was completely on me. So, you can say that I was in a huge self-loathing or self-hatred phase this year.
Actually one of the goals is super personal and ideally it shouldn’t even be a goal, it should just happen as a regular thing. But it didn’t. The fact that I couldn’t take a move on this made me care so less about the other goal (which actually is a goal, something i have to do as a life goal that will make me extremely happy for myself).
Now I feel like I should also do a things i was thankful for in 2021, but yeah, i am sorry for starting this year’s posts like this.
I hope it only gets better and happier from now for you and me! Wishing you all a wonderful start to the new year ❤️

Happy New Year, Srish!
Don’t be so hard on yourself! I know it is easier said than done! But goals shouldn’t be restricted to the confines of 365 days – or so I keep telling myself – since I didn’t do half of what I planned for 2021 either.
Grateful that we all got through that year and looking forward to what 2022 hold!
Thanks Mukesh. That’s some good advice 🙂
Hope you’re doing good now. Covid has left many voids.
I think that surviving the past two years are much of an achievement. There are plenty of challenges ahead.
I wish you & your family all health & happiness.
Hope this new year brings many smiles.
Best wishes, Tanishq.
Thank you, Tanishq. I wish the same for you and more! Thanks for always making time for this space on the internet ☺️
Hi Srishty, don’t be so hard on yourself. This has been a tough year emotionally and every which way. Just getting through it feels like an achievement. See if you can achieve your goals coming year. If not, think whether this is something you actually want or just feel like you should want it.
Wish you a happy new year!
