And good riddance.
I think by now it’s clear that October was never meant to be my month in the town of Salem. The plus side for me is that I will start being a lot more genuine with people whom I made a strong effort to be genial with. They’ll have ignored me for so long that if they only notice me when they hate me, well, that’s on them. They had their chance.
The people who have been with me from day one and didn’t stab me in the back will be the only people I make time for. The rest can bite me.
All I know is that I want this year behind me as soon as possible. We have no way of knowing of ’17 will be any better, but tomorrow is always better simply because it exists. It’s a possibility. It’s never guaranteed, so naturally we appreciate it more when we receive it and it becomes the present.
