Share a supportive message for New Year

Hey everyone,

New Years can be a really difficult time of year for lots of people for many reasons. I thought it would be nice to have a thread for anyone to share their advice to help those who find this time of year difficult.

If you have a supportive message to share to help those who find this time of year difficult, post it below <3
Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    It has nearly come to the end of another year, which marks a brand new year to come. I know that for some new years will be difficult especially the thought of going into a new year. Honestly, and I will be honest 2022 has been a tough old year hasn't it?. I found it went faster than I thought it would be. I know that the thought of going into 2023 can be scary. But just think of how far you have come. You have made it into another year which in my eyes is a very big achievement.

    I agree with @Emma, as new years is only a day and then afterwards will be a new start. Let 2023 be a new start for everyone to start again and also to enjoy. I'd say going into 2023 my advice would be to look after yourselves and prioritise time for yourself. I know that there is a stigma about looking after ourselves but it's just as important to check in on ourselves just it is as with others or loved ones. It is okay to not be okay going into 2023 as storms will eventually pass over time. Let 2023 be fresh and exciting. Let it bring you happiness and joy. Explore with passion and love. May it be filled with love and happiness for all.

    Sending hugs,

    I know new years can be tricky, especially with everyone talking about making all these major changes to their lives, and it can often become overwhelming. But remember you are not defined by any sort of new years resolutions and if you do or don't succeed with them. If you make a change that's good for you and it turns out successful then that's amazing. But if nothing really changes for you during the turn of the new year - that's also okay. Your journey is your own so try not to compare yourself to the people around you (although easier said than done I know)

    What is important is that we try and protect our mental well-being the best we can - and this will look different for different people. But I know you will get through it and hopefully, 2023 turns out to be an amazing year for you all, full of happiness, love and wonderful new experiences and adventures.

    Sending new years hugs to everyone, whether you choose to celebrate it or not
