The year 2018 is near it’s end.
And gladly say goodbye to it.
2018 has a lot happening to me, it made me feel sad.
This will be a massive rant, so fasten your seat belts!
My family has been plagued by various issues, mostly about inheritance of my late grandpa’s belongings.
A huge debate amongst my uncles over some material stuff, which put the family into “factions”.
The family is just torn and sets a bad mood wherever and whenever family members meet.
I don’t care about belongings, I care about people.
But this is the story of my dad, maybe more on that in another story.
Another issue in the family is with my brother.
He is married in a foreign country and has his own family now.
The problem is, he never contacts us unless he needs us to do something for them.
He never contacted mom once in these 2 years, not even when she was sick.
At the time his wife was pregnant, my mom asked her when the baby was expected, but no reply.
My parents only get to know when the baby was almost 2 weeks old.
And his excuse for all of this? “I am very busy.”
I just feel disappointed in my brother for being so cold.
2 of my best friends have been each other’s friends for a very long time now.
They share each other’s stories, their opinions, their troubles, gave each other advice, and on top of that tried to help one other.
It’s something I thought was true friendship.
But something happened between them, they had a fight and split up.
It’s heartbreaking to see my group of friends crumble and falling apart.
During the Summer, I lost my job.
A job I have been working at for over 4 years.
Got betrayed by the trainee which I had trained myself.
This year, we were plagued by various illness.
The year started with a very mean flu going on, nothing too bad.
My dad got a stroke.
My mom somehow got the chicken-pox at her age?
She also got a huge painful spot on her back, which got infected.
Luck to say nothing too bad happened and everyone recovered from all illnesses.
Last, but not least many people died.
Some of them were my heroes, like favorite authors, writers and directors of franchises I grew up with.
Others were people I knew.
But most saddening, a precious friend who took his own life.
A lot of negativity that has been building up throughout this year.
I am done with all this.
So goodbye 2018 and let’s hope for a better 2019, or rather a better future.
I wish you all the best for the rest of the Holidays,
the rest of 2018 and whatever future there is!
Thank you for reading.
