In the words of a long-ago commercial, "you've come a long way, baby!" this year. I hope that when you read and reread the post you made, you will honor yourself at how you have responded to pressure and influences, and have indeed risen above it all, in spite of it all.
Not all of us seem to realize just how much we have grown over a period of time, until we see it in writing, wouldn't you agree? We tend to gloss over some facts in our mind, and when we see the detailed recounting, we are surprised. The trail of footsteps behind us might meander a bit, but there is progress overall.
Here's to the coming year, with yet more positive growth, more insight [no matter how painful and uncomfortable], more healing.

Happy New Year!
Yes, we have come a long way, baby. Quite remarkable considering all the
baggage that accompanies us. Thank you for your warm response. We need
affirmations & "feel good" comments in conjunction with the "helpful"
WE & US, cuz with any illness or interaction, there is reciprocal movement.

"Perspective"–my word of the year. Kind of cool in combination with
"Gaslighting:" Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year.
