Bad things happen to me every year but so do good things and the bad does not outweigh the good in those large chunks of time. It would be much more likely for me to have a bad week or maybe even a bad month like when my dad was first diagnosed with dementia or when my mom almost severed her foot and required multiple surgeries and a lot of assistance with her daily activities.
I refuse to let an entire year go bad. That would be depressing and then I'd get angry and then I'd have to do something about it all. Doing something about it would make me happy and then life would be good again.
