Reading time: 2 protocol
Can you be grateful that we made it out of 2020 alive and still moan around 2021?
Is it too early Are we ungrateful?
At least we’re not Elon Musk, who lost $ 4.6 billion the other day when Tesla shares were depreciated a little, ouch! Imagine having so much to lose in the first place, but going from the richest man in the world to the second richest man must be difficult. I suppose he’ll be laughing at us from his castle on Mars with his robot butler in the years to come and by then have forgotten everything.
As for the rest of us regular Joes, the past few weeks have been tough. It was hard to get motivated and to stay motivated around 2021, vaccines or no vaccines. The world powers America, Russia and China continue their political games on the global stage while they are all a hot mess at home. It’s hard to get other nations to listen to you when your own people don’t. Even the lure of “vaccines for collaboration” has lost some of its luster.
“These hard working people deserve all the help they can get.”
At home, vaccines have been introduced for both presidents and doctors (but not for ex-presidents). This promises an additional layer of protection for the front line workers who have put their lives on the line for us. This is actually something to get upset about. These hard working people deserve all the help they can get. We can focus on such good news.
However, there is a “division” between the expectation of how 2021 would solve everyone’s problems and the fact that 2021 will not be a cake run. This is the common struggle between expectation and reality. We’ll go into that challenge in more detail in this issue in relation to debt counseling – the unrealistic expectations some people have of debt review compared to the realities of the process. Having realistic expectations can help people make good decisions and face the challenges that lie ahead. We hope you enjoy the news, reviews, tips and interviews in this issue, which are designed to both entertain and inform you.
“Yeah, I think we can take a moment or two to feel a little bit sorry for ourselves that times in 2021 aren’t any easier.”
So, yeah, I think we can take a moment or two to feel a little sorry for the fact that times in 2021 aren’t any easier. We cannot all flee to another planet to escape our problems.
Even now, however, we can focus on focusing on the more positive things around us and working on finding joy in our daily activities. This may be our reality, and for those who adhere to the debt review process, their hopeful expectation of eventually getting out of debt will soon be met by the reality of being completely debt free.
