The Lessons from 2023

A Sexual Libra
7 min readJan 4, 2024

What a shit year 2023 was. Like, dumpster fire from hell.

I don’t need to drone on about the specific trees. It was just a deadly forest of a year from literal start to finish. As I reflect, the lessons I needed to learn are rising to the top and I’m internalizing them and putting them into practice. Present tense: Not that I will, but I am.

In 2024, I’m Trusting My Intuition — No Matter How Much I Love You
In 2023, I was surrounded by people who refused to let me into what was actually going on. Whether through malicious intent or just a lack of their own self-awareness, I spent the last year and a half having to figure out what I wasn’t being told. And, while that experience holds other lessons about where I’m weak, it proved where I’m a god damned superhuman. My intuition is strong af and, while I may not accurately understand every detail of every tree, I will accurately see the forest. You aren’t hiding shit from me.

I’m really good at seeing what others don’t want me to see — I see intents, I see motivations and I ‘hear’ them louder than words and I hear the words that aren’t said. So, while the above meme seems like wisdom to some, if you want me in your life, make this meme your practice instead:

Because, in 2023, I learned to give the result to people who avoided honest, vulnerable transparency with me. And, in 2024, I’m being merciless about it. I do not care what the reasons for privacy are, if you feel you have to be so what you’re doing won’t get ruined by me, you’re not for me and I’m not for you. Period. If you need the space to get strong and confident in your choices before opening them up to me — believe me, I’ll give it. Just ask the people who used to be in my life. That’s me walking away from what isn’t healthy for me.
