The countdown to my 26th year started when the year turned 2022. I only say this because my birthday is this month and, while I don’t worry about getting older, I felt this dread that I’m turning 26 when New Year’s Eve came
I think I dread this day for two reasons:
1. The last two years were celebrated differently and similar to Christmas and New Year’s, the last two years have been the best so far. Nevertheless, I look forward to what’s going to be unveiled on that day.
2. Believe it or not, I’m scared to know.
If can spend all of my birthday candles in advance, I would wish for time to speed up so that I can get to the point where I’m not carrying a broken heart anymore.
