Start over in the new year. Also, start over at any other time during the rest of the year, whenever you want, as often as you like. Time is an illusion anyway.
I cannot assure you that things will get better in the ’20s. I can’t assure you that they’ll get worse, either. What I can absolutely guarantee is that things are going to keep getting weirder and weirder. At this point in time the only reliable pattern is the disintegration of patterns.

“Why do those people hate us?”
“We destroyed their country.”
“We should leave the Middle East then.”
“What about it?”
“Those other countries hate it.”
“It destroyed the country it was built on top of.”
