Anna Marie Tendler took a moment to reflect on this year's "change and loss".
"Over the past two years it seems that change has been synonymous with loss and collectively this loss has been unfathomable," the makeup artist began her post. "It is tempting to construct a poetic list of all we’ve watched slip through our hands, but what’s the point? We already know it and we grieve it daily."
She noted that no matter how much she might wish life would "go back to normal" she knows that "means something different now."
"I suppose, in part, this is what it means to live with depression and anxiety," the 46-year-old opened up, admitting to struggles with mental health. "That said, melancholia is oft amplified by circumstance and the circumstances of my year have been harsh and punishing."
"I find myself asking, 'when will I feel normal?'" her musing continued. "But in reality I recognize that the normal from before has expired; 'normal' is an impossibility, there is only 'new'."
"Here’s to all the things we did this year to cope and here’s to all we will do next year to heal." She ended the heartfelt message. "So long 2021. For better or worse I will carry a piece of you with me forever."
"John and Olivia are exhausted a lot of the time and aren't getting much shut-eye," the source spilled to the outlet, explaining that despite being brand new parents, they have gotten a routine down from feedings to diaper changes. The source also dished that the comic is a "very hands-on" dad and "and helping out with everything."
"Their romance was a whirlwind," the source continued, "but they're in it for the long haul."
