X- axis date sorting

Hello I currently have a column with dates corresponding to the first day of the week. This numbers might be repeated as there are multiple orders per week. When I try to show this dates in a graph, however, the sort uses this order and I can't find a way to change it to actually chronological.

I'd like to see Oct ´22 - Nov '22 - Dec '22 - Jan '23. So pretty much what it is right now but with january last.

I even tried changing the dats to whole numbers and then sorting, same thing happened, just puts january first as if the year didn't matter.

Can anyone offer some advice please? Thanks

I actually just had to sort that date by another column. I created a column with the same date as a number and just sorted by htat one

To clarify I don't really care if the data has to be Date or Text type, it currently is date but that can be changed.
And I can´t do a sort by column on an auxiliary column because if they drill down the data that method would break, as not every item appears every week.
