Struggling

Why does “the holiday season” fill me with so many negative emotions?  I remember a time when Christmas inspired hope, and joy, and happiness in my heart.  It wasn’t that long ago.  These days, it seems more a reminder of all the blessings I have squandered, and of all the things that shall never be again.

I don’t know what to do with those feelings.

Is it just me?  Or does Christmas somehow seem less happy these days?

  2. I don't know if it is less happy, but I struggle with Christmas every year. I've begun to think that it is because it completely removes me from my routines, and requires a great deal of planning and expense and decisions, none of which I like much.

    So, it's not just you.
