Emotional pain: How do the lonely celebrate Christmas?

Right now, I am intensely avoiding all conversations that involve talking about family…

Each time my mind wants to rest on what I don’t have, I shut it down. Colleagues going to visit their elderly parents, buying presents etc etc. Love being reciprocated.

I can feel my anxiety rising and along with it memories of the hurt, the rejection, the abuse, abandonment and currant denial of all.

I am reaching for the void, that place of ‘nothingness’. That place where words don’t hurt and sticks and stones lie on the forest floor and not poised to break my bones.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year… for whom?

    1. I am glad you are able to relate ‘comfortableynumbandalive’. I often wonder why other people can’t accept that not everyone comes from a loving family. And to accept those who are not fortunate to have a soft place to fall. Make sure you do what makes you happy during this season, regardless of what others think. Make a stand for authentic you. ☺
