Well..thank goodness Christmas is OVER.
I cannot tell you how much better I am starting to feel once the mandatory holidays are over being crammed down my throat.
It's like a weight lifting off my shoulders.
But here's the deal:
I have decided that this is the last time I am going to let the holidays bother me this much.
I can't do anything about the Seasonal Affective Disorder.
It comes around every year totally predictably and I turn into a mean, cranky zombie.
But the holidays are something I CAN do something about.
And just like staying angry or holding a grudge...it is just too mentally, emotionally and phyically exhausting to continue on a regular basis.
I don't want to do it anymore.
So this is it.
I have decided to stop expending energy complaining about how much I hate the holidays.
I just don't care any more and it takes too much out of me to fight it.
I can't do anything about it.
That's the thing about hitting your head against a brick wall.
It feels so good when you finally stop.
