Lots of folks find the holiday season stressful. Being polite to folks you may not like. Dealing with family members who you wish weren’t related to you. Finding presents for people who have everything, or who refuse to to tell you what they want. Avoiding putting putting back on all that weight you managed to lose. Unrelenting Christmas music in every store. And, of course, “Little Drummer Boy.”
Hang in there, it will pass.
Then you can feel guilty because you don’t enjoy the holiday season, and let another one slip away.
