It’s the worst time of the year.
Christmas can be such a joyous and merry holiday. The decorations, music, and the general holiday spirit can make your heart feel full and happy.
Although Christmas can be a lovely time, it can also be a lonely and difficult time for some people. There are people that just don’t connect with Christmas and simply just can’t enjoy it.
The holidays can bring up a lot of emotions for people and it can feel isolating to witness others embracing the Christmas spirit when you feel like you can’t. Some people can’t travel to see their families on Christmas and some people also don’t have a family to spend the holiday with.
The whole point of Christmas isn’t to just celebrate it. Instead, Christmas is a gentle reminder for people to be empathetic, giving, and caring to others. If someone hates Christmas, we should not try to force Christmas on them or judge them for not liking it. We never know what people are going through but we can always be there for support and affirm that their feelings are valid.
If you hate Christmas, then you have every right to. The holidays can be lonely and no one if forcing you to embrace it.
The great thing about holidays is that you can make them your own because there is no “right way” to celebrate Christmas. The most important thing is that you take care of yourself and do what is best for your mental health. If you think it is best for you to just ignore the holiday and treat it like any other day, then do it! If you want to spend Christmas with friends instead of family, then do it, because friends can be family too. Feel your feelings and be thoughtful of others.
