I tend to go into a depression around Christmas time and i don’t think I am alone.
I believe the cause of this is that everyone is too busy to service relationships and, to me, that is the meaning of Christmas. In other words, I get lonely! I miss the chit chat and the exchange of the mundane. Christmas has become too economically important with businesses trying to bump up that fourth quarter. Nothing gets done or moves forward and everything gets put off until “After the holidays” which means the middle of January!
We work hard and save our money all year long only to empty our bank accounts during the holidays. Or even worse, go into debt!
I know that I am “Tilling at windmills” and that my writing this will not change anything. But, this is the feeling that I will not come out of this funk until it is over.
I want people to be merry during this season, not greedy and competitive! Yes, I am dreaming!
