I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I’m here to share some thoughts with you. I’ve always loved this time of the year, but the older I get, the sadder I feel during these days, and I still can’t figure out why. And is it only me, or is Christmas the perfect occasion for family drama for you as well?
This year has been awful – well, not all of it, but it has been mostly awful. My family just doesn’t know how to spend time together without upsetting/disappointing each other. We are so many (almost 20 people), so I guess it’s kinda normal, but still…
I mean, I’ve just come back home after 3 months of Erasmus, and my family just keeps arguing. Moreover, my grandma broke her leg and spent Christmas in the hospital. Now she’s alright, but at the same time… at least for her, can’t we just live together happily and spend this days without fights? Is it too much to ask for?
Coming back home has been almost shocking, to be honest. The more the time I spend with my family (all of it, aunts and uncles included), the more I realize how toxic and bad it feels, and how pressured I feel, like in a costant competition, and it’s just a nocive athmosphere. It breaks my heart to say so, but that’s the truth. They’re toxic. We’re toxic. And Christmas holidays are getting worse and worse every year.
So that’s it. I just needed to share. What about you? Does Christmas bring some family drama to you as well? Feel free to comment.
