It’s ONE DAY!
Literally ONE. Consumerism pushes all these expectations and pressure on everyone to be grandeur, to be the perfect host with a feast, spectacular presents & oodles of alcohol! Really Christmas is how YOU want it. This is the first year I’ve dreaded Christmas, truly. I do not feel festive, I felt an anxiety ridden mess and it wasn’t until I had given myself a good talking to that I felt better.
If people don’t like how you do Christmas well f*ck em!
I’m not spending all day in the kitchen this year, I’m not getting dolled up, nor stressing that the presents I’ve gifted are good enough it’s like it or lump it. I really hope you can find peace with it like I have. Be selfish! And have a good one! Xx
