    I Just Don't Give A Damn Any More....

    This is the worst it's ever been, the most extreme form of rejection , or I think a better word is just 'indifference' to the entire hoopla :P...What does Christmas and Channukah mean to me? For those of you unfamiliar, Channukah is the Jewish festival of Lights, it happens each...

    Honestly... The week,

    when people should be nice to each other... So we are allowed to be mean for the rest of year? Because that's what the most of the people do. And it's even worse. It triggers the worst things in people. My strongest memory about Christmas is my dad beating me up on Christmas...

    Christmas Truth

    Christmas is for people who have been successful in conventional terms, which is those who've managed to form nuclear families and have kids. I love kids, but walking away from an engagement to someone who turned highly abusive a few years ago, I've accepted that I may never be...

    Christmas is usually my least favourite time of

    year. This year it will be worse as my beautiful little boy is away from home. I don't have any family and I am dreading spending it alone. The only comfort I have is that I am getting better and as long as I do my baby will be returned to me. I thought I had had bad things...

    Why Christmas Has Faded Away..

    I think it's a amalgamation of things, firstly I think we all as children look at Christmas as a magical time of the year filled with gifts of the things we've been wanting year round. Remember our parents intimidating us with "If your not good Santa isn't going to bring you any...

    Not Excited About Being Home For So Long

    I haven't finished shopping and have no money and will feel guilty when my family buys me gifts and I can't return the favor. In general, though, I'm just not looking forward to spending two weeks at home, with my parents, in the house I lived in during high school. ...

    Forever Alone

    These past two years have done nothing but wreak havoc on my life. About two years ago my "family" decided to buy a house, to which my brother and I (whom I hate) showed reluctance. My parents simply replied with, "Things will get better." They haven't. Last year nearly brought...
