I Feel Lonely At Christmas

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 121 People

    Haven't had a real Christmas in a long time.

    In fact the last real Christmas i had was in 2006, when i went on leave to my buddies house and spent Christmas with his family. i feel so alone. Sitting in a Starbucks right now. At least the people working right now are nice

    This is not how I want to live.

    Sigh...

    Something about the Christmas holidays that I love so much. The snowy days, the decorations, wrapping presents, Christmas carols, the television specials. But I always end up with a feeling of being broken hearted. Like so many other things, I build it up in my head, just to get...
