    This is not how I want to live.

    I'm tired of waking up alone on Christmas Day and every day in between. I thought I was a good person. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this loneliness.

    It's been my first Christmas in care this year.

    I think I felt quite lonely once all my carers family were round, because well I'm not really apart of the family. Christmas is supposed to be, what I think, 'family' time. It's like I didn't know where to turn to or who to talk to. I'd rather of been on my own, I don't know...

    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...
