This time of year has been difficult for 20 years. It’s become worse but never better.
Christmas is uncomfortable and a downer. The socialization I’m expected to do is draining not recharging. I think more than usual about those I have lost.
Financial hardships rear their heads, and I have to give up what little dreams I have for myself, be that money for retirement, trying to save for my business, vacation time I needed to pull out to pay taxes.
I pretty much wish the year skipped from November to March.
