I feel like Scrooge in “The Christmas Carol”. Well he was really really unhappy on Christmas, but I am not stingy or miserly as he was. I am just sad, very very sad. My dear diary, I am sharing my thoughts with you because everyone else seems so happy. They say, it is the Christmas spirit. So why is it that I am the most lonely and unhappy person out there.
I do not know what too do. Christmas makes me go down. The Holiday Blues perhaps. When I was a kid, Christmas was so much fun. Why can’t I enjoy Christmas as I did in the past. I just want to sleep. I think I am avoiding the situation by going to sleep. Or perhaps, I can eat my problems away with a big bowl of chocolate ice cream.
What to do with this depression?
It is cold out there. It’s gloomy and lonely too. I wish my hubby was here. He is abroad for a course. Life is incomplete without him. I feel an overwhelming sense of sadness and frustration. Like I am underwater and life is just an inch away from the surface.
