for falling into the Christmas trap AGAIN.

my upbringing was rubbish and Christmas was particularly unpleasant. For years I have fought against this and tried to do a decent job.

Yet again I now feel tired, broke,fat and wondering what the point of it is.

What have you planned for 2017? Xxx

Oh sweetheart. I am not very good at advice but please try and be kind to yourself. Focus on self care and try to only do what makes you happy for the next few days. See friends or hibernate - whatever feels right. You deserve to take it easy on yourself flowers x

We live and learn. Don't beat yourself up. Treat yourself if only for half an hour at some point and move on. It's one day.

I agree and sympathise!
Thankfully it's over now.
I mostly do Christmas for my dc. I hate the excess of it.

I meant I agree... what's the point of it all?

Did your family have a good Christmas? I'm sure you did a great job even if you're not feeling it.

I am exactly the same smile
I overspend and every year I promise my partner I won't go mad and I do.
I run around and cook and clean for loads.... super martyr. Desperate for the perfect Christmas as my parents were awful.
I m seriously ill as well and should be resting and never do.
No helping some people..... sending empathetic hugs
