Like the song says, ” … you better not cry.” In a perfect world, I would take my own advise. Earlier this month I wrote about all sorts of great ways to stay sane during the holiday season. I also said that there was no such thing as a perfect Christmas, a perfect family … blah, blah, blah.
And it makes sense. On paper.
So, of course I was caught off guard when I had my Annual Christmas Meltdown the other day. And it was a beauty.
Drama. Tears. Angst. Unrequited crap.
How does an otherwise relatively normal person lose their mind, freak out over all things related to the holidays and have the expectations of a four-year-old during the Christmas season?
You tell me.
At least this tantrum lasted a short time. And I’m so over it now.
My inner four-year-old is still there, but I gave her some chocolate so hopefully she’ll shut up and behave.
Eating chocolate (in moderation) will take your mind off just about anything that is unpleasant or frustrating about the Christmas season. Plus it’s a lot less expensive than therapy or SSRI’s.
