This is one big pity-party thread, times are hard, so stop complaining. Few people in my family could afford gifts, I was thankful just to be alive and well and to get to spend another Christmas with my family.

Wow to be honest I feel bad for you. I feel a lot of siblings take there brothers/sister kindness for granted and they often priorities friends who they often lose contact with in a year anyway and brothers and sister are for life so they should be treated better.

Well that's stupid. It's not Mother's day, and you're only 14. Unless you got a job (and she couldn't afford to get you a gift, or she got you a gift) and are making money, that's an irrational expectation. When I was your age and didn't have cash to give gifts (sometimes I did, I babysat), I did special chores for my parents as a surprise. (clean/organize garage or kitchen, etc.)

Only thing that brought Christmas down was having to spend a few hours in the hospital the day before Christmas eve. Christmas itself was great. We had awesome food great presents and lots of laughter.

I understand this I'm not looking for pity just merely venting my frustration where it will do no harm. My disappointment isn't about material objects I just feel a bit alone right now because it feels like people just stopped thinking about me.

I got to see my family devolve into degenerates via everyone's favorite social media site, FB, so it was a monumental disappointment and ranks as one of, if not the worst Christmas I've had.

My sister has removed all evidence, but you can't unread that stuff...


I know how that goes. As a result I "unfriended" one sister, and blocked the other from my news feed (she's still friended). I check up on her when I'm bored or nosy. Thank God my parents are tech ignoramuses (mom doesn't even know how to turn on a computer), if they weren't, I either wouldn't "friend" them or be on FB at all.

I've been ill the past week due to kidney issues, even being in the ER on Christmas Eve, but I still managed to have a good Christmas so I wasn't unhappy. I got to have some good conversation with family members, spend time with my grandmother, and enjoy a nice dinner. No complaints. I had many Christmas's in the military where I spent the day alone. That's the worst. It's easy for people to take their family for granted when they're always around them.

It was a boring day that didn't even feel like a holiday.
Christmas hasn't felt the same for me now that I'm older.

Yes I guess that's true it would be far worse without them I'm glad to have them around.

I know what you are talking about. I used to fall into that same trap every holiday expecting all the love, laughter, and camaraderie that is pushed on us (how they say it should be/what we should expect) by the media. It's all a bunch of fake, unrealistic, TV land, Hallmark holiday crap. I'm living in reality now with realistic (or no) expectations. Frankly, I expect the worst & hope for the best. As a result, I no longer get disappointed/bummed about holidays (expectations not met) anymore, but the downside is I no longer enjoy it or look forward to it either. (maybe I dread it) This year I came REALLY close to not celebrating at all and hiding/avoiding everyone, but at the last minute I bought a few gifts and minimally decorated.....It all just felt like I was just going through the motions....I'll probably be worse next year.

Nah it was pretty good, only disappointment was that my Sword Art Online v1 collectors box present got lost in the mail so we had to order another.. On the other hand, I'll end up with two and I can sell the first one for profit

Yes, once again my wish to Santa Claus has gone unanswered. All I want is less hate and more understanding. Damn, humans.

I should do some blocking after that fiasco. Every name in the book was thrown out there, it was suggested that the females involved enjoyed the company of men if you get my drift, everyone tossing out the good ole "you call yourself a Christian and say things like this", and at one point they were evening threatening violence and talking about how it'd be nothing to drive down there to settle things. Not that this kind of behavior is acceptable any day, but on Christmas day no less.

Definitely not the kind of thing I thought I'd ever see from my side of the family (the other side that instigated it has notoriously been known to do this kind of thing however).

Most people I know always ask me why I never post things on FB, or at least why I do it very seldomly, and then I remembered why last night lol.

Anywho, forgive the rant.
