Disclaimer: I don’t want this to come across as a “poor me” post. This is just my opinion (unpopular or not) about something that people don’t really seem to talk about all that much, and a kind of therapy for me. The older I get, the more silly it seems to me that there are things that people don’t talk about that everybody goes through in some way or another. What’s a blog if not a vehicle to share your own opinions?
I don’t like the holidays, especially Christmas.
I don’t think that I’m cynical. Growing up my parents didn’t always get along, but they tried their hardest to make sure that I had a good childhood to the best of their ability. Also, I don’t ever remember talking to anybody about my grandfather getting sick, or the trauma of the cancer process.
