**This comic is for those of you who feel like Christmas is gonna suck this year due to personal circumstances. I know what you’re going through. If I could personally go to your place and sip hot choco with you under the stars I would, but alas, this comic is all I can offer. I hope it will suffice to make your Christmas bearable.**
Ever since I was a kid, I always felt a disconnect with the happy Christmas atmosphere, because a part of me is trying so hard to compare my current situation with other people’s picture perfect holidays. We ate simple meals and shared simple gifts, I wanted huge feasts and expensive gifts.
This year however, I realized that no matter what your situation is, you can enjoy Christmas. You can decide to be kind to yourself, stop comparing and allow you to just enjoy whatever you have right now. Everybody deserves to be happy on Christmas day. Another year has almost passed and you’re here, still alive, with great lessons learned. You did a great job, give yourself a pat on the back for toughing it out.
Smile. Next Christmas will be much better I assure you.
