dealing with ignorance
yeah ihad to deal with this over the holidays. i wore a hat though
just ignore, and go off in your own world a couple days a year. ive been doing it since a kid when it comes to my family so why should it be different now? apparently your family is judgmental and that didnt just come about when your dread journey started. im sure youve been listening to it forever. youve had to figure out a way to tune them out by now.
then step 2- vent! and you got that down so u should be okay. its only a couple days a year u gatta deal with it.
ummm what works for me: i smoke before i get there try not to arrive too much before dinner starts, then stuff my face with food until i get tired so then i drowsily watch everyone open presents and listen to their stupid pointless banter. then i take a nap and think of how much worse christmas could be and it makes me feel better.
