Re: The I Have No Family or Friends For the Holidays Thread
I have been on both sides of the situation. Now that i'm divorced, I can honestly say I prefer to just do what I want instead of dealing with "in laws" and other crappy obligatory situations.

I have my daughter until 4, at which point she does to her mother, and they will go to Thanksgiving with the entire family. I will be home alone to relax.

Way better.
 Quoting: ISO


This is where I am at, and I agree. My 4 kids are grown now, one lives out of state and this is the year the rest go to the ex's parents (my former in-laws). No more stressing out about when to get ready, whether or not everything will be ready in time, etc etc. I texted them all Happy Thanksgiving, and I'm going over to a friend and his wife's for a quiet meal. I used to think I would bum out around the holidays, but have gotten much more comfortable with not being under any stress to do a bunch of crap.

OP if you want company join an online dating service. Yeah there are some crazies to weed through but it's a numbers game. You'll find somebody if you keep at it.

Happy Holidays!

Don't the Holidays always the possibility for the opposite , dark reflection of the positive side of them?

For instance, Valentines Day - man I've had some GREAT ones, and some TERRIBLE ones.

Christmas - in my younger days , growing up, I had magical christmas. Nowadays, its a sad remember of what things have become.

Halloween - I remember trick or treating, and LOVED it growing up. Eventually, it turned into AWESOME halloween parties. Then it just became another day. This year, I took my 2 year old (soon to be3) trick or treating for the first time, and it was GREAT.


Thanksgiving - Awesome that it brings your whole family together, also very miserable, since it brings your whole family together, LOL. Sad too if you don't have anyone.




Get what I'm saying? The holidays definitely bring out the emotions, for good or bad, that is for sure.

Another announcement towards pussifying America. It is your decision and nobody cares. I can't stand losers that try to extrapolate pity from strangers. If it is true, then quit making poor decisions in life, over and over and over again. Loser.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4804472

Why don't you do everyone a favor and go to H#@*! you piece of turkey poop. Honestly, people like you should never breed.

Happy Thanksgiving, OP. It doesn't matter how many or how few people you have around you...you are thought of, especially today, hon. Enjoy peace and quiet. It's far better than having parents who don't talk to you and a mother in law who hates you. God Bless You.

Ive debated this,it is no knee jerk reaction.

Back in the day i was a big guy yah know,i sold drugs made over 200k a week.
I was never a rat but i went away for 12 years and my life outside i cannot cope,ive never taken a life nor will i,but i cannot go on,so this Cat will bow out.

Ive done some wrong things in this life,i admit that,i hope forgiveness.

God bless and good bye.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14102282


NO! No bowing out, and, no saying good byes!

Only those who have fallen low KNOW what life is truly all about. Don't beat yourself up over old bad choices. You're a survivor now, with much better knowledge than most people.

Just look ahead, and stop worrying about 'forgiveness.' If you knew my family -people who've never been in jail, yet have never stopped 'taking' 'judging' and sucking other's hearts dry- you just might see yourself as someone much more worthy for happiness in life.

Just start over. I have a feeling that there are people in this world who your bound to inspire...even without them knowing your background.

Smile, please. I think you are someone other people need. cool2

Re: The I Have No Family or Friends For the Holidays Thread
I am so fucking lonely.


My girlfriend of 9 years is working at the hospital today and this is my first thanksgiving alone EVER. IT SUCKS!!


My family is too fractured to enjoy their company so i decided to just watch the games alone and maybe head over and wait in line for a black friday gift.




Happy holidays GLP and lets have a great christmas season. Remember to tell those you care about this season that YOU LOVE THEM!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24184617


the worst thing about holidays with family, is having to have the right holiday 'spirit' for the occasion. If you've ever read those horrendous accounts of halloween customs' origins ,eg., jack o'lantern derived from burning a container of human fat, token of having given someone in your household to be sacrificed the year before and therefore exempted this year.[?] [close enough I think, if I'm not remembering exactly what I read.]
Then we have ruts, yearly gatherings of herds of animals to determine breeding fitness by physical competitions and other comparisons.
Bible says [I feel free to quote it now to balance out never having dreamt of doing such a thing for most of my life] people alienated from God can behave "animalistic"-ally.
So maybe these holidays, these obligatory gatherings have something of the rut about them, but given example in 1st paragraph: TALK ABOUT "SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST"!

If you're meeting to measure yourselves against one another, this might give occasion for forced smiles and forced bonhomie to beef up your presentation of fitness-as- appropriateness to the special day. Isn't 'fake' what makes us dread these things? And 'fake' in honor of what? -Honoring something at best pointless, at worst, evil.
All over the world, the holidays basically happen at the same times. they have universal ancient pagan origins that often involved human sacrifices. Discerning the true nature of the 'holiday spirit' while having to celibrate it?
We may be lucky families are more fractured and don't feel they owe as much to one another as before. More individual free will choices possible,not just slaving for 'tradition'.

I just spent the last 3 hours talking a co-worker who is about to get fired down...don't know if I can take any more

look... the reason you have no family is that either u or they or some combination of is toxic to one another..if you've made that break, you are in in a better place.

and friends..friends come and go

this holiday false religion lie shit is just that... a lie

u have time..you will have family and friends

this is just a stage that u must evolve through

relish in this!

you will appreciate the life that you have coming to you that much more

this is a wondrous time

you are on the crest of a wave

as the pendulum swings

a new life awaits

embrace it with open arms

and please dont feel alone

Home , alone. Sick with the flu. I do this a lot for Thanksgiving. I think it is phycosomatic, so I don't have to put up with my inlaws, they suck. Am loving being alone, the peace and quiet and not having to listen to their boring dribble, such a gift. OP find someone special soon.

Spent a lot of holidays alone. Some of the best times of my life. Went to all the places people go who are alone on the holidays. Bars, restaurants, churches. Met so many good wonderful people. Theres reslly no need to be alone if you dont want to be. If your alone revel in it, dont wallow.

Re: The I Have No Family or Friends For the Holidays Thread
Quit all the snivelling................ family functions are usually just a pain in the ass anyways. Sit around and pretend you are having fun, but counting the minutes until you can make your escape. So many people go to these family functions as it is expected and they act like it is a great thing because they have been brought up to believe they are special times with significant meaning.

I mean really.......... another Norman Rockwell moment. You see these perfect family gatherings depicted in paintings and on TV. In real life, when you get to know other people you find out they are just people and the families are far from perfect. Half of them hate going to the family functions, their sister is a hooker and their cousin is a meth head. Mommy and Daddy have stuck together through the years for the sake of the children, but don't really like each other any more yet are afraid to call it quits after so many decades of being married because they are afraid of the unknown.

Seriously, you want some meaningful companionship, get a dog. They don't complain, are always happy to see you AND no hidden agendas.

That's the problem with people who complain about not having family or friends - they think they're nothing without people around them and that they should be sad or depressed . . .

It's quite LIBERATING if you can get away from toxic "family" and "friends" and the best thing to do is use it your advantage . . . get to know yourself better, give your love and attention to a sweet creature, draw, paint, write, read, learn, evolve, dance, sing, appreciate nature!!!!!!
