Re: The I Have No Family or Friends For the Holidays Thread
Just got back from a moto-trip from Bloomington CA to Crestline CA, in the mountains north of here. Found a very small, quaint cafe. Sweetest, cutest waitress on the planet sold me a home-made turkey dinner with ALL the trimmings for $8.95!!!!! Time-warp anyone??? It was absolutely delicious! I have never had a better Thanksgiving meal and I'm 63. Looked to me her Mom was running the small kitchen. I think it's called The Crestline Cafe but I'm not sure. Bill caame to $11.88, I left a $10 tip.

Sure beat sitting around here crying, like I was this morning.

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. My family is scattered across the planet. Sucks.

Re: The I Have No Family or Friends For the Holidays Thread
Yeah I've spent it alone too by choice ... It's been that way for years now. I make the most of it and cook a big meal, have wine, brownies, anything I want. I've had a lot of loved ones in the past and the personal relationships are not all they're cracked up to be. We think everything outside of us must be better if we feel flat inside. Well I tell you it's a lot of BS dealing with other people and special relationships. All the obligation, guilt, politeness(politics), familiarity(family), ... they tend to kill a tender heart with a smile and call it love when it's just possessiveness. If people can't control you then the love goes out the door. So friendship can be better than family but good friends are few and far between. Family will pull you close with their ego as if to push you away from their spirit, it seams.
I had a threshold spiritual experience when I was 20, now I'm 47 ... since then while at times I have been alone I have never felt lonely. I am conscious of the fact that I am literally surrounded by beings at all times. But that's just me. I spent a lot of the first half of my life addicted to people and relationships and seeing myself in their eyes ... Now it's just the opposite ... I surprise myself at how monastic I am, at how entertained I can be just sitting quietly in a chair for hours on end with nothing going on around me. It has taken years to arrive here and I have gone a spirit journey from one end to the other.
OP ... you think the grass is always greener on the other side ... it is an illusion ... the ego forms relationships out of nervousness and deep fear and seeks other egos to reinforce itself. They aren't real ... but sometimes you have to read a book just to find out that it has nothing to say.

This whole thread is a loserfest. Eating Doritos on Tday explains your decision making abilities, which is why you will always be alone unless you drastically change something. The losers that support you to encourage you are probably int he same IQ range.

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

u are never alone

you have a valid point.


But, does it make you feel better to kick this poor slob while they are down?

It's ok if it does. I kinda feel the same way.

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.

Wow. You're so hardcore and strong with your vitriolic insults.

Ironically, it's actual losers that feel the need to kick people when they're down. It's a sign of weakness.

...


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!

50, I'm always surprized to see people of your age on such forums. don't get it wrong, it's just that people like you don't stay on forums in romania. their loss?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15985752


So is 50 your age or your guess of my age? I'm 53 but look and feel 35. Just got home from a GREAT Thanksgiving at my friend's house. Life is what you make it.

The tough part OP...is the big build up to "the day" everyone makes a big deal about. Calender countdown...everyone asking what you'll be doing that day...facebook pics of their cooked turkey's...blah blah....it's just a dinner. I'm thankful all year long and don't need a day to remind me how fortunate I am. But I'm always glad when the holidays are over. What's funny is my friends with family always tell me they envy my spending it alone.
