One of the things that bothers me most about this time of year and
about this prison that we call 'reality'. Is seeing people in pain, of any description.

This time of the year is particularly hard on people, especially those who do not have family or friends that can be around them.

Especially when everywhere you look or hear the media in every form, is shouting out how this is a time for family and friends - a time to spend all your money and put yourself in debt, because you should - after all it is Christmas!

Christmas can be a particularly hard and sad time for them. It exacerbates their feelings of loneliness, or their struggles with their health, or their loss of loved ones.

So my heart goes out to them all the more at this time when they are acutely aware of what they do not have in their lives.

Much love to you all

My wife died about six years ago. Christmas is still a very hard time for me. I don't put up any Christmas stuff. I try to avoid all things Christmas. My wife really enjoyed this time of year. Now it just makes me sad.

I read someplace that from just before Thanksgiving until just after New Years there is an increase in deaths especially in elderly people.
Not sure if its true but maybe they just feel like they have no reason to live any longer.Loneliness is so much worse during holiday times.

I am sorry to hear that.It can be overwhelming for sure.
But since she enjoyed it so much I dont think she would want you to be down during a time she was so happy about.Maybe just get you a little tiny tree or some candles or something for her.

Aw I am truly sorry to hear of your loss IndianDave. hugs

I am sorry that this time of year causes you to feel the loss more keenly as well.

I am sending you some energy to help you through should you wish. Please feel free to take what you need.

Much love to you.

yes it is. Especially hard on the elderly, but it is hard on anyone in those situations.

As a nurse we saw an increase in the number of illnesses amongst those who lived by themselves without any social support network around them. It is heartbreaking.

You know, the candle is not a bad idea Indian Dave.

You could make it a wee honouring ceremony for your wife.

I light this in remembrance of the love you brought into my life. I love you and I miss you... (or whatever words you chose to use, whatever comes from your heart)

Thanks so much for posting this. It is exactly what I am going thru.
I am sitting here in tears now. Partly because the depression is so heavy on me now and partly because you are so kind and thoughtful and that gives me hope.

I am so sorry hugs

Depression is like being wrapped in a wet gray blanket that you simply cannot see out of. It is a very difficult thing to deal with. At any time of the year.

I have sent you some energy to help sustain you if you wish it. hugs

People like you are why I haven't abandoned this site yet. A very thoughtful and kind message.

Not many people during this time of year stop to think of those who are hurting because they're too busy concerned with their own jolliness and looking forward to the material items they'll be getting from others.

I'm with you, my heart goes out to all who may be suffering. May they find a smile. And if The Great Spirit must take my smiles to give it to them I pray it be so.

I just read the thread about the man and child. I do not know the desperation that drove him to commit such an act...

But for those of you who are alone, battling depression or other inner demons.. Please know you are NOT alone and there are people out there who do care.

There is always someone who will help.

HOPE


Hold On Pain Ends.


Much love to you hugs
