As I listen to my roommates talk about their families coming down to Disney for Christmas like it is not a big deal, my heart keeps sinking. Yes, I am happy for them. At the same time, it stings.
Being alone for Christmas, and working it, will be so sad. I am excited to Skype my family, but that is not the same.
How do you manage being alone for the holidays? What can I do to ease this pain? How do I listen to this planning without going crazy hearing about other families?
