Christmas hugs thread

*BananaMonkey**BananaMonkey* Lyrical PosterPosts: 4,734 Supreme Poster


Hey everyone :heart:

Christmas time can be a difficult time for people, so here at The Mix we are here for you if you need to chat about anything or get any support. So I thought it would be nice to start a thread where we can talk or just offer hugs, around the Christmas period and the run up to Christmas. 

Your not alone, we are here for you :heart:

Also how cute is the picture, not going to lie, I'm a big kid at heart and love frozen :heart: :wink:  


" And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
" So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    Aw, well we are here for you.

    I feel the same, I always miss my Nanna, and more so at Christmas because she loved Christmas, I used to love seeing her smile, I miss her smile. I miss her in general.

    But this thread isn't about me, I didn't make it to get support for myself, but I just hope your okay Millie, 

    We are here :heart:

    Wish my sister would shut the fuck up about christmas presents. I dont give a fuck. Omg. Ill just get on the 24 th lol why so stressy. Just feel like is irrating my brain and feel like hitting my head 
    There is some comfort in what we know. Even if that is deep in depression. I think i now more understand the quote of -life starts outside of your comfort zone.

    Sending hugs to all those who may need them right now, 

    Sorry I've been a bit quiet on here the past few days, been working and since I work 12 hour days it's quite difficult to check in on the boards, but I am off work now til Wednesday so I should be around more.

    Hate work as it is. But working in primark near Christmas on a Saturday. Like that is hell and no space to breath. I really don’t wanna go tomorrow it’s still busy on sundays and everyday in there and literally I literally don’t get the point in me being there when people just mess up things i fold about 5 mins later. Literally like makes me wanna cry sometimes.

    hugs, sorry to hear your struggling with work. 

    if it helps, I notice people doing that in shops and not putting things back nicely so I will put things back nicely if I notice them doing it, I hear your frustrations though.

    Yeah that sucks Shaunie, I always have to prepare before walking into a primark so I can imagine.

    I always refold after I don't get people with that like you don't have to do it neatly just fold it after you touch it gahh!

    Stay strong xo and if you need to take the day off then that's okay 💕

    Christmas is eating all my money I saved up. I also don't want to celebrate Christmas because this is the 2nd year anniversary my nan lost her fight with Alzheimers
