Christmas hugs thread (2019)

*BananaMonkey**BananaMonkey* Lyrical PosterPosts: 5,166 The Mix Elder


Hey folks, with Christmas just around the corner, 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 a nice idea to start a thread where people can chat about things or even just offer some hugs. 

You are not alone and we are here for you :heart:

Sending hugs :heart:
" 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 "

    I really struggle with Christmas and I'm already feeling really anxious. My nan passed away around Christmas time and ever since, it feels difficult

    We are here for you, dealing with grief can be hard over the festive period,

    I can relate. I lost my Nanna 3 months before Christmas, and it's her birthday in December. Your not alone. Sending lots of hugs to you :heart:

    Is there a new year thread? 

    My family always talk about it being new year.  But then both of my sisters started their new jobs in the new year and i still havent got a job and they have said a few times now that they working there for a year and i feel i should of got a job this year. And they reflect a lot and its overwhelming

    But i mean i did do my peer support training which was so hard to get onto and i completed allll of it and was intense and that stays with me. For when ever jobs come out. So i guess thats really good

    I don't think there's a new year thread yet Shaunie but this would be helpful as new year is going to be harder for me than Christmas will be.

    Christmas is always hard for me as Christmas was always something my nana used to do special things with us and ever since she passed away 3 years ago Christmas hasn’t been the same since :(

    I struggle at Christmas as well. None of you are ever alone. You are never alone. These are the things I struggle with:

    1. My parents arguing
    2. Food
    3. I usually get to see my aunt and cousin but haven't been able to since Christmas 2016. I miss them a lot.
    4. Out of all my siblings I only get to see 2 of them.
    5. I feel bad that one of my friends doesn't even spend Christmas with her family. She is in care.
    I have endured pain and loss. I have felt broken. I have known hardship, and I have felt lost and alone.

    But here I stand, trying to move forward, one day at a time. I will remember the lessons in my life because they are making me who I am. Stronger.

    A warrior.

    Sending massive hugs to everyone who has commented and reading this <3

    remember to take care of yourself during the lead upto and during christmas. 

    Self care is important, and the best gift you can give yourself. Nothing is more important than your health so if you feel yourself getting overwhelmed, or stressed, its okay! get yourself a cuppa or hot chocolate and just take a minute x it will all work out okay <3

    I agree that self care is very important. To do with the hot chocolate, add whipped cream, marshmallows, cocoa powder and maybe a biscuit or crossaint.

    Oh no, doesn't sound good. Are the train services providing additional transport?
