Advantages: None at all
Disadvantages: I am going to be alone
Now I don't know if I qualify to write about being alone at Christmas but to be trueful this is the idael place for me to tell all my friends on Dooyoo about my fears of not spending another happy christmas again after this one and why is the question well I will try to explain without seeming to self pitying.
I have a three year old daughter and I have spent every christmas of her life with her at christmas and it really is so mcuh fun having a little one around it sort of put's some real feeling of spirit and joy back into the event but unfortunatly my relationship with my partner and the mother of my child is completely beyond repair and although I will be spending christmas with them this year I am really scared of being alone next year and wonder how I am going to handle it.
I know that many men and women have been through it and they have pulled through but the thought of being alone seeing as my family are so far away and I will be losing what I thought was a happy family life will not be there with me and plans have already been made for next year that involve my partner and daughter but not me.
I have spent many christmas' alone in the past and to be quite honest it has not bothered me that much but the thought of not having the most important and loving person on earth there with me (thats my daughter of course)really not only scares me but almost brings me to tears,seeing her little face light up when the decorations come out,or when the presents are put under the tree,sharing dinner with her and what was my family around us all this is such an important thing to me now and to know that it can never be the same again scares me.
I know there are going to be people worse off than me this year and yes I do feel rather unqualified to be writing this and I apoligise to anyone who is really in a bad way but suppose what I really need is some support even if it is just advice on what to do or examples of things wor
king out it would really help me as I am feeling bad enough losing my family but to think of not being able to spend christmas with the most important person to me on earth is unbearable.
Sorry if this all sounds like a bit of a moan but I could really do with any support or advice you can give.
