It's the most wonderful time of the year. Or so we keep telling ourselves. And it can be. I mean, what's not to love about cheese and wine and too much of both, right? Except the idea that you're supposed to be having a good time because "Christmas" and this makes you not having a good time feel all the worse. It's like one big magnifying glass for all your insecurities lasering in on any loneliness, self doubt or general existential angst making for a really sexy and fun depressive episode. And what's the holiday season without it?
I get that a guide to self care can seem condescending (like, bitch, I know I need to wash my hair okay?) but writing one is as much an act of it for me as anything else. So this holiday season - and y'know - life in general it's time to look at a few ways to look after your god damn self.
