Myrtle Beach Real Estate by Mirela

To All the Lonely People On Christmas Day:



You know who you are.   You're alone, pretending you are fine.  Today is a day like any other, or so you say to yourself, but you know better.  The whole World is celebrating.  Everyone seems to have someone, except for you. 


You are feeling like a miserable failure.  You remember other Christmases when you were surrounded by loved ones.  Where did those days go?


I'll tell you a secret:  you are not alone!  This is one of the loneliest days of the year for a lot of people.


I have a great idea:  since your day is shot anyway, why not make this a better day for someone else?  Pack up some gifts and go to a shelter, a hospital or a nursing home!  Pretend you are visiting a loved one there and find someone just as lonely as you are on this blessed day.  There are so many suffering people who have no one visiting them today.  You will be an Angel from up above for sharing a few bright moments, a hand holding and some kind, loving words.   


...And that my dear friend, is what Christmas is all about...


Merry Christmas!

It's really hard to celebrate and have fun when you see so many people around you who are lonely, unhappy, depressed or despondent.

Mirela - You are right, the holidays are a very difficult time to be alone.  You have offered some great solutions.  I always include friends of myself and my kids for my holiday dinners that I know are alone.  We usuallly end up with several extras which just makes the meal more festive.

Mirela,  This post touches my heart. I reminds me of how fortunate I am.  It puts many things into perspective.

Very good suggestion. I totally agree that the holidays can be some of the loneliest times of ones life.  Good idea Mirela.
