I really think I’m done even acknowledging holidays anymore. I’ve always hated Xmas and I definitely hate Easter. I have grown to just not care about Valentines Day even though it’s the same day as our anniversary. Now I’m adding Mother and Father’s Day to this list because quite honestly as far as I can tell it’s just a way to push guilt onto people.
Let me explain first that I’m a really great daughter. Now, I haven’t always but as an adult I’ve been a really great one. I call my mom at least once a week if not more and not because I have to but because I want to. I answer the phone 95% of the time when she calls. I reply to most of her emails and I make actual time for her.
Then comes Mother’s Day. I decided I would call her later that day, because things calm down and I can have an actual conversation. Instead I first get a text from my twat of a brother who reminds me to call my mom, yeah thanks I’m not a fucking moron and you are 7 years younger than me so shut the fuck up. Then I get a call from my mother around 5pm because I had left her a happy mothers day on Facebook and that it was about time. About time??
I’m just so fucking sick of the guilt of holidays and I’m just done with it. I’m going to let everyone know I’m not celebrating or acknowledging them anymore. They can judge me by how I treat people throughout the year and if I was a shit then I deserve it but if I was a good person then treat me that way. I don’t care about holidays and I’m sick of feeling bad because of what is fucking expected of me during them. Holidays bring out the absolute worst in people.
Holidays are all a fucking joke. Love the people in your life everyday, it shouldn’t be that hard. You shouldn’t need Hallmark to tell you how you feel.
