There is a time and a place for lies, and at your family home during the holidays is one of those times and places. Just because we're sharing a dinner table with our family members doesn't mean they need to know how we really feel about them. Because in the words of Lizzo, "truth hurts." And holidays are painful enough without adding honesty into the mix.
1.) From Shade0X:
that I'm getting annoyed by all the negativity they keep spreading
it feels like they don't even want to be happy
2.) From ilovetotransfuse:
I lost all respect for my Dad, I'm starting to get sick of the family gatherings around Christmas time and I'm seriously thinking about just taking vacation around the holidays to Florida.
