Xmas lights.

Why do you need someone to touch you to feel again.
Surely that is not a requirement to feel alive.
I don't need anyone to be able to function, I never have, because everyone will always leave.
So why now?

Yes I know the psychology behind it, I am a nurse, so I get it.

So after losing a child, a father, a sister, and getting divorced twice...it makes no sense now..this numb feeling is so strange.

In order to give to others you need to have something to give, there's always been a lot to give, but today if you cut me open I wouldn't even bleed.

Love yourself first I am told, but where did I go.
I am a house full of Xmas lights and if you switch on the lights inside the Xmas lights will go off, so you leave the inside in darkness.

Very poignant write Ladyjewel,
Feelings reach a heightened state at this time of year, especially those of loss.
I wish you a bright and positive New Year.

Would be great if the "xmas" was written as "Christmas"

May the confidence you strive to bring out, make you find peace within yourself.

Have a blissful, blessed 2024
peace cheering
Sounds like your burned out to me. Praying things will get better for you in the new year.
