Christmas is coming, and I’m alone. I feel abandoned by a world of people who are happily busy in gayety and plans for more.

My family is punishing me for not being obedient. I am stretching my heart and mind into realms that intrigue me and offer me new satisfying direction. That's belittled.

I’m not included in celebrations. I’m invited to events with 20 minutes notice. I don’t respond.
