Last year, holiday depression sequestered me inside for much of the season. I just didn’t have it in me to leave the house. My house was pretty, warm, and safe.

The holidays create a lot of dark places and no matter how many strands of twinkle lights you use to decorate it, it doesn’t seem any brighter.

I so very happily happily accepted the invite because I’ve stopped wallowing. I saw it for exactly what it was: my friends appreciate my existence, love me and want to spend more time connecting with me.
