What Do the Lonely Do At Christmas?
Many of us are single for the Holiday Season. Some of us detest and dread hanging out with our
dysfunctional a… I mean big happy families. Well many us are finding ways not to sing the Emotions “What do the lonely do at Christmas,” and to tell you the truth, I don’t want to sing that song. I love the Emotions, but not that particular song.
One way to cure your loneliness is to know that you are not alone. We may feel like we don’t have the proper survival tools, but we do. Here are some simple, NON ALCOHOLIC, NON BGC, NON A4A tips, at keeping yourself from Old Man Lonely.
- Stay the Hell Away from hook up sites such as, BGC, A4A, and Gay.Com, even Craigslist. That will lead to meaningless sex that will have you having sex for validation. At the end, you’re back at square one.
- Call some good friends together and you all can set a time to go to the movies or spend some time together. Friends are the best to hang around during the holidays. Isn’t that what Christmas is about, family and friends sharing love together?
- Avoid alcohol and drugs when dealing with family. We all have that drunkard relative or that pothead in the family. If you don’t know who that person may be, it may be you. However, if you must deal with your crazy family from hell, refrain from drug use and alcohol. This can cause true emotions to come up that may include anger and can actually ruin the perfect family moment and you can actually end up being the villain.
- If you aren’t able to be around your family for the holidays, you can actually be a blessing to others. Find a local charity or rescue mission that is helping those less fortunate and share in events that they are having or that they are giving. I’ve learned that helping in the community will help ease the holiday tensions.
- Go to church or whatever religious sect you are apart of. Since Christmas is on a Sunday this year, many of us will find ourselves in church, at synagogue, or at some type of religious gathering. If you are religious (no shade and not preaching), gather among your brethren and share holiday love with them. Someone may even invite you to share with them and their family for the holidays.
There are many things that we can do to make the yuletide bright. It doesn’t have to include sex, drugs, and alcohol. You can also check out Musique’s Poetry for a unique stamp on the 12 days of Christmas,
