They’re just so hard. Whether giving one or attending one. Hard. Don’t want to. Avoid, avoid, avoid. Say yes, then say no. Sorry. I am venting. I wish I could just do it without all this internal fighting.
Thank you for providing this possibility. I hadn’t considered that it might get easier in the future—but thinking that way is helpful. Also, forgot about all the birthday stuff that just went by for me, makes sense there would be a connection.Perhaps in the future they won't be so hard?
