Having severe, severe family issues, stemming back before Christmas. Husband told me I'd ruined Christmas altogether for our family. Need I say more.

I'm so sorry for your sadness, DQ. It's unfortunately true that not all people can relate to how deeply something can affect us at times. It's also unfortunately true that happiness can't be faked whether for Christmas or any other time. Praying things get better for you, and even though I don't know you well, I see you here every day, so send hugs your way. Judy

It's hard to believe - after reading your bio - and with as much "care" as I read into it - that you single-handedly ruined Christmas. Take heart DQ - people allows want to place blame somewhere for something not living up to their expectations. It's easy to place blame or shift blame instead of asking yourself if you/ youself could have done any better. I know I may be sticking my nose into something that's non of my concern - but it sounds like to me there are deeper issues here - and more than enough room for everyone to take some responsibility. Fault finding is an easy hunt - - forgiveness and resolution is harder to track ,,,but with perseverance and acceptance it is attainable. And with God... ALL things are possible - - I'm praying.

P.S. - - I'm not Dr. Phil(lis) - just a concerned AR friend - and a praying buddy.

Sorry DQ. I know you put so much love into your Christmas plans because every day you were baking your little heart out. If you think you did something to upset everyone, apologize. If not, just keep on doing your best and move on.

DQ - I am so sorry that you are feeling down right now. But you have every reason to feel that way. We are all entitled to our feelings. Speaking from experience; sometimes we don't always feel like baking or even smiling. Your job isn't to entertain your family.It isn't one person's responsibility to "make" Christmas. You have feelings too. I wish I could hug you in person. Have a wonderful day and know I am thinking of you.

DQ-I will be thinking of you. I hope things get better for you. I wish you peace and good health in the New Year.

i am so sorry :( i know someone else going through a similar situation...with a husband placing all blame and fault on the wife, and it does stem from years of other issues. i am so sorry you are going through this. i agree with luv2cook, and you will also be in my prayers. when you can't stand, kneel and trust in God.

Lots of good advice and thoughts and prayers and all; ditto to all of them and thinking of you. A long, long time ago a counselor told me that my husband could only make me feel guilty if I gave him the power to do so. Now, that's kind of simplistic, but it is true. Of course we are all sensitive to our loved ones' comments and feelings about us. But it's also a powerful statement. So next time hurtful comments were said instead of begging and crying and pleading, I said 'I'm sorry you feel that way'. It was not easy. I still felt awful but not quite as awful as before. I hope I'm not making the situation sound simple; I know that it's not, but I wanted to share this tool/technique that helped me thru some difficulties.
