I'm so excited for Christmas, but at the same time, I'm so stressed about my financial situation. This year has been rough. I wasn't planning on spending a ton of money on gifts anyway, but I'm worried about whether or not I'll be able to get a gift for everyone who's important to me. I know I don't HAVE to give people gifts to show I care, and this confession probably makes me sound incredibly materialistic, but I just like to give people things. I show affection through gifts. I love seeing people's faces light up, or making them laugh with something goofy. I couldn't care less if I get any gifts. I just want to make my loved ones feel appreciated.
