How Much Self-Inflicted Pain Did You Endure This Christmas?
Did you over cook the roast? Or burn the pie crust? Were all the gifts wrapped to perfection? Did the Christmas cards get mailed on time? Did everything on your list get done? Just think of the countless ways we heap guilt and shame on ourselves when life is messy and unfinished!
