Anyone here who is bothered by the things associated with celebrating festivals? Anyone! Please! I’ll take anything. I am so bothered by these annoying little things that come with any festive event (except for Christmas, because that is totally discretionary for me to celebrate).
So, I have a four day weekend starting tomorrow on account of Diwali (yay!!). But there’s going to be so much to do over these four days. And so much anxiety. To just get over with all the chores and come back to my house and chill. I may be most stressed about visiting people across towns (me familia, mostly) and the dressing up to do that. Oh so much dressing up! So much anxiety!
I have never liked to put an effort in my appearance, even before the pandemic and have totally lost the will to do so over the last two years. It is going to be so taxing for me to attempt to look festival ready over the next few days. This human body needs so much maintainance! Every part of my body feels neglected. Uuuggghhh 😤
I do like to dress up for my husband though and more importantly he likes it too. We have this whole process where I show him outfits and he picks which one to wear and then we do the shoes and then the accessories. And honestly he has a better fashion sense than me. I know!!
Ok! As usual I digressed there a bit but you get it, I am stressed around festivals. And I look for support because everyone around me gets so chirpy and happy and excited. Maybe it is because I’m lazy or maybe because of some childhood trauma or maybe just a phase but I have 4 long days ahead and I am allowed to rant a little. At least here. Right?
PS :Happy Diwali 🌟🌟 and stay safe!
PPS: I can’t get started on the pollution and the firecrackers so will store that for next time.
