The holiday season is upon us. Are you still frantically buying gifts and taking care of those last minute details? In your heart, you know that for the majority of the people in your life, the thought means nothing. It is all about the gift.
You do not want to let anyone on your shopping list down because you will never hear the end of it. So, you go into debt or scrimp on your own household's needs in order to feed someone else's ego.
Years go by and the resentment festers within you. Until one Christmas season, you make the decision to no longer sacrifice your finances and well-being in exchange for someone else's approval.
