|With the holidays fast approaching I'm beginning to feel the stress build up even more than usual.|
I've been living off my savings as I'm trying to get my startup going which means my budget for gifts is really low. All around me friends and family are cheerfully buying gifts as they have full time jobs. I feel that around me, no one really understands the position I'm in and I feel guilty and truly sad that I cannot match their generosity.
Is this something that other entrepreneurs are going through and feel the same way?
Or am I feeling like this is because I've commercialized Christmas by thinking gifts are necessary. I feel that my niece or nephew wouldn't understand not getting a gift from me during this time of year.
