Should I feel bad for not wanting to go home for Christmas?

Anonymous
It's not because of the pandemic, although that does add to the list. I've been fairly depressed, and going home right now just feels like a chore. It's nothing against my family. I enjoy seeing them, but I feel forced to put on a fake smile while I'm down (though my nieces makes that a lot easier).

Not to mention, it's a four hour drive one way. I just went down for Thanksgiving, which feels like it was just a week ago, so I don't want to do it again, even though I said I would. I have things I need to do here as well, and going home means putting them off.
