So sorry, friend. I've got no words of wisdom to offer (except to echo what was already said above), just a virtual hug and a promise that, though it may not feel like it to you right now, you DO matter, you DO have value, and even this disillusionment will be redeemed eventually. Nothing is wasted.

I love Advent because it is a chance to acknowledge the darkness surrounding us while simultaneously remembering and hoping for the return of the light. I grew up in a Christian tradition that didn't make much of the advent season, only focusing on Christmas itself, but these days I need that liturgy, that acknowledgement of seasons of darkness and heaviness, without losing sight of the seasons of light and renewal to come.

Keep your Christmas lights up into January and February, if you need. Your own private reminder that the darkness isn't here forever, not for the earth and not for you either.
