Whoo...hoo.

2. Because there is literally nothing more you hate than receiving gifts.

3. Maybe something like this happened to you when you were a kid.

"Remember the year Pop-Pop gave you a concussion? Good times."

4. Or perhaps something like this happened to you as an adult.

If you look closely, you can see the heartless jerk locking the door with the key fob.

5. Or maybe you honestly just received a ton of disappointing gifts growing up.

"THIS ISN'T EVEN TWO-PLY!"

6. But just entering the month of December dials up your anxiety by 30%.

There is SO MUCH pressure to like your gifts that it feels like diamonds are being made in your stomach.

7. Every time someone mentions how excited they are for you to open their gift, you feel exponentially worse.

"OH GOD OH GOD. WHAT IF IT'S AN ITEM OF CLOTHING I'D NEVER WEAR AND WILL NOW BE FORCED TO WEAR EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE THIS RELATIVE UNTIL NEXT YEAR WHEN THEY GIVE ME SOMETHING WORSE?"

8. It's especially bad if the gift is handmade.

"I...love the effort you put into whatever this is!"

9. And being around people who are actually excited about opening gifts is objectively awful.

"What's wrong with them? Wait, what's wrong with me?!"

10. It takes a lot of energy and acting for you to try and match their excitement level.

11. But, somehow, it just doesn't come off as genuine.

Even though you spent hours practicing that smile in the mirror.

12. At the end of the day, you've learned to just show your appreciation by saying two simple words.

After all, it'd be way worse to not get anything at all, right?

13. Despite how you might feel on the inside.

Keep the salt for yourself. It's better for everyone that way.
