I'm always working over the holidays and I can't seem to stop myself from picking up shifts which I know some people can relate to. I don't have a family though, so I feel like it stops me from being lonely but now I've been invited to a friendsgiving and I feel like I'm really regretting it. Do I need to start making a change and not working as much, even though no one really misses me much usually?

That's so sad. Have you tried reconnecting with any family or friends? It's good to socialize sometimes. Maybe you can make time with people you lost contact with, because you don't want to spend all your time at work I wouldn't think.

It's totally okay to consider taking a break and enjoying the holidays with friends. If the idea of a Friendsgiving sounds appealing, maybe try taking some time off to join them. You deserve to have a break too.

I think there’s always a balance. I used to always volunteer to work Christmas but made sure to join Friendsgivings so I don’t feel lonely.
