If You Can Relate to These Struggles, You're Actually the Grinch

Remember when the Grinch was the most disliked icon of Christmas season?

I mean he stole everyone's presents—young me was absolutely shocked at someone who couldn't understand the spirit of Christmas.

Well, suddenly it's 10 years later and I've realized I relate to the Grinch more than I care to admit. From his tendency to eat trash, to his desire to keep his dog as his only friend, I'm actually pretty sure I grew up to be the Grinch.

If you can relate, keep scrolling for 15 struggles that indicate you're actually the Grinch.

1.You're not a big fan of leaving your bed because every time you venture out into the world someone inevitably wants to talk to you. Can't they see that you just want to walk through life in silence, totally ignoring everyone you see? You know, like a normal person.

2. Every time someone asks you to do the simplest of tasks, it feels like they're demanding too much of you. I don't have time to help you with your problems, I have enough of my own. Okay?

3. You genuinely think you're the funniest person you've ever met. Never mind that no one laughs at your jokes except you.

4. You constantly lie to yourself about your actual health goals. Even if you're feeling particularly good one day, you already know you're going to ruin it within the week, probably by eating a massive slice of cake you don't need.

5. You genuinely question why you would ever leave the comfort of your bed. You've got food, fuzzy clothing and Netflix—what else could you possibly need?

6. It doesn't matter how much you eat when you're at home, you're still always hungry. You just had lunch, a bag of chips, a banana and three cookies but you're still craving another snack because you literally have nothing else to do but eat.
