Can we have some real talk about the holidays?
For some people, the season is delightful and they look forward to connecting with family and friends.
For other people, it sucks. Full Stop. The buildup to the holidays is fraught with tension and anxiety. How do you tell your mother that you are not coming to Christmas because she makes you crazy? Or how do you relate to your father that his put downs and criticism mean you’d rather spend Thanksgiving getting a root canal than chowing down on turkey with him?
And don’t even get me started on all the cultural and media pressure to have Pinterest worthy gatherings with people you actually can’t stand and may even be toxic to you!
You are so not alone if your holidays are more like a Lifetime movie than a Hallmark commercial.
I’ve put together a little video for you with some holiday survival tips if you need them . Please share with other people who may need them as well!
I’d love to know what you would add to this list. Found something that works beautifully for you? Share it with us in the comments.
Much love, and may your holiday season be filled with whatever you need.
