The family holiday get together – a time when we experience the peace, love and joy that spending all day with our loved ones brings… Or so the greeting cards say. What the greeting cards and cute commercials with their glossy pictures of smiling couples and gathered in-laws neglect to mention is the stress that actually occurs for most of us because someone in the family doesn’t get along with someone else (or maybe Nobody else) and everyone waits for that dreaded moment when it all falls apart.
Do you have “greeting card holidays”, or does this description look more like your reality? Relationships can be both strained and straining during the holidays and most people could use a little help navigating the waters of so many relationships thrown into the same room for hours on end. It makes you miss the freedom of being silent and thus protected from so much banal conversation, right? Fortunately, help is available and we’d love to help you have Happier Holidays this year.
So we wish you Happy Holidays and invite you to take care of yourself this season by connecting with other people’s stories and joining the discussion about your holiday challenges and your ideas on how to make the best of this season.
