As we move through the holiday season, people are often stressed out and hurting. What's missing in life may come into sharper focus at this time of year. A common struggle is that 'shoulds' may not have been fulfilled. For example, "I 'should' have a certain career, or be married, or 'should not' be divorced! I 'should' have this or that celebration, or the perfect family!'
If you know you’re prone to the holiday blues, realize you’re not alone and that there are steps you can take to help you feel more in control and even thrive during these celebrations.
The good news is that in allowing ourselves to feel and share difficult feelings, we can move
through them and live a more authentic and meaningful life. This is one of the best gifts we
can give ourselves.
