The Holiday Blues


Whether this time of year always gave you the blues or this year is particularly distressing, remember that there are many triggers out there that are difficult to avoid. Every television show and commercial portrays the idealized image of a perfect holiday and will elicit memories of times past. Many of our memories become "sanitized" with time and we forget the tensions and family squabbles.

Sometimes in looking back we get mired in regret and recriminations. This is also hurtful. There is no healthy point in "shoulding" ourselves.

When our thoughts turn to sadness and loss, let's give ourselves permission to revisit these feelings BRIEFLY and then give ourselves permission to let them go.

As we feel stronger, we will create new traditions and new memories that will add to the richness of our lives.

Please check out my Upcoming Program page for workshops and support groups that I hope will be found interesting and helpful. I look forward to meeting you in person !

Be kind to yourself at this tender time of year.
