Holidays - Emotional times?
For many of us, the holidays are stressful times and can be very emotional. Movies, books, and television all tell us the holidays are perfect occasions surrounded by our loving family and friends. In reality, there are way too many unhappy, lonely, depressed people. This is a great time to practice empathy. Reach out to those who might be alone. Spread kindness. Practice being more intelligent with our emotions. Don't allow rude mean people to destroy your joy. Choose wisely who to spend your time with. Remember that the holidays can be painful reminders for some. Give the gift of understanding this year. I'm thankful for my loved ones (my dogs, my friends, and some of my family). I hope everyone has a safe and peaceful holiday season. Happy Holidays, Professor G!
