The Holidays, why do they hurt? And what can we do about it?
Maybe you are overwhelmed with a shit ton of stress and anxiety. And of course you are! Not only do you fear your in-laws’ opinions of you this year (or godforbid your own family’s opinion), you’re just trying to be grateful that you didn’t have an underlying health concern that would have made surviving COVID less likely. You’re not sure you have hope in the future of the world anymore. You’re not sure what to believe from news sources anymore. You’re trying to not believe the filters and fake faces you see on Instagram but can’t help but feel inherently flawed.
