It’s the holidays and everyone is in the festive mood, but your not. It’s hard to grieve because you feel like you are dragging down the mood wherever you go. Does that sound familar to you? Where do you fit in during the joyful holidays?
I sometimes feel like running away from it all, but that’s just my sad side overtaking me during the holidays. There is nothing wrong with me. Whatever my feelings, they are legitimate. The problem with suffering in silence is that I’m don’t feel supported. It’s best just to say that “I’m not into the season” and not let fear of judgment stop me from sharing my feelings.
People who care will understand and those that don’t … will lets just say that I have had to move away from some negative and unsupportive people and you may have to do the same.
