Grief and the Holidays
grief and the holidays
Ever feel like you just can’t quite enjoy the holidays because you’re in the middle of an emotional shitstorm that seems to make the season trying, stressful, and overwhelming? Maybe it’s your first holiday after being newly divorced. Or maybe it’s the fifth Christmas without your beloved mother, and you can’t seem to understand why it’s still so damn hard for you. Or perhaps you just moved your family across the country and although it was an amazing decision for you, you still find yourself incredibly nostalgic, overly emotional, and sensitive.
If any of that sounds familiar, it’s likely that there is something in your world that needs a little processing. (And, no there’s nothing wrong with you.) Perhaps what’s tugging at you is the need for full-on grieving the loss of a loved one, which feels exacerbated by the sentimental tone of the holiday. Or perhaps it’s as simple as “a case of the blues” because you’ve changed jobs and aren’t able to do the gift exchange with your previous company you were with for ages.
Whatever you may be going through in your life, if you’ve created any changes in patterns, it’s likely that there may be a bit (or a shit ton) of emotion to work through… especially during this time of year. Even if you don’t think grief is called for, have a listen through this episode where I share six things you can do to work through all the “feels” you’re having during this temperamental time. And, P.S. dealing with your feels doesn’t mean you’re weak, too dramatic, or too sensitive. It just means you’re fucking human. And, brave.

- The best way to set yourself up for success if you KNOW the holidays will make your current life circumstances extra tough
