When The Holidays Bring Sadness
The Holiday time of year is filled with parties, decorations, holiday music and increased expectations of happiness and delight. Some people this is true, but for others it brings sadness. Sometimes that sadness is grief for loved ones who have passed on, for others its deep sense of loneliness, while for others it may be anxiety triggering because of the tight schedules, financial burdens or social pressures. No matter the reason, it’s important to honour how you are feeling and to take steps to help you cope during the holidays.
Honour your loved ones who are no longer here. Whether it makes putting their photos out, or getting a special ornament to represent your love and relationship; sometimes incorporating a special sentimental item is helpful to still feel connected.
Take time for quiet. This time of year can be especially busy and draining. So schedule quiet time to do some of the things you love to do that are not holiday related, like read a book, listen to non-holiday music, or take a walk. A time out for yourself can go a long way to help you through this time of year.
Talk it out. Spend some time with a friend or a journal to talk about how you are feeling and work through it. Sometimes just putting emotions into words is enough to release it.
Create new traditions. Starting a new tradition is a great way to release yourself from the past and to look forward to the years ahead.
