Joy to the World! ‘Tis the season to be Jolly! Everyone is happy during the holiday season—Right!? Wrong! Truth be told, many people feel lonely, sad, anxious, and depressed all through the holidays, especially those who have lost loved ones in the past or during the year. Grief can hit especially hard as the holiday season approaches.
The Holiday Season can bring back painful emotions and memories. There are various ways to cope with this grief. Try to volunteer, donate your time, spend time with loved ones and friends, Give back, and Share. Seek guidance and help with professionals or even close friends and family. If your old traditions bring up bad memories, then start a new tradition!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
