The little things are what it’s all about.
Being able to live with parents is a blessing, really.
Animals are important companions.
Do you remember growing pains when you were a kid? That aching burn as your bones elongated? Emotional growth is like that too.
You don’t owe anyone your time.
Travel arrangements and heartache don’t mix.
Struggling to create a new stability with a new person.
Your reaction is more important than whatever went wrong.
Keep your sanity and happiness, skip the festivities.
Allow your daughters to say no when they don’t want to hug people.
Misdirecting rage at strangers
And no, you don’t have to meditate for an hour.
After trauma, life becomes about coping until healing can begin and resilience is built.
Decisions and anxiety.
What matters most when making holiday memories.
When we work to combat and reduce judgmental thoughts, we bring ourselves closer to the people in our lives.
