This time of year is very difficult for some. The lights, decorations and pressure, is not exciting to everyone. Some really struggle this time of year when it is expected that we buy lots of things, dress nice and be with family. Some of us have lost family, or lost touch with family, others have lost loved ones in one way or another. Grief can be part of your holidays and it may be important to understand that it is okay.
It is okay to be sad, to miss what you once had or be sad for what you never had. You don't have to be anything, not happy, not cheerful and not even with others if that is what is causing you grief. Take time to take care of yourself this time of year especially if you are grieving.
