For many people, going home for the holidays is a fun time of the year, but for the other half or tenth of us, going home for the holidays is an experience that we’d rather not subjective ourselves too. However, for better or for worse, we all make the treks to see our families and anxiety ensues.
I’m sure many of you, like me, battle depression or anxiety, and you most likely have low self-esteem, or you may even have less than zero self-esteem. That means seeing your family members and all of the triggers that come with it can be like walking through a minefield from the moment your holiday stay begins. You will most definitely step on a few mines. Body parts will be lost. And somehow you’ll still live. It will all hurt pretty badly because you can’t change your family members and they may not ever experience personal growth, or at least the kind of growth you want from them.
Ahem… some understanding and maybe even an apology for their behaviors towards you. Unfortunately, that most likely won’t happen. The only person you can change is yourself.
So after the holiday season is over, make your New Years resolution to grow and work on yourself and to help get your own demons under control. I know I sure will….or at least that’s what say to myself every year. HA!
Now for all of you in this boat with me, here’s a piece of bad poetry I wrote for this special occasion.
If you or a loved one you know is showing signs of a Mental Health Disorder, whether it be Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, Scizophrenia, Addiction, Body Dysmorphia etc., or maybe you just need someone to talk to, please do get the help you need. If you feel like you need to talk to someone right now, you can talk to one of the many fantastic therapists at Better Help by CLICKING HERE.
