Oh, the holidays—-that wonderful time of the year where you get a helping a mashed potatoes with a side of side-eye from your grandma. Yeah, the good stuff.
When I was younger, I didn’t think much about the holidays or the stress that comes with it, but as I’ve gotten older, there are things that I dread. #1 being the questions about my life and what the heck is happening with it.
It’s hard to get past most of the conversations and the feelings of disappointment that undoubtedly come with them, but there is a small light at the end of the tunnel.
Grab a large glass of whiskey or coffee and join me as I dissolve the going-home-for-the-holidays belief that every question your family asks you is an attack, how to get out of the conversations you don’t want to have and why letting go of our expectations of ourselves is the real key to surviving the holidays.
