Christmas was approaching and all I wanted to do was hide. My life-long love of all things merry had vanished. Just a few days before I had been told my first marriage was about to end. “Joy to the World” wasn’t exactly my holiday sentiment as the word divorce echoed in my head. I was devastated.
Frankly, I didn’t want to be around happy people. My grief was too profound. I wasn’t sure I could handle it. Tears were too close to the surface.
How could the timing be any worse? As it turned out, the gathering of family and friends proved to be my soft place to land at a time I desperately needed comfort. Even so, it wasn’t easy.
Are the holidays a challenge for you too?
Holidays highlight our losses, at least for a while. Whether you’re going through divorce now or still adapting to life after divorce there are many adjustments. Even so, you can make choices that help you make the best of this holiday season.
I want to give you my Holiday Survival Guide, a short PDF. It is my prayer that this information helps you to survive the trials and even capture the joy of the season.
