Overcoming Holiday Grief

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is easy to become depressed. Whether if it’s dealing with stress or grieving over family members that are no longer with us. You are not alone, we’re all going through it, especially now due to the pandemic.

My sadness stems from missing family members that are no longer here. It typically starts on Thanksgiving and lasts until the day after Christmas. Sometimes it is difficult to keep a positive mindset when your family is on your mind. I often remind myself to be grateful for the time that I shared with them instead of the time I don’t have anymore.

The holidays don’t have to be perfect, don’t stress over the small details. Don’t commit yourself to so many tasks; learn to say no if you are feeling overwhelmed. This is the time that you should enjoy company and not worry. With planning in advance, you can find peace and joy rather than dread the holiday season.

Sincerely, Searcy

One thought on “Overcoming Holiday Grief

  1. This is definitely a real thing. Since my cousin’s passing, we’ve felt the hole his presence left, especially during Thanksgiving. We just continue to love, laugh, and be merry because we know he would not want us to dwell but to live.
