You should also realize that these family holidays will not be here forever. Neither will your parents or family members. And once you reach that point, you will cherish the Christmas memories you make now for the rest of your life. So try to keep your negative feelings aside and enjoy the moment. This is a magical time for your whole family to get together and rebuild broken connections. To share a day together. To make some new memories.
“The Christmas spirit – love – changes hearts and lives.” – Pat Boone
Focus on shared connections instead of looking for happiness. Understand your family, their troubles, problems, fears, loves, dreams, hopes, and expectations from you. Give them the love you seek from them and expect nothing in return, except for some memories.
And maybe a little peace on Earth.
After all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy 2020.
