Seasonal woes

A recycled post but then this is a valid message year in, year out.

Christmas is almost on us again. A happy time for many of us, a time that invokes significant distress for others, as is reflected in the increased number of calls to the office.

Christmas is a time that heightens any vulnerabilities. Whether it triggers grief for those lost or for something we maybe never had, whether it highlights a sense of isolation or perhaps sets off traumatic memories, whether the stress of preparing and the management of family relationships hits home, the flipside of Christmas is less than positive.

Important then, as Christmas nears, that we keep an eye out for those who might not be doing so well at this time of year. Please find some helpful hints in this earlier post.

I agree. As much as it is a time for closeness, family friends and joy, it is a time to provide comfort for others less fortunate. Or alone.

Very much worth remembering. Holidays can be so tough for those without close friends nearby or for those who would really rather not have anything to do with extended family.
