It's amazing how during this time of year filled with people, parties, cheer and celebrations, we can often feel more alone than ever. In fact, it's not unusual to numbly bulldoze our way through the holidays (and most of the other 11 months) with a forced smile, acting like we are fine, fine, fine.
However, underneath it all we feel overwhelmed (and guilty about feeling overwhelmed) spending our energy trying to feel the way we think we are supposed to feel, saying the things we think people want to hear, doing things we think people want us to do and then judging ourselves for doing it all wrong.
It's exhausting and painful.
It's heavy and lonely.
